  1. Stiman of Chesterfield should read Sliman.
    W John of Stoke should read W R John Stoke City
    G Shaw of West Bromwich albion should read G E Shaw

  2. I have recently aquired an oh boy vending machine from the 1930's that might have included these cards inside them.

    1. Sounds fascinating. The cards were redeemed for 5 wrappers but I expect the vending machine is the source of the packets of gum.

  3. Love these cards. If anybody reading this has any of the Coventry cards from this Oh Boy Gum set and is willing to sell, please email me at
