MCAE-2-4 Winners Against The Odds
J. John Masters & Co Ltd.
12 cards (3 Football)

A small set of matchbox labels highlighting some impressive sorting achievements. They were printed on the back/underside of the boxes. I know of 12 different ones and I think the checklist is complete, they are unnumbered and are numbered here for reference purposes only (in the order in which I discovered them). This is also an illustrated checklist of the football ones.

2.  Geordie Giantkillers (Sunderland - 1973 F.A. Cup Final)
3.  Those Magnificent Magyars (England 3 Hungary 6)
