Panini (USA) Films & Film Stars Post 1940 Disneys 101 Dalmatians plus its special album (stickers contained on 6 sheets in centre of album) 1996 Disneys 101 Dalmatians plus its special album (stickers contained on 6 sheets in centre of album) 1996 M66 - This sticker book, with sheets of stickers in the centre, contains action from the 1996 Disney classic 101 Dalmatians which was based on the 1956 novel by Dodie Smith. This comedy live action adventure tells the story of Roger and Anita who meet through their dogs and marry. Anita works in the fashion industry for the evil Cruella de Vil (played with relish by Glen Close). When their Dalmatians have puppies Cruella tries to buy them to make into a fur coat, but the couple refuse and so she arranges to have them stolen. With the help of intelligent dogs and the police the puppies are returned and Cruella arrested. The film ends with Roger making his fortune with a video game based on the adventures and the couple move to the country and adopt the other Dalmatian puppies taken by Cruella making 101 in total. Good fun and size 272 x 209mm

Players Miscellaneous Cigarette Cards Boy Scout and Girl Guide Patrol Signs and Emblems 1933 (C.C.S. reprint 2001) Boy Scout and Girl Guide Patrol Signs and Emblems 1933 (C.C.S. reprint 2001) 50 - Originally issued in 1933 these reprints from 2001 picture both the patrol sign or emblem and the actual creature or plant on which this is based. The first half of the set are all Boy Scout patrol signs including the Beaver, Curlew and Panther and the text on the back tells us about the creature as well as which badges this patrol should specialize in and their call. For instance members of Fox patrol have a call or bark of “Ha Ha” and should study woodcraft and the habits of wildlife. The remainder of the set are Girl Guide emblems which are all bird or plant related and include Swallow, Robin, Primrose and Poppy. As with the backs of the Boy Scout cards the creature or plant is described on the reverse, but instead of a call the patrol motto such as that for Chaffinch Patrol of “Play the game and play it well” is given. This is an excellent set with cards size 68 x 36mm.
