The 25 card set of 1898 Wills Conundrums trading cards offer punny riddles that only the young smoker of 1898 could appreciate. Each card front features an illustration and a riddle question with the answer printed on the back of the card.

There are variations to the card backs with some cards offering an album to collectors and others printed in different ink colors meaning a completist will have more than 25 cards to track down for this collection.
