Perfetti Gum - International Stars (02)

International Stars
Perfetti Gum
20 Footballers

Back in May 2013 I posted a short piece relating to the above card that had been sent in by Mark Avenell. He didn't recognise the card and neither did I. Nigel Mercer has finally solved the problem and you can see all 20 football cards on his website - Monty Gum, International Stars, 1965/66. The complete set includes other sporting personalities as well as other subjects such as film stars.

UPDATE (07-04-2019 19:11):  This post was originally published as a Monty Gum issue but Carl Wilkes has confirmed that this collection of 100 International Stars (20 footballers, 12 stars of other sports and 68 film stars) was only issued by Perfetti Gum in Italy in 1967. Even though it looks like a Monty Gum set it was never issued by Monty Gum. I have now amended this post to reflect this new information. You can find the full Perfetti Gum checklist here - Perfetti Gum - International Stars (05).
