American cartoonist Rube Goldberg created the "I've got a pair of queens" image, featuring Augustus Mutt from cartoonist Budd Fisher's comic Mutt and Jeff. The image was used as an insert card for Sweet Caporal Little Cigars, Derby Little Cigars, Sweet Caporal Tobacco Wrapper, and Sovereign Little Cigars produced by the Kinney Brothers Tobacco Company.
