Blue Cap Cheese - BLU-240-3c/BLZ-1-3-3 Flixies ~ Football Teams

BLU-240-3c/BLZ-1-3-3 Flixies ~ Football Teams
Blue Cap Cheese

These were issued in the 1950's, listed in the catalogues as 1959 but they are sometimes listed as 1952 or 1953. The Cardiff City player has a badge on his shirt and the club only used a badge on their shirt during this period, in the 1958-59 and 1959-60 seasons. These acetates were created to be used in a viewer that could project the image greatly enlarged onto a wall. There are 144 'flixies' issued in total with the Football Clubs sub-set being one of 12 covering a wide range of subjects. Special albums with corner slots were issued to hold these small items that measure just 37mm x 35mm.
