Hill Miscellaneous Cigarette Cards Puzzle Series 1937 Puzzle Series 1937 50 - Hill's 50 Puzzle Series, issued in 1937. The title itself is a puzzle, because they subjects are nearly all magical tricks rather than puzzles and indeed when a second printing came out in 1938 it was re-titled "Magical Puzzles". The pictures illustrate the magician's stock in trade using string, coins, cards, matches, glasses, handkerchiefs etc., as props with a detailed explanation on the card backs so that, with a little practice and some sleight of hand, you too can amaze your friends! Size 69 x 36mm

Collectable Pictures Star Trek Star Trek (The Original) 2019 Star Trek (The Original) 2019 L8 - Having covered sporting themes before artist Norman Hood now turns his attention to science-fiction in a series of excellent glossy cartoon portraits of Star Trek characters from the original TV series first aired in the UK in 1969. We are introduced to Dr. McCoy, Captain James T. Kirk, First Officer Spock, Chief Engineer Scotty, Lt. Uhura, Lt. Sulu and Ensign Chekov. The backs contain the character’s backstory, but also gives details of the careers of the actual actors. For instance Chekov (Walter Koenig) is Russian in the series but was actually born in Illinois and Nichelle Nicholls (Lt. Uhura) was going to quit until she spoke to Martin Luther King who was a fan. The back of the title ells us more about the series created by Gene Roddenbury which has become such a cult-classic. A treat for any Trekkie with cards size 79 x 62mm
