Defunct Speedway Tracks


Card Set 17
Turf Cigarettes
A set of 50 cards but we only have 7 cards so far.  These cards were part of the cigarette pack and had to be cut from the packet.  Please email if you can help build up to a full set John
David Pipes says: These are all packets of 10 cigarettes. Presumably, if it was pay day or you were a heavy smoker then you could buy a packet of 20 cigarettes which contained two cards.  I can confirm that this “Sports Series” of cards only contained a total of 9 speedway riders, the remaining sports personalities being golfers, boxers, jockeys, tennis players, rugby players, cricketers and ice hockey players. Footballers were the subject of separate card series.
