It is in five sections and gives up-to-date values for cards, silks and special albums in top condition.

It has reference numbers to cross reference with the British Tobacco Issues Handbook, Ogdens, G Phillips and Wills reference books giving information for British Tobacco series which will be a great help to collectors to identify cards especially unnumbered or untitled series. For the first time ever we have added the special albums issued for individual sets. We have also listed the scarce cards within some of the sets with their appropriate price.
