Senior Service cards



Senior Service Cigarette Cards.

I have four larger photo cards of and one is a little known snooker personality called Joe Davies. As we all know the correct spelling is Joe Davis, the spelling on the card, both front and rear is in error.

These cards were produced by Senior Service to mark famous sporting events and stars. The full set is 96; it seems a pity that a hundred could not be found.

I am unsure which snooker and billiards personalities featured but like the set, as they are a little larger than other cigarette card sets. This series appeared in 1939 and probably provided a little light relief during the war years.
