Popular Personalities cards



Carreras fine quality cigarettes produced a set of 72 cards entitled “Popular Personalities”.

These cards were unusual as they were oval in shape and featured photographs that appear to have been cut to shape, by hand. The two that I have are Tom Newman and Walter Lindrum. These cards are numbered 66 and 67, respectively.

I feel sure that other billiards exponents would have been included in this series but as yet, have not come across them.
