Events of Red Dead Redemption 2

Phineas can be found sitting on a bench outside of Flatneck Station, smoking beside an open box. He calls the player over and explains to them that he has a hobby of collecting Cigarette Cards: cards either found in cigarette packs or around the in-game world, which become very valuable once a set is completed.

He asks the player to search for these cards, and if they complete a collection, they should mail them to Phineas for a cash reward.
