A Bull Durham trade card with a verse for Republicans and another verse for Democrats. A souvenir of the 1872 Grant / Tilden election cycle. Looks like Grant got the LARGE treatment ...

Tilden was the Democrat nominee in 1876, when Grant was not a candidate. If these are from 1872, it is a fascinating indication of how far ahead the Democrats were looking. They were not going to waste time publicizing Greeley.

I guess the Democrats didn't think that Horace Greeley was a candidate that was going to do well with getting publicity on a package of tobacco
