  1. LACA also produced a similar series (for the 1996 Olympics IIRC). The only one I can remember is Linford Christie.

    Up until now I had no idea these cards were distributed nationally. Ah well, didn't know much outside Sheffield when I was 5 or 6.


Please feel free to leave a comment, though it will not appear straight away, as I will need to authorize it.
