Players Ciggy Cards

Post by cweed » Sun Sep 03, 2017 10:17 am

i saw a repro framed picture of 20's /30's sailing boats in a charity shop. The picture showed some 20 or so cards but the print of the cards was quite faded. Amongst the illustrations were a few cards showing dinghies: Nat 12 (presumably) N23, X boat No.2, IC's Nos K29 & 347 (same card), and Int 14 K347. How many cards in a set?

Anyone know if there are other ciggy cards showing other dinghies?

I think I've seen the picture you refer to (in Emsworth?).

I have a framed reproduction (1997 first published in 1938) set of the cards in question - 25 in all. The series is entitled 'Racing Yachts - a series of twenty five from paintings by Charles Pears, R.O.I.' and covers dinghies, keel boats and yachts.
