Does anyone recognise these
« on: September 26, 2018, 12:12:12 AM »
I got these in a big box of cards I purchased at auction.

They look like packet issues but despite a good old trawl of both Ebay and the internet generally Im blowed if I can find them

As i know there are a few trade card collectors here,and I know one of you usually comes up trumps I'm rather hoping someone can enlighten me  :)

Thanks Jedi  I knew one of the members would know.

Loads of cards in the box,almost enough to complete my Sun footballers set,the one with 134 cards,having sorted through them yesterday I still need 23 of them so the hunt is on.



Also lots of DC Thomson cards,and a few 1950s Barratt cards so all in all not a bad buy despite the fact 50% of it was rubbish  :)
