Renata Galasso is a well-known name in the world of cigarette card reprints. In 1983, she gained recognition for her notable collection of reprints that captured the nostalgia of vintage cigarette cards including a set of early baseball players.

Her work allowed enthusiasts to enjoy the beauty and historical significance of these cards without the need to acquire the rare originals.
