(DAI-260) Sports Parade
Daily Mail
24 cards

The cards feature drawings by Eric Thompson. These are very rare cards and I have to thank Harry Richards for providing much of the information in this checklist. They are often shown as being issued in 1954 but as this Bert Trautmann mentions his appearance in the 1955 F.A. Cup Final, the earliest year of issue must be 1955.
