A Variety of Burdock Blood Bitters Trade Cards

26 November 2011

Apple-Touch-IconAI probably have a couple of dozen Burdock Blood Bitters Trade cards that I have picked up over the years. It seems like someone once told me that there were over a hundred different cards printed and distributed for marketing purposes. Far more than any other bitters trade card. I have posted a few of my examples. Look at all of the different logo and type style treatments for the copy Burdock Blood Bitters and BBB. For more information on Burdock Blood Bitters:
