Cigarette & Trade Cards Valuations

Cigarette cards originate from the late nineteenth century and were first produced in America. Providing accurate cigarette card valuations requires a detailed understanding of the history of each manufacturer and the cards they issued. Often beautifully illustrated, an early cigarette cards value will depend upon the period of history it documents and its condition.

As one of the leading international providers of cigarette card valuations, Warwick & Warwick has been trusted for its trade card knowledge and expertise for many years.

If you’re thinking of selling collectable cigarette cards, our valuations are meticulously researched and 100 per cent reliable.

Boasting a reputation which is second to none among cigarette card collectors, and clubs alike, you can rely on our friendly and useful advice to help you achieve the maximum possible returns on any items you may want to sell.

Although our expertise is free and you will not be under any obligation to sell your cards, we will give you the chance to do so in one of our cigarette card auctions or a sale by private treaty.

If you’d prefer to keep the collectables in your family for another generation, that’s fine too – our aim is simply to help you make an informed decision.

Factors which affect cigarette cards prices

When it comes to assessing a cigarette cards price or value, the most important factor is its condition.

Cards which have been stuck down, even in a specially designed album, or are damaged will be of little value.

Other factors which influence a cigarette card valuation are:

  • Age
  • Rarity
  • Manufacturer
  • Title of the set
  • Image on the front

Although cigarette cards values do fluctuate, most collectors take up the hobby for the love of collecting and not for their worth.

However, we are always delighted when one of our cigarette card valuations is met by an unexpectedly positive reaction.
