The Artists, Writers, and Poets cigarette card set contains 12 cards, all of which can be found around the world in Red Dead Redemption 2. Collecting a complete set allows players to sell it to Phineas T. Ramsbottom for a reward, though the trouble is actually finding them.
Be sure to check out our guide on all cigarette card locations so you can find and complete the other sets to sell to Phineas T. Ramsbottom.
Before being able to find all the Artists, Writers, and Poets, players must first talk with Phineas T. Ramsbottom at the Flatneck Station in New Hanover. Speaking with Phineas begins the mission, Smoking and Other Hobbies, which spawns a few of the cards around the map.
All Artists, Writers, and Poets Cigarette Cards
The Artists, Writers, and Poets cigarette cards are scattered all across the map in Red Dead Redemption 2, even down in Blackwater. Because of this, it is advised that players wait until Blackwater is accessible before attempting to complete the set. The reward for completing the Artists, Writers, and Poets collection is Ginseng Elixir and $100.
