Ardath Tobacco (State Express 333 Cigarettes/Ardath Cork Cigarettes) - (A72-39B) Sports Champions


(A72-39B) Sports Champions
Ardath Tobacco
UK & New Zealand
50 cards (6 footballers)

The U.K. version is the one where the title is printed in one line on the back of the card and was issued with State Express 333 cigarettes, with the other version being issued in New Zealand. I'd like to say a big 'thank you' to Roger Pashby, as his Huddersfield Town website was the only place I could find good illustrations of cards from this set.
UPDATE (21-08-2022 12:48):  Glyn Roberts has kindly provided a complete list of all the cards in this collection to supplement my original list of footballers.
