The Prominent Americans 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 Prominent Americans, 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.
