Mabel drew a small boy called Mischief and children in the 1950s could join his club and get a free badge. In 1954 the company produced a set of cards titled Mischief Goes to Mars in which the fictional boy and his sister Marie accompany their uncle Jet Wright, a rocket ship pilot, on a trip to Mars, but not before stocking up with several cartons of Wright’s biscuits! The Mars they land on is full of helicopter like aircraft and friendly martians who are used to contact with Earth. After exploring this planet they return home with Mischief vowing to become a rocket pilot like his uncle. The story is explained on the numbered backs and at the bottom is an advert to “Join the Mischief Club. Send 2½d stamp and 6 pictures of Little Mischief” Two similar series were also produced, the only different being that one has “Issued by Wright’s Biscuits Ltd’ at the base and the other has the name at the side but not at the base. see website for availability A charming little set with Thunderbird style rockets. The cards are size 68 x 36mm.

Roy Rogers Gum A Special Offer of £2, £3 and £5 Sets Roy Rogers South of Caliente (plain back) 1955 Roy Rogers South of Caliente (plain back) 1955 M24 - Cowboy films were still all the rage in the early 1950s and these cards reproduce in black and white some of the action from the popular film Roy Rogers South of Caliente, but without any text on the back. Known as the “King of the Cowboys” American actor and singer Roy Rogers was actually born in the city as Leonard Franklin Slye, but changed his name to Roy Rogers when he got his first cowboy role. His character had a TV show of the same name between 1951 and 1957 and he appeared in many western films. Such was his popularity that the Roy Rogers name was used for all sorts of endorsements including these “Roy Rogers Gum” cards and even a restaurant chain. Roy was always the good guy who with his trusty horse Trigger, dog Bullet and a number of different sidekicks, defeated the baddies usually ending the show with a song. In this film he played a horse transporter hired by Doris (played by his real-life wife Dale Evans) to transport her prize racehorse. When the horse is stolen she suspects Roy, but in fact the baddie is one of her employees who is after her ranch. Needless to say Roy puts everything right after plenty of fights and action shots. This series was also produced under the name Times Confectionery but with text on the backs. Pure nostalgia from a time when good guys always wore white hats. Size 64 x 44mm

Cadbury-Schweppes Dinosaurs The Age of the Dinosaur 1971 The Age of the Dinosaur 1971 12 - These well produced colour cards depict twelve specimens of the huge creatures which roamed the earth millions of years ago. Among them are the Stegosaurus, Triceratops, Pteranodon, Tyrannosaurus, Iguadodon and Diplodocus. The backs are crammed with information, for instance we are told the Acanthopholis was protected by armoured plates and if attacked would lie flat on its stomach with its legs pulled in rather like a giant hedgehog or that the Doedicurus is a relative of the modern armadillo. All fascinating stuff and with excellent pictures – just a shame there aren’t more cards in the set!. An album was originally available to house these cards. Cards size 68 x 37mm.
