Godfrey Phillips Ltd. ~ Sports Cigarettes
These can be collected in three ways: as individual paper cards trimmed to the back of the packet and therefore anonymous or as complete packets that have been opened and laid flat. Two different packets were produced - 5s and 10s. Over the next couple of days I'll be including all the different Sports collections issued between 1948 and 1954 and some of these will include illustrations of complete sheets. Unfortunately I don't have one to show from this set. I'd like to thank Carl at www.rarecards.co.uk for allowing me to use some illustrations from his website, which is an amazing source of rare football cards.
