I am just starting to learn a little something
about the very interesting subject of Cigarette Card collecting, this subject
is new to me as I have devoted the last few years to collecting Cues and Books
Some of the cards available are very attractive
and colourful and give a contemporary glimpse into the life and times of
professional sportsmen as they were making their great achievements before many
of us were born.
Often the text on the reverse of each card
states what a given player has achieved and was printed quite soon after the
events depicted on the card itself. This somehow brings this particular
achievement to life in a way that books and historical discussions cannot.
I plan to seek out many such items for myself
and with my fresh perspective I hope to enthuse those of you who have never
thought about collecting other Snooker and Billiards related collectable items
so watch this space for future developments.
For a more expert and detailed contribution,
look out for the forthcoming contributions from Mike Young and Andy
