Cigarette Cards

Keen cartophiles will not need to be told that all sorts of images were to be found on cigarette cards in years gone by.  Football players were possibly the most popular but the range of subjects was enormous (see here).  Not only the Coat of Arms of Croydon but even the school cap of the Selhurst Grammar School for Boys found their way on to cigarette cards, as you can see by following the links from this page.

If you have any relevant examples, please send us images and we'll post them here.
