Lighthouse Cigarette Cards (Collectables) - Seeing The Light

I've been collecting and selling trading cards, cigarette cards and related collectables for over twenty years. Before you read this guide please subscribe to my card collecting newsletters for updates on rare cards and tips on buying by Clicking Here, thank you.

Lighthouses have been saving the lives of seafarers for thousands of years. The Pharos of Alexandria is the earliest known lighthouse and was considered to be one of the seven wonders of the world. The traditional lighthouse is fast becoming a rarity as they become replaced by more sophisticated electronic navigation aids - radar beacons, radio beacons and satellite systems.

  Maritime antiques are extremely popular on eBay and lighthouse cigarette cards are avidly sought after, especially since only a few sets were devoted purely to lighthouses. I've listed a small selection of cards sets containing lighthouses below. I've provided scans of a sample card from each set and I've tried to list as many card titles as possible.
