Hi folks.
Last weekend I retrieved all of my card backs out of the loft. These were all the ones I saved from my childhood, in fact I think I kept just about every one I got back then.
They're in pretty tatty condition with pen marks, childish graffiti & the Nameplates were all cut out in readiness to post off to Coalville for the latest mail-a-way offer. Laughing

Any-ways I spent a very pleasant hour or so going through & sorting them out into some kind of order:

Palitoy ESB 45 Back

unsure My knowledge of card backs is sadly lacking, can any one help with these.. do I have anything rare or of notable interest for fellow collectors ?

Cheers

WOWZERS!
Just love anything with a PALITOY logo on (UK Heritage and all that).
You had some cool figures growing up, thanks for sharing!! Stormie Smiley

My knowledge of Palitoy Cardbacks isn't awesome either.
I had a fair few of the same type as you growing up.
Sure someone on here knows muchas info.

Got most of my knowledge of Kenner from Kellerman's fab book.
Stephane F has written 2 amazing books about Meccano France, Bi-logo & Tri-Logo Vintage incl Cardbacks.

Thanks for posting these. Mine were misplaced years ago (had been stored in a school shoes shoe-box).
One of my Nans (Grannies) from Liverpool was the superstar in my collecting heyday as a kid. Every Tri-Logo last 17 (or 15 as they were sometimes known) had a £1.59 Yellow Sticker on... The only one I never managed was the A-Wing Pilot. I got that one on a POTF card few years back.

These are great. I don't know about rarity but contact Jason (Mr Palitoy on here) and he can shed some info. Anything palitoy is probably a premium over kenner but I just don't know how much.
