    This beautiful advertising piece was found in a barn under a bunch of old newspapers, just kidding. I found this trade card at a antique mall in mason michigan, in a presidential booth (no pun intended). I took it out of the frame and discovered it was it was a metamorphical trade card. Flip it closed, it shows Samuel Tilden, a libral running for the democratic nomination in 1880. And flip it open, shows ulysees S. Grant, running for the Republican nomniation. This kinda reminds me of a 1907 coca- cola trade card. It also appears to be trimmed. There are poems for each of the people...

    Samuel Tilden-
    COME ALL YOU TRUE BORN DEMOCRATS,
    YOU HARDY HEARTS OF OAK,
    WHO KNOW A THING WHEN IT IS GOOD
    AND BLACKWELL'S DURHAM SMOKE,
    GAZE AT THIS FACE AND YOU WILL SEE
    YOUR PRESIDENTIAL NOMINEE
    THE SAGE AND STATESMAN S. J. T.

    Ulysees Grant-
    AND ALL YOU GOOD REPUBLICANS,
    WILL SURELY BE ENCHANTED,
    WHEN YOU BEHOLD THE VISTAGE HERE,
    AND TAKE THE FACT FOR GRANTED
    THAT HE WILL WIN, IF HE WILL BE
    YOUR PRESIDENTIAL NOMINEE
    THE SOLDIER HERO U.S.G.

    BUT THOUGH YOU DIFFER IN YOUR VIEWS
    POLITICAL WE HOPE
    YOU CONCIDE WHEN WE REMARK
    THE CHOICEST BRAND TO SMOKE
    IS BLACKWELL'S GENUINE DURHAM, THAT
    SUITS EVERY TASTE NO MATTER WHAT
    REPUBLICAN OR DEMOCRAT

    The colorful advertising is on the back.
