Sports Soccer Card Series
Excellent quality cards from this biscuit company. Made from
strong card they are 19 x 7.5cm. They do not mention Carr's on the
cards, only the words 'Sports Soccer card series'. I'm not sure how
they were issued. If you know anything more please email me
Perhaps they were not a success, perhaps too big or unusual for most
boys. It was also not clear what you did with them, stuck them in an
album or onto a wall chart? Despite the ongoing fortunes of Carr's,
they didn't venture into football cards again after this, which is
perhaps a pity.
These cards are now collectable, but only among the more discerning
collectors, including those who must have one of each of the players
for their favourite club. They don't come up for sale very often,
and when they do can fetch high prices if in excellent condition.
