A complete set of (6) H804-16 Forbes Company trade cards. This set, which was issued in 1887, features baseball comics. Of particular note is the presence of an overprint bearing the name of "Geo A. Sweet's; For Fine Pictures and Frames" on the front of each of the cards. While it is not unheard of to find trade cards with advertisement overprints, having a complete set with the same advertiser is quite uncommon. The cards measure 3" x 4 3/4" and all are affixed to a scrapbook page. The reverse of the page has period trade cards, which are not sport related, attached as well.
