Carreras Miscellaneous Cigarette Cards Famous Escapes 1926 Famous Escapes 1926 L25 - Of the incidents graphically depicted on these cards no fewer than three are devoted to the daring escapes of the resourceful thief Jack Sheppard from Newgate Prison. Among other celebrated ‘disappearing acts’ are those of Bonny Prince Charlie after Culloden, Mary Queen of Scots from Loch Leven Castle, King Charles after the Battle of Worcester, a mass breakout by 28 prisoners who tunnelled their way our of a Paris prison, William Tell, Napoleon III and Lady Arabella Stuart, wife of William Seymour, who escaped from house-arrest after being detained owing to a possible claim to the throne of England. Probably the most famous of all is Winston Churchill gaining his freedom from a Boer prison by scaling the wall and hitching a ride beneath sacks of wool on a goods train. (Note the nature of the glaze-coating on these cards means that they are slightly concave). Size 82 x 63mm

J.F.Sporting Collectibles Football Famous Footballers 1896-97 1st Series 1998 Famous Footballers 1896-97 1st Series 1998 M40 - This set consists of players from the 1896-97 season. The black bordered, black and white photos are remarkably clear for their age and I love the one of Freddie Wheldon of Small Heath who appears to be sitting on a kitchen chair! Freddie was capped 4 times for England in addition to being a cricketer for Worcestershire so was doubtless in need of a sit down. Arsenal’s Henry Boyd by contrast was obviously pictured in a studio as he is posing on a rock with plants in the background. Also included are Arsenal goalie Harry Storer who played cricket for Derbyshire, Aston Villa’s John Devey (who also played cricket for Warwickshire) and Charlie Athersmith who surely wins the prize for longest shorts, Welsh International and Bolton Wanderers full back Di Jones, Millwall’s Joe Gettins, Sheffield United’s William Foulke who was also a Derbyshire cricketer, Tom Crawshaw of Sheffield Wednesday who had 10 England caps and West Brom’s centre-half Charles Perry. The numbered backs give brief career details. Size 80 x 55mm

Unstoppable Cards Films, TV, Sci Fi & Comic Art Captain Scarlet and the Mysterons 50 Years 2018 Captain Scarlet and the Mysterons 50 Years 2018 LT36 - Unstoppable Cards have already produced produced a set on Gerry Andersons show Captain Scarlet, but this new set celebrates 50 years since the series was last aired in May 1968. The show again featured Gerry and Sylvia Anderson’s supermarionation, but this time the puppets were more life-like and the show was darker. The hero was Captain Scarlet who with fellow agents of Spectrum, who were also all named after colours, defends the Earth against mysterious aliens from Mars known as the Mysterons. These aliens had the ability to take control of people and they already have Spectrum agent Captain Black in their power. This set pictures action shots from the show, together with a couple of behind the scenes cards and a checklist. The numbered backs feature a different picture and brief text. Wallow in nostalgia with this set size 88 x 64mm
