D.C. Thomson / The Victor - THO-660/THO-212 Star Teams of 1961

THO-660/THO-212 Star Teams of 1961
D.C. Thomson / The Victor

22 cards

The first six cards were included with The Victor comic in the issue dated 9 September, 1961, along with a special plastic wallet in which to collect the cards. Over the following four weeks a sheet made up of four cards was given free with the comic. Most boys cut them down to fit in the wallet, finding uncut sheets is becoming more and more difficult. I've shown all four sheets here.
