An eight-sided look at those exquisite Garbaty cards




More than a decade ago, Carole & Co. ran several entries on arguably the most artistic Carole Lombard trading cards ever created (https://carole-and-co.livejournal.com/205341.html; https://carole-and-co.livejournal.com/231568.html). They were issued by the Garbaty tobacco company of Germany, whose owners were Jewish -- which explains why they sold the company for a fraction of its worth in the late 1930s, fleeing to America to escape the Nazi regime.

Three series of film star cards were issued; all of them, including at least eight featuring Lombard's image, are highly prized by collectors. It seemed time to renew interest in them, especially since a Canadian seller has eight available for purchase. The one above, for instance. It sells for $5.62 U.S. (current exchange rate) and can be found at https://www.ebay.com/itm/CAROLE-LOMBARD-CARD-GARBATY-SULTAN-COLLECTION-ROSS-GREAT-PHOTO/153943256473?hash=item23d7bbad99:g:MR4AAOSwCEteyCSV.
