Wills Dogs and Pets Pond and Aquarium 1st Series 1950 Pond and Aquarium 1st Series 1950 25 - This set was printed shortly after the war and kept ready to be released at a moment’s notice if a rival manufacturer suddenly started producing cards, but these were never actually issued. The superb artwork compliments the amazingly comprehensive texts which tells us everything we need to succeed from how to construct a pond or what type of tank you need for tropical fish to types of fish, diseases, insects and plants. A second series on the same subject was also produced around the same time. The detail in these pictures is amazing, particularly the Water Crowfoot card which shows the plants above and the fern-like roots below and the close-ups of the fish. A lovely set with cards size 66 x 36mm.

Prescott Confectionery Motoring Speed Kings 1966 Speed Kings 1966 L36 - This set is billed as the “thrills and spills of speed kings” and there are plenty of card featuring illustrations of cars crashing, catching fire etc., but as if that were not enough the set also includes the ‘new Bluebird jet’ (1966), the ‘Avenger’ which Paula Murphy used to set a new woman’s land speed record, the ‘Spirit of America’ and ‘Bluebird which broke land speed records and the ‘Whispering Ghost’ a Rover gas turbine car which took part in the 1965 Le Mans 24-hour race. What really sets this apart is the inclusion of artists impressions of future vehicles such as rocket looking dragsters, a police car of 2066 and an automated car. Automated cars are of course already in production, but we have to say they look quite boring compared to the example show on card 16 with its nose cone and huge glass panel, indeed if the actual cars looked more like this everyone would be clamouring to have one! A fascinating set, complete with checklist, which is backed by plenty of interesting snippits. Size 77 x 57mm.

De Beukelaer Sports Miscellaneous All Sports 1932 All Sports 1932 K100 - The cards may be tiny, but there are plenty of them!

Sir M Campbell and Mrs E.M. Scott, tennis players Miss B Nuttall and Fred Perry, cricketers J. Hobbs and H. Larwood, rugby stars B.C. Gadney and K.C. Fyfe and footballers E. Hapgood and W.R. ‘Dixie’ Dean. Their names and the card number are given under the picture and the card backs are blank.
