Rowntree & Co. - Instant Spot the Ball


1983
Instant Spot the Ball
Rowntree & Co.
78 cards known

The image on the front of the card seems to be a game involving Liverpool and Wolverhampton Wanderers. The backs of the cards show two panels of sporting scenes plus the name of a sportsman - mostly cricket and football with some golf and tennis too. Two lists, the first is a list of the known two-panel cards, the second is a list of all the footballers known to feature on the cards. The cards are unnumbered and are numbered here for reference purposes only.
UPDATE (13-04-2022 19:57):  John Borthwick has provided a list of 21 additional cards and one more footballer (Norman Hunter).

Kromel (Spain) - Campeonato Nacional de Liga Primera División 1951-52


1951-52
Campeonato Nacional de Liga Primera División 1951-52
Kromel
Spain
320 cards

This collection features all the games played during the first 10 weeks of the 1951-52 season. Each game includes 4 photo cards and a card describing the action, with team line-ups. So that's 240 photo cards and 80 text cards. Separate albums were produced for each of the 16 teams, to fill a complete set of albums requires two full sets of cards. Team names vary across the set of cards, I have usually gone with the first example of each team that I came across. For the first round of fixtures the first two cards from each of the games featured team photos. On another note, this is the only season that the Moroccan club Club Atlético Tetuán played in La Liga.

St. Petersburg Cigarettes Co. Ltd. - Company Information


St. Petersburg Cigarettes Co. Ltd. - Company Information

Yesterday, via the comments, I was asked if I knew anything about the St. Petersburg Cigarette Company who were based in Portsmouth and issued football cards some time around 1900. I must admit I knew nothing about this company but my wife Paula likes a challenge and this is what she has come up with so far. Three images of 88 High Street, Portsmouth are shown, where the company was founded by Mark Weiner. The drawing is from 1842 - 87 and 88 High Street is the building on the right. The impressive building to the left was a Post Office. The two photos are from 1910 and 1933. This part of the High Street was completely destroyed by enemy bombers during World War II. The fourth image is again from 1842 and shows 117 High Street which was a tobacconist shop at the time the cards were issued.
There are also two cuttings from the local Hampshire Telegraph newspaper and a timeline.
