I have about 20 old trade cards with frogs on them advertising a variety of products. The oldest is dated 1880. Here are more of these cards.
"J. D. Larkin & Co's 'Elite' Toilet Soap. Quality, the finest made. A fine Handerchief in every 25c. box. Clay & Richmond, Buffalo, N.Y. Copyright J. D. Larkin & Co. Buffalo, NY 1882"
"Ayer's Ague Cure is warrented to cure Fever & Ague and all malarial disorders. Prepared by Dr. J.C. Ayer & Co Lowell, Mass"
"Sullivan's Black Diamond Combination is coming! Don't fail to see them in their New Version of Uncle Tom's Cabin."
"The Boat Race Henry L. Carter, Manufacturer and Dealer in Hats, Caps, Trunks and Umbrellas, 2163 Washington Street, Boston." This card is copyrighted in 1880, which is the oldest date I have logged so far.
"J. B. Fisher. Boots, Shoes & Rubbers, Keene, N.H."
"Clark's Mile-End Spool Cotton" This trade card also has a copyright date of 1880.
