A set of 50 cards but we only have 7 cards
so far. These cards were part of the cigarette pack and had
to be cut from the packet. Please email if you can help
build up to a full set
David Pipes says: These are all packets of 10 cigarettes.
Presumably, if it was pay day or you were a heavy smoker then
you could buy a packet of 20 cigarettes which contained two
cards.I can confirm that this “Sports Series” of cards only
contained a total of 9 speedway riders, the remaining sports
personalities being golfers, boxers, jockeys, tennis players,
rugby players, cricketers and ice hockey players. Footballers
were the subject of separate card series.

With help from David Pipes we now have a complete set of Turf
Speedway Cards (9 cards) the other cards in this series of 50
feature other sportsmen.
