Daily Telegraph - A Year of Great British Sport

A Year of Great British Sport
Daily Telegraph
10 stickers (1 football)

John Levitt has provided information and images relating to this collection. This information comes from  the "What's new on cards" section in the London Cigarette Card Company's magazine Cigarette Card News issue dated November 1993 - Volume 55, Number 590.

Issued recently on consecutive days with the "Daily Telegraph" newspaper for collection from newsagents, were seven untitled colour pictures (120 x 90 mm) featuring British sporting achievements during the previous twelve months. On the backs is printed "not for sale, free as part of a year of Great British Sport wallchart collection with The Daily Telegraph". Subjects are Tennis (Jeremy Bates), Motor Racing (Nigel Mansell), Boxing (Lenox Lewis - sic), Yachting (British Steel Challenge), Rugby (Wales), Football (David Platt), Cricket (Alec Stewart). The giant wallchart has places and descriptions for these seven, plus three others printed on the chart - Golf (Nick Faldo), Athletics (Sally Gunnell) and Horse Racing (Party Politics).
John believes the picture of David Platt shows him playing against San Marino.
