Players Military & Armed Forces Regimental Standards and Cap Badges 1930 Regimental Standards and Cap Badges 1930 50 - The attractive cards feature the regimental colours and cap badges of British regiments and are backed with comprehensive text on the reverse. Included are the Durham Light Infantry who had 37 battalions during the Great War and who’s cap badge is a bugle, the Gordon Highlanders nicknamed the “Gay Gordons” who march to the air of ‘Highland Laddie’ and the Leicestershire regiment who have a tiger on their badge honouring their service in India. Sadly many of these units are no more as they have merged in subsequent cost-cutting measures. Card size 68 x 36mm. , This original set was produced in 1930 but was also reprinted in 1993 and 1997.

Players Miscellaneous Cigarette Cards Cycling 1939 Cycling 1939 50 - Issued in 1939 with the assistance of the editor of “Cycling” magazine, the sequence begins with the Hobby-Horse, the bicycle’s pedal-free forerunner propelled by feet on the ground, through to modern in-door races on light-weight machines. Each technical advance is chronicled along the way, matched by superb illustrations which not only show how bicycles (and tricycles and tandems) have progressed over the years but also how fashions have changed. I cannot recommend this series more highly it is a credit to those who compiled it and it should be in your collection. Size 68 x 36mm

Players Dogs and Pets Dogs Heads by Biegel 1955 Dogs Heads by Biegel 1955 50 - Although the issuing of cigarette cards did not start up again on a large scale after World War II the major tobacco companies commissioned several new series which they kept in reserve in case the opposition resumed issuing them. One of the subjects chosen by Players for this purpose was Dogs Heads by the artist Peter Biegel. The advantages of such a series are apparent – dogs are popular, appeal to men and women and they do not date so that the cards could be released after being stored for years with no one the wiser. Apart from his name Biegel was a wise choice because his colour portraits of these fifty breeds seem faithfully to capture each individual’s personality. Among the breeds portrayed are the Yorkshire Terrier, English Springer Spaniel, Cocker Spaniel, Old English Sheepdog, Irish Setter, Yellow Labrador, Golden Retriever, Pug, Poodle, Pekingese and Dachshund. The backs are full of information about the breed, for example the card for the Alsatian tells us that their strong and intelligent personalities “were used to great effect in the Second World War when they were employed for such diverse purposes as guard duties and mine detecting”. A fabulous canine set with cards 66 x 36
