So, have been collecting cardbacks for many years now. Have already given the palitoys their own outing, so thought I'd let the rest of the boys out for the day.

First up, over to France for a few SW 12/20 back square card meccanos. Also have a resealed 2-1b. Still have loads of these to get, but they are fairly rare with the ESB ones being really rare.

Next up are my ROTJ 45 back meccanos. This are a bit easier to come by. Missing loads of these as well.

Foreign Cardbacks Focus Pbucket

Next are my German General Mills ESB 45 back cardbacks. Only three to go on these! And there are two really rare ROTJ ones to get too.

Foreign Cardbacks Focus Pbucket

Down in Oz for my Toltoys SW 12/20 backs. Only five to go on this run.

Foreign Cardbacks Focus Pbucket

Over to Canada next for my GDE SW 12C backs. Five to go on this run too.

Foreign Cardbacks Focus Pbucket

And here are the other 12 and 20 backs Canadian cards I have. Got quite a few to get here.

Foreign Cardbacks Focus Pbucket

Over to Argentina next for my Top Toys cardbacks. There weren't many of these so only two to get.

Foreign Cardbacks Focus Pbucket

Japan next for my SW 12 back Takaras. Three to go on this run.

Foreign Cardbacks Focus Pbucket

On to Italy for my SW 12 back Harberts. Eight to go on this run.

Foreign Cardbacks Focus Pbucket

Spain next for a few POCH/PBP cards I have. There are loads more but they are really hard to get.

Foreign Cardbacks Focus Pbucket

Belgium and Holland is the last country on my list with my SW 12 back clipper cardbacks. Eight still to get here but they are quite rare.

Foreign Cardbacks Focus Pbucket

Next are my ESB 45 back clippers. I also have a resealed 2-1b. Still quite a few to get here.

Foreign Cardbacks Focus Pbucket

Lastly are my black wrap round clipper stickers which have been put over cardbacks from Kenner, Palitoy and oddly, Clipper!

Foreign Cardbacks Focus Pbucket

Hope you have enjoyed my world tour of cardbacks.

Jason, your cardback collection rocks!!! I enjoyed watching them a lot! Very Happy

I especially liked seeing the Clipper run, it brings back good old memories!

Curious: Which General Mills ROTJ cards are tough to get?

Cheers! There's a ROTJ Imperial Tie Fighter Pilot and Cloud Car Pilot on German General Mills but they are both really really rare as far as I am aware.

Surprised

Cheers, there's a few I'm missing which are generally very expensive.

There's Mexico with Lili Ledy. I have one of these.

Brazil with Glasslite.

Turkey with Uzay.

Would like to add at least one of the last two to my collection.

Cheers! I think that's a lot more common as a straight clipper card. Google images can't find a wrap round one either!
