About T84 Golden Grain Motion Picture Stars Tobacco Cards
The T84 in the title is an American Card Catalog (A.C.C.) designation from Jefferson Burdick. The "T" stands for Twentieth Century Tobacco Issues.
Issued by Brown & Williamson Tobacco Corp. out of Louisville, KY in the USA. With Golden Grain brand tobacco.
Each card measures approximately 1-5/8" X 2-3/4 inches.
Unnumbered set of 50 cards.
Name of film star in bold text at top on back with text description of star and latest work.
As noted in Forbes & Mitchell's American Tobacco Cards each of the 50 film stars in this set was then at either Universal, Warner Brothers or Paramount studios.
This limitation gives the Golden Grain set an interesting composition. Many supporting players appear in the Golden Grain set who do not typically appear in other card sets of the period.
Key cards include James Cagney, Bette Davis, Cary Grant and Joan Blondell.
At this time the front and back of 47 of the 50 Golden Grain cards appear in our Gallery. A complete listing of all 50 cards in the set follow below.
