Each card has a numismatic-like portrait followed by a brief biography, generally two or three paragraphs long. The backs of the cards are blank other than a neat ownership inscription of "A. O. Sullivan". The cards measure 10 by 7 cm, or 4 by 2. 75 inches, each. There is some light soilage here and there and light toning throughout. All cards are stiff as they should be and without creasing. There is no box.
