Sweet Caporal was a brand of cigarettes created by the Kinney Brothers Tobacco Company in 1878. Sweet Caporal was a very popular brand, especially in Canada during the early part of the 20th Century. One of the brand's notable distinguishing features was the inclusion of a collectible and tradable cigarette card in each pack, some of which showcased famous athletes or witty sayings of the 1890s to 1900s. Kinney Brothers Tobacco Company was sold to the American Tobacco Company in 1911.
