From around 1910 foreign cigarettes were imported into Siam
(Thailand). Competition was strong so suppliers introduced
trading cards to promote their brands. Cards were designed
in Thailand and manufactured overseas. Trading cards
declined from 1941 when the government of Thailand
introduced its monopoly over tobacco.
