World Soccer Promotions
114 cards

I enjoyed collecting this set in the early 1990s, even though cards were hard to come by in the UK, in the days before the internet and eBay. I was a little bit disappointed that the  back of the Billy Ronson didn't include any reference to his time at Cardiff City. 
The set featured clubs in the MISL - Major Indoor Soccer League, which was the major soccer competition in the United States following the demise of the NASL and prior to the formation of MSL.
There were two versions of the Pele promo card, one in English the other in Spanish and the latter cards is by far the rarest.
