The following chart contains virtually every set issued between 1886 and 1930 in which baseball cards (or coupons redeemable for baseball cards) were inserted into cigarette boxes or tobacco packs. Information in the chart is organized as follows.

  • The first column contains the year of manufacture of the set.
  • The second column contains the American Card Catalog (ACC) number assigned to the set by Jefferson Burdick.
  • The third column contains the size of the pack in which the baseball cards were originally inserted. For example, if a baseball card was packaged inside a cigarette box, the number of cigarettes (or "size") of the cigarette box is provided. If the baseball card was packaged in a tobacco pack, the type of tobacco product is provided.
  • The fourth column provides details on the configuration / style of the cigarette or tobacco pack.
  • Lastly, the fifth column contains the manufacturer of the set. Each “name” in this fifth column is an active link. When you click on the link, a new page will open that contains a detailed scan of the cigarette box or tobacco pack that the baseball card was packaged in, a detailed scan of the baseball card itself, a general overview of the set, a general overview of the cigarette box or tobacco pack, and the approximate value of the cigarette box or tobacco pack.

    Please note: The chart below is organized alphabetically by ACC#.
    Sets that do not have an assigned ACC number have been organized chronologically and appear at the end of the chart.
