Mitchell Reprinted Series First Aid 1938 (C.C.S. reprint 2001) First Aid 1938 (C.C.S. reprint 2001) 50 - These monochrome cards with informative backs, originally issued in 1928, were designed to be stored in a medicine chest where we are told they would prove invaluable in the case of an emergency. The cards take us through basics such as equipment for a first aid kid and how to tie various slings and bandages, but then get\\\\r\\\\nserious as we are shown an x-ray of a fracture and encouraged to use household items including golf clubs, umbrellas and broom handles as splints. We are advised not to move the patient until the splint is secured, but frankly I would have thought it ambitious to move a patient with a fractured thigh or kneecap no matter how well splinted. We then learn how to approach an electric shock victim, treat choking, scalds, remove foreign bodies from ears and eyes, remove fish hooks from hands and what to use as antidotes to common poisons, then he last card graphically shows a lady on fire. A useful but somewhat scary set! Size 68 x 36mm.

Players Reprinted Series History of Navel Dress 1930 (C.C.S. reprint 2001) History of Navel Dress 1930 (C.C.S. reprint 2001) 50 - This colourful set, as the title suggests, features sailors apparel from a 10th century Saxon Buscarle right up to a Chief Engineer of 1879. Included is a seaman’s arctic kit from 1602 recorded as being worn while searching for the North West Passage, the wide canvas breeches of the seaman of 1690, the full skirted coat of an Admiral of 1748, the costume of a gunner of 1750 taken from an inventory of effects, a ship’s caulker of 1790 who unusually wears trousers and a ship’s cook with a wooden leg. The informative text on the reverse tells us that the navy were encouraged to recruit cooks from those who had been maimed. The card for the Seaman of 1805 shows him wearing striped blue trousers and sporting a pigtail which we are told was popular between 1785 and 1823. By 1854 during the war in the Crimea we are told seamen of the Naval Brigade usually wore a Scottish style cap such as a Glengarry or Kilmarnock. A colourful set backed by interesting information. Size 68 x 36mm.

Dart (USA) Miscellaneous Trade Cards Pepsi Around the Globe 2000 Pepsi Around the Globe 2000 LT72 - The cards show how the product is promoted around the world including Argentina, Australia, India, Russia and Japan. The fronts also contain a small flag from the relevant country whilst the backs give interesting information. For example the card for Cambodia explains that the drink was first introduced at a trade exhibit, we are told the 1940’s Dominican Republic paper label (card no. 11) is now much sought after by collectors and that in Mexico in 1965 the world’s largest sign was erected spelling out the name Pepsi. Apparently the Ethiopian advert showed a lion drinking the beverage, whilst in Egypt it was thirsty camel drivers. Also worth a mention is the Italian card showing Pepsi being delivered by gondola. Size 89 x 64mm

Unstoppable Cards Films, TV, Sci Fi & Comic Art Stingray 2017 Stingray 2017 LT54 - Anyone growing up in the 1960s will remember Stingray the marvellous submarine piloted by Capt. Troy Tempest. This was another TV series produced by the Andersons using supermarionation. It was the first where the characters had interchangeable heads to allow a variety of expressions and was also one of the first British TV series to be filmed entirely in colour. Tempest, who was modelled on James Garner, works for the World Aquanaut Security Patrol an organisation based in Marineville in the year 2065. Their enemies include the Aquaphibians ruled by King Titan. He had a mute, underwater-breathing servant Marina but after assisting the Stingray crew to escape his clutches she becomes part of the Stingray team. The underwater scenes used a dry set with the camera filming through a narrow water tank which contained air bubblers and fish. Surface scenes used a large tank of blue dyed water. The first 40 cards are action shots from the programme with text about the episode on the back and a different mini picture, then there are 9 cards containing close ups of the characters, Marineville and Stingray with different pictures on the back, followed by 3 ‘behind the Scenes’ cards with pictures on the reverse. Size 88 x 63mm.

Although there are 10 different cards you had to collect two of some of them to make the word. They deliberately made the letter Z hard to get and hence this is a part set of 9 not 10. The competition ended in March 2000 and the lucky prize winners won a complete set of Twilight Zone Premiere Edition Autograph cards. Size 89 x 64
