Cartledge Boxing Famous Prize Fighters 1938 Famous Prize Fighters 1938 50 - What could be a more appropriate subject than boxing for a card series by the makers of ‘Knock-Out’ razor blades? That is precisely what the well-known Sheffield firm of F.C. Cartledge Ltd. had in mind when they issued their series of fifty Famous Prize Fighters. In recent years this has become a classic among collectors and has become quite scarce. It covers the sport in considerable depth, from the bare-knuckle champs of the 18th century like John Broughton and Tom Cribb through to the great names of the 1930s such as Jack Dempsey, Tommy Farr and Joe Louis. The pictures are either black and white drawings or matt photographs with first class text on the backs. This set contains the scarce No. 23, but in addition was available as a part set of 49 out of 50 (minus No. 23)– please check our website for availability. In 1939 two cards were issued featuring Eric Boon and Arthur Danahar, but confusingly these were numbered 13 and 19 so perhaps were intended to replace those numbers in the set. These are a must for any boxing fan. Size 67 x 35mm

Primrose Amazing Black Friday to Cyber Monday Deals Popeye 3rd Series 1961 Popeye 3rd Series 1961 50 - This is sure to bring back memories as it features cartoon character Popeye the famous sailor and pipe smoking man who acquires legendary strength when he consumes spinach. These brightly coloured cartoons show Popeye and family in a variety of situations with a comedy caption underneath such as the card showing Popeye in a café captioned “The coffee tastes like mud?” “Not surprising it was only ground this morning!”. Our favourite has to be the one of Popeye and child in a gallery looking at a statue without hands which is captioned “See what happings if ya bites yer fingernails!”. The backs contains adverts for Primrose sweets including their Penny Bars and “try more Primrose Popeye Sweet for scrumptious fun” as well as a Popeye picture card album which you could send away for to house your cards. Primrose also produced a 1st, 2nd and 4th series of Popeye cards with different subjects, but in similar format. These cards are size 67 x 33mm.
