The Up-In-Smoke Cigar Band Museum. "There are nearly 800 different vintage cigar bands currently displayed in the Museum, selected from my own collection. The cigar bands are displayed in exhibits contained in 12 different galleries arranged by general subject." Aaah, ephemera! My favorite galleries: "Men in Big Red Hats" and "Daddies, Baddies, Beauties, Babes, and Brothers."

Wow, it's nice to see this link here. This is my oldest brother's site. His collection is huge (as you might guess).

Cigar bands - aren't they the ones that play cigar-box guitars?

This is an excellent link. The galleries are wonderful -- be sure not to miss the cigar-band folk art.

This is cool. I used to collect cigar bands when I was a kid, had them sent from relatives in the Netherlands.
