D.C. Thomson / Adventure - THO-270 / ZJ5-33 The Mysto Mind-Reader ~ Football Mystery Cards


1929
THO-270 / ZJ5-33  The Mysto Mind-Reader ~ Football Mystery Cards
D.C. Thomson / Adventure
10 cards

These cards were given free with issue 380 of Adventure which was dated 9 February, 1929. To play the game you also need that issue of the comic as the editor had listed all 100 players in batches of ten that did not match the lists on the cards. I still don't know how the whole thing works!!!
I've numbered the cards here for reference purposes only, the card backs are blank, though the editor did suggest pasting the lists in the comic onto the backs of the cards, though I've never found any where this has been done.

UPDATE:
Bob Thomas has kindly sent in scans of the Rules card that I've now added.
