Carreras (Turf Cigarettes) - Footballers



1948

Footballers
Carreras (Turf Cigarettes)
50

Very few cigarette cards were produced after the end of World War II. There was a major paper shortage and one company in particular got around this process by printing cards on the slides of cigarette packets. This series of Footballers can be found in four different formats - cut to single cards, cut to double cards and the complete slides from packets of 10 and 20 cigarettes. I've compiled this checklist in pairs as they can be found.
