Mister Softee Football 1st Division Football League Club Badges 1972 1st Division Football League Club Badges 1972 M24 - As the title suggests these hexagonal cards feature the club badges of teams from the 1st Division in the 1971/72 season. Football fans might be wondering at this stage why there are 24 cards in this set when there were only 22 teams in the division and the answer is that the other two cards feature the badges of the English and Welsh national sides. Presumably this had to be a set of 24 so they needed to add these two cards. That season Derby topped the league with Leeds United, Liverpool, Manchester City and Arsenal also in the top 5. Bringing up the rear, so to speak, were Nottingham Forest and Huddersfield who were firmly in the relegation zone. The cards, size 63 x 55mm, contain information about the badge on the reverse. For instance we are told that the fox head on the Leicester City badge illustrates the area’s traditional hunting links and that the Chelsea crest was designed in 1953 and is taken from the arms of the Earl of Cadogan a president of the club.

Lyons Miscellaneous Trade Cards Australia 1959 Australia 1959 48 - The cards in this set were originally given away free with Lyons Tea and it must have been delightful on a cold, wet, winter morning to open a new packet and discover and exotic creature or sunny landscape from a place most people could only dream of going to. The colour pictures include the capital Canberra and national flag as well as city buildings, but then it branches out (excuse the pun!) into the amazing flora and fauna of the region. Some of the world’s most recognised wildlife makes its home in Australia such as the Platypus, Kookaburra, Emu, Kangaroo, Wombat and Koala and they can all be found in this set. The set then shows how Australians live with a look at farming, mining and pearl fishing as well as aspects of Aboriginal life including their art and hunting skills, but the last card shows the country is looking firmly into the future as it pictures the Woomera Rocket Range, which is in the desert 250 miles north-west of Adelaide. There is plenty of information on the numbered backs including many facts which are likely to make you go “well I never knew that!”, for instance did you know that Poinsettias, popular here at Christmas, are practically the city flower of Brisbane, but although they flourish in the region they actually came from Mexico? A lovely look at a fascinating country. Size 68 x 36mm.

Details of design, equipment and performance include topical data such as the Swift jet fighter being in “super-priority” production for the R A F and having flown from Brussels to London on 10th July 1952 in 18 minutes, and the De Havilland 110 having broken the sound barrier on 9th April 1952, piloted by the late John Derry.

Siddle and show the wonderful markings so prized by owners of these fish. Perhaps the most striking is the Shusui on the last card which has dark blue scales along the ridge of the back.

Just as pedigree dogs have to have certain shaped heads or markings etc. so to be a champion koi carp the patterns must be in the right colours and in the right places and we are advised on the back of the Taisho Sanke card that black stripes sometimes appear in the pectoral fins, but should not exceed two or three stripes or that a Tancho should only have a round red mark on its head which must not extend over the eye or lips.

Carreras Miscellaneous Cigarette Cards Do You Know 1939 Do You Know 1939 50 - No fewer than seven out of the fifty cards in Do You Know? by Carreras were concerned with Army or Navy matters. Perhaps the compiler had a military background, or was it because the series was produced in 1939 just before war broke out? We will never know the answer to that one. Having said that, this is an extremely well-produced series with excellent illustrations and factual texts covering topics as diverse as the origin of bowler hats, sandwiches, ‘bobbies’, hallmarks, beefeaters, saluting, the sailor’s collar and horse-shoes for luck – plus some teasers like how much the value of the contents of the British Museum are insured for (answer : nothing), the history behind women wearing wedding rings (originally round the neck so she could be tethered as ‘property’) and how the length of a yard was determined (by Henry I, the distance from the point of his nose to the end of his thumb). Not a lot of people know that! Size 68 x 36mm

Carreras Miscellaneous Cigarette Cards Gran Pop by Lawson Wood 1934 Gran Pop by Lawson Wood 1934 50 - Produced by Carreras in 1934 it is a series of 50 cards featuring ‘Gran-Pop’, a cartoon ape, in humorous colour drawings by the English painter and illustrator Lawson Wood. As well as appearing on cards the ‘Gran-Pop’ character also appeared in a series of annuals that were sold round the world. Lawson Wood was very much concerned with animal welfare and as well as being a member of the Royal Zoological Society he also founded a sanctuary for old animals, but the apes and other animals in his drawings find themselves in very human situations with suitably humorous captions. The card backs contain sepia photos and text showing the manufacture of cigarettes including an illustration of the Arcadia Works of Carreras Ltd in Hampstead Road, London where we are told “happy, healthy work people make good cigarettes with care, pride and conscience under the most hygienic manufacturing conditions”.

Among the beauties flaunting their physical talents are a few Hollywood actresses such as Hedy Lamarr, Anita Louise, Merle Oberon and Sonja Henie with their studio (Paramount, Warner Bros. Or 20th Century Fox noted on the card backs), but most would appear to be stage artistes - and not the theatrical type either, judging by where they could be seen (six of them at the Hollywood Restaurant, five at Rose's Casa Manana, with others at such venues as the Paradise Restaurant and the International Casino). Many bear a credit to Murray Korman. Size 68 x 36mm

Carreras Military - General Series Britains Defences 1938 Britains Defences 1938 50 - On 30th September 1938 British Prime Minister Nevill Chamberlain returned from Munich to a tumultuous welcome with a document signed by Hitler say that we “bring peace with honour”. This was the same month that Carreras issued their series of 50 Britain’s Defences which includes many aspects of the operation of all three services. No doubt the Government made sure that our preparedness was put in the best light with emphasis on the most modern equipment – much of which was then in woefully short supply – without giving away any secrets to a potential enemy. The cards are exceptionally well-produced with excellent colour pictures backed by highly informative texts. Even today when we look back at this kind of set we can sense the unease about what the immediate future held in store. Fortunately, certain “ultra-modern developments” not included in the series were to tip the balance of war in our favour. These are well worth adding to any collection. Size 68 x 36mm.
