Churchman Reprinted Series Story of Navigation 1936 (CCS reprint 1999) Story of Navigation 1936 (CCS reprint 1999) 50 - When Queen Mary launched the new Cunard liner which bore her name in September 1934 it was like a tonic for a nation emerging from the long years of the depression. The superb vessel marked the latest chapter in a struggle to conquer the sea, a story which had begun thousands of years earlier when primitive man first crossed a river by floating on a log. It was these two extremes which Churchmans chose for the first and last cards in this series. The set continues with a Welsh coracle, a Viking ship and an Elizabethan galleon as well as Nelson’s flagship “Victory” which is now preserved at Portsmouth for all to admire. Also included are the magnificent clipper “Cutty Sark” which is still a major tourist attraction at Greenwich, “S.S. Great Britain” which is permanently on display in Bristol as a lasting tribute to Isambard Kingdom Brunel her talented designer plus great liners of the 20th century such as “Mauretania” which for more than 20 years was the speed queen of the North Atlantic and of course, the “Queen Mary” which is now a tourist attraction at Long Beach, California. You can re-live these great moments in maritime history with this finely produced colour series with plenty of facts on the reverse. These cards are size 67 x 36mm. This set was originally printed in 1936.

Topps (USA) Films, TV, Sci Fi & Comic Art Superman Returns The Film 2007 Superman Returns The Film 2007 LT90 - Christopher Reeve must have been a hard act to follow in the role, but alas he is no longer with us. Still his less macho successor does a good job in Superman Returns, as does the new Lois Lane. These two are prominent among the character cards which begin the series by Topps, and are followed by 69 shots from the film with the story, plus a different mini-picture on the backs. Two ‘behind the scenes’ cards reveal some of the clever parts. Size 90 x 64mm.
