Card Set 28
 
Aston Cards

Wimbledon
Speedway Stars
1929-1939
 
This card set was sent to me by John Levitt.  A full set of 24 cards featuring Wimbledon riders from the early years of British Speedway.
 

John Levitt says: - First a brief description of the make-up of each set. Most of the sets consist of 24 cards although there is one of 21 cards and another of 25. You already have images of the 1st Wembley set which consists of 15 cards.  The cards are 64mm x 90mm in size and produced on what appears to be thick photographic type paper as opposed to card.

The first set is Aston cards Wimbledon Speedway Stars 1929-1939 and note that the back of the cards contain very little text concerning the rider, most of the back is advertising Wimbledon Speedway in 2002. The listing is as follows:-
