Thunderbirds 2nd Series 1967
Barratt Films, TV, Sci Fi & Comic Art Thunderbirds 2nd Series 1967 Thunderbirds 2nd Series 1967 50 - Gerry Anderson’s “Thunderbirds” exploded onto our monochrome television screens in 1965 to resounding applause and rapidly became part of popular culture. The programme makers exploited its success by licensing all kinds of products to use the brand name, one of which was confectionery, hence Barratt’s “Thunderbirds” sweet cigarettes. These sweets contained cards based on the TV show, the first series of which was issued in 1966 and this series which was issued in 1967. This 2nd Series of cards contains colour photographs from the original TV show and the backs are full of facts about the fictional Tracy family and their friends who run an international rescue organisation from their secret island home. These cards are highly collectable as cult memorabilia far beyond the card collecting hobby so don’t miss your chance to get this attractive set. Cards size 65 x 35mm.
