Brooke Bond - Play Better Soccer (02) - Great New Series
Play Better Soccer ~ Great New Series card
John Levitt has sent in the above scan of a card linked to this collection...
Regarding the cards issued with Roy of the Rovers (16 October, 1976), was there a special card issued with them?
I have found the attached card which is plain backed (brown card) which refers to three sample picture cards. The
London Cigarette Card Co. catalogue refers to the "Great New Series" insert but does not mention where it came from. I don't have a copy of the Brooke Bond book they issued in 2006-7 and it is not mentioned in the previous book that was issued covering the first 40 years.
The cover states that as well as receiving the three cards collectors can find out how to get the album. This card certainly fits the bill. What would seal it is if the comic doesn't include any information in it's pages on how to get the album. I think more research is needed.
