Glowing Sculler

You will constantly find old cigarette and tobacco cards for sale on eBay. The one above (which, however, is rare on eBay) was issued by Bocnal Tobacco Co in the U.K. in 1938 and comes from a set entitled Luminous Silhouettes of Beauty + Charm and measures 2.7 by 1.4 inches. It is No. 6 in a set of 25 other sport ‘glowing cards’. Below you can read on the back of the card that if you hold the card under a light it will glow in the dark, which it still does although it is more than 70 years old.
