Today's post features something, which I'm fairly confident in saying, hasn't been shown on any of the other card blogs before. And like my last post, these are from another nearly forgotten folder of scans.
I was completely unfamiliar with this set before I won them from a Sportlots auction a couple of months ago (under $4 for the seven in case anyone was wondering). There isn't a great deal of information regarding this set available via the internet, other than the year they came out, and that they were released in four series' of 25 cards each. I did find however, that they came in two different sizes, one being the standard tobacco card size (which mine are) and a slightly larger squared size which I assume was a premium -- in that you had to send in a certain amount of coupons/packages or a certain amount of the smaller cards to get one of the larger ones.
Since Sarony was a British cigarette manufacturer, it shouldn't come as too much of a surprise to see that the celebrities (and their autographs!) featured in this set are all of the British persuasion.
Since the backs scanned better than I though they would, I have included all of them here for those that would be so inclined to want to read them.
Thanks for taking a moment to look at my page.
