Cette image fait partie d'une très jolie collection contenue dans un bel album en vente chez votre fournisseur de chocolat.
which loosely translated says that "this card is one of a fine album set that can be purchased at your local chocolate retailer".
The 10 cards of this Nestlé set from 1936.
|It may be that this set only numbered 10 in all, or else there may be further cards out there, featuring more drivers and circuits of the 1930s. If I find any more I'll add them to this page. John dropped me a line after finding this page, he says that typically there would be 12 cards in a set, so I'll need to find the missing pair. He also says that the company ".. also released series in 1939 and 1940, which featured racing cars & land speed record cars". Thanks John.
|More cigarette, chocolate and general trading cards will be added to the card collecting section of the site shortly. More about collecting racing memorabilia can be found in the Motor Racing Collectables section.
