Tobler Chocolate - Famous Footballers (3)



1939
Famous Footballers
Tobler Chocolate/Chocolat Tobler

I have had a couple of e-mails from Mark Hughesdon.

I was delighted to discover your site this afternoon and having spent far too long browsing through the various galleries and checklists I’ve found a couple of cards from my collection that will hopefully add to your knowledge.

As you can probably tell I’m a Luton collector, if I can help in any way in the future please don’t hesitate to ask, I look forward to seeing your site develop.

He sent the above photo from the Chocolat Tobler series. He then got in touch again with some additional information...

Please feel free to use my email/images on this and any future occasion, it’s all about sharing the knowledge.

I’ve dug out the catalogue from when I purchased the Chocolate Tobler card and the following were also available at the time although it doesn’t state if they were with or without branding on the front;

2.   S. Crooks (Derby)
10.  B. Nieuwenhuys (Liverpool)
11.  B. Sprotson (Man City)
17.  G.R. Mills (Chelsea)
45.  E. O'Callaghan (Fulham)


It's always great to discover new details for sets like these. I've reprinted the charts from the previous post and added this new information.

It certainly looks as if all the cards that also appear in the R.& J. Hill set, don't have Tobler Chocolate printed on the front of the card.
