Cigarros Susini (Cuba) - (N230-3) Album Universal ~ Sports

1300 cards (50 sports, 3 football)

A became a little obsessed by this collection recently. I have shown the 3 football cards larger than the other cards. Some, if not all, can be found as sepia and colourized (by hand). I was curious to know what other cards are featured in the 'Sports' subset. With that in mind, I've added illustrations of all the other cards I could find. I don't have card numbers for many of them, so I've indicated in blue where each card features in the illustrations above. The captions on the cards are in Spanish and I've been unable to read many of them so I've just listed them by the sport shown.

42 cards are listed so far, though I don't know the actual numbers of the two cards listed at 230 and 231. There are three cards missing from the checklist.
UPDATE (11-04-2019 23:49):  It's always a great pleasure to complete a checklist and when it's a really old checklist like this one then it's all the greater. Fran has provided details for the three missing numbers and has provided some additional amendments and updates, including a couple that would interest collectors of University Boat Race ephemera. The numbers added or amended are 229, 231 and 233 to 236. Fran has also provided scans of the three cards missing from the illustrations - 229, 231 and 235.
