Cardback collectors discussion

Post by Commander Clint on Mon Aug 01, 2016 7:24 pm

Thought I would start a thread where we can show & discuss vintage cardbacks.

Not sure if you can tell, but I'm a big fan of the Canadian cardbacks. lol!

I'm waiting on a couple new cardbacks to arrive in the post. When they do, I'll show the new ones that I've gotten over the last few months. nanny

So, lets see what you got. Very Happy

This is one of my latest additions.

It's a Kenner 48D (Two line version of heading) which has a Palitoy address label on the back so that the Nien Numb offer could be redeemed in the UK. The sticker on the front looks like one from a catalogue store chain called Argos.

Thanks Clint, the Palitoy stickered 48D's don't seem to turn up that often, so I was pleased to acquire a Stormie example for the focus. Very Happy

I am a cardback collector so thought I should show some of my current cards. I had alot more but sold them off the middle of last year.
I miss them but needed some money so other people can enjoy having them now!

Similar to Steve's Stormtrooper, here are two Kenner 48 nien nunb offer cards with the palitoy address label on back. There is also a Ben but the label has been removed. Delamare 1.39 is the price sticker.

Nicolas, that's another great Palitoy TFP cardback.  I love that it's a Dengar offer. clapping

I managed to pick these up last week.  All of them are Canadian 12A & B's backs.

Thanks Andy. cheers I didn't have very many of the 12 backs, but these will do nicely for now. Just like all the vintage stuff, the Canadian card backs are getting harder to find.
