Carreras Miscellaneous Cigarette Cards Notable MPs 1929 Notable MPs 1929 M50 - Living as we do in the world’s oldest democracy, the British people seem to enjoy a love/hate relationship with their members of parliament. Whether things were the same back in 1929, we don’t know, but Carreras series of 50 Notable MPs certainly included some controversial characters, not least of which was Winston Spencer Churchill, at that time Chancellor of the Exchequer who had already led a chequered career in and out of politics. Among Members locking horns with “Winnie” were three former Prime Ministers, David Lloyd George, Stanley Baldwin and Ramsay MacDonald and a Prime Minister to be, Neville Chamberlain, plus the first woman MP Nancy, Viscountess Astor, all under the gimlet gaze of the Speaker of the House, Captain Fitzroy. Terrific caricatures with excellent descriptions. Size 70 x 60mm

Topps (USA) Pop Stars & Singers New Kids on the Block 1st Series 1990 (Grey card USA Printing) New Kids on the Block 1st Series 1990 (Grey card USA Printing) LT88 - New Kids on the Block are a boy-band created by Maurice Starr which originally consisted of Donnie Wahlberg and younger brother Mark, Danny Wood, Jamie Kelly, Jordan Knight and brother Jonathan. Jamie Kelly left early on, as did Mark Wahlberg who has since had a successful acting career. Joey McIntyre was brought in as a replacement. Their debut album in 1986 failed and their next did not do well but by the 1990s the situation had changed. They became one of the most popular American acts and ‘Step by Step’ became a best selling single. Other hits followed including ‘Baby I Believe In You’ and the band toured extensively. Unfortunately following their huge popularity there was a bit of a backlash, not helped by allegations of lip-syncing which were subsequently withdrawn. By now however the band was in decline and they split in 1994. There is a happy ending however as they had a reunion in 2008 and have been performing together ever since. The orange bordered colour pictures depict the band member whilst the grey backs contain a mixture of vital statistics, quiz questions or facts. A 2nd Series and a set of LT11 stickers was also issued. Incidentally there is a UK series on the band but these are on white card rather than grey. Size 89 x 63mm\r\n
