John Levitt says: Hi John,  I am sending you some more caricature speedway cards that do not have an artist signature and have a plain back. Like the Mickey Durling Cards [Set 23] the issuer is not known and they appeared around the same time as his cards.
John Skinner says:  Whilst I was putting these blue and white cards on the website I decided that the artist must be Mickey Durling and when I put the very last blue and white card (Bob Mark) on this page it has been signed by Mickey Durling and further proof came when I compared the Bob Mark card in the Speedway Stars Mickey Durling card-set 23.  It was almost identical.  I have put the 2 cards side by side at the bottom of this page for comparison purposes.
