Produced by the Courier Co. during the 1890s, this portrait captures Buffalo Bill in a striking pose, along with a facsimile autograph.

Arcade Card Picturing Buffalo Bill (Unknown Date)

Rounding out the collection is an arcade card featuring Buffalo Bill as “The Crack Shot of the Plains.”

Manufactured by Ex. Sup. Co. of Chicago and labeled as “Made in USA,” this card serves as a vivid depiction of Buffalo Bill’s legendary marksmanship and frontier prowess.
