Abdulla Flowers and the Garden Old Favourites (Flowers) 1936 Old Favourites (Flowers) 1936 25 - Titled Old Favourites the 25 cards contain lovely colour pictures of more traditional garden flowers and the numbered backs give information about the plants including uses and flowering times. Some of the beauties included are the Tulip, which flowers at this time of year, the Tritoma which is better known as the Red Hot Poker, the Sunflower whose oily seeds we are told are enjoyed by chickens, the Snapdragon, the scented Stock, Sweet William, Polyanthus which was formerly known as “bunch-primrose” we are told, the stunning Peony, spring-flowering Pansy and Daffodil, easy to grow Nasturtium, cottage garden favourites the Lupin and Hollyhock, purple Iris, the Foxglove which the card tells us is the source of the drug digitalis, the quickly spreading Forget-Me-Not, plus the stunning Dahlia and Chrysanthemum, the fragrant Cabbage Rose and the later flowering Aster which puts on a show in September and October. Incidentally the back of the Lupin card tells us it will grow in poor soil as it has the power of utilizing nitrogen from the air to enrich the ground in which it grows making it suitable for any garden. This series is also issued by G Phillips.

Players Animals & Wildlife Dogs Scenic backgrounds 1924 (C.C.S. reprint 1997) Dogs Scenic backgrounds 1924 (C.C.S. reprint 1997) 50 - Originally issued in 1924 this delightful set featuring lovely dog pictures was reprinted in 1997. The dogs are set within appropriate backgrounds and many of the cards contain more than one example of the breed. We love the pictures of the Bulldog guarding his bowl, Otterhounds paddling in the stream, the Labrador Retriever with a duck in its mouth or the Yorkshire Terrier next to his cushion. There is informative text on the reverse full of facts about the breed. A lovely set with cards size 68 x 36mm

Topps (USA) Films, TV, Sci Fi & Comic Art Stranger Things Season 1 (Netflix TV Show) 2018 Stranger Things Season 1 (Netflix TV Show) 2018 LT100 - These cards are based on the American Sci-Fi/Horror show streamed on Netflix in 2016 (later released on a DVD) and created by Matt and Ross Duffer. The show, which stars Winona Ryder as Joyce Byers and David Harbour as police chief Jim Hopper is set in 1983 and the cards are in a 1980s style, with colour pictures in a white border on the front and brown/grey numbered backs telling the story. The trouble begins when researchers at a lab in Hawkins open a rift to ‘upside down’ an alternate dimension, which allows a monster to escape and abduct Will Byers. His mother Joyce and police chief Jim search for him, but at the same time a psychokinetic girl called Eleven escapes the lab and teams up with Will’s friends to find him. The cards are size 89 x 64mm.
