1959-60 A&BC Chewing Gum, Footballers


Poster for the 1959-60 A&BC Chewing Gum Set

Introduction

The 1959 set is A&BC's second set dedicated to footballers. The backs on this second release feature a football quiz for collectors to answer questions based on football. The cards were released in two series. There are a total of 98 cards in the set.


- Series 1: 1 to 49

- Series 2: 50 to 98


There appears to be no checklist card included with this set. There are two types of packs that could be bought which were a one card pack ($0.01) or a four card pack ($0.03). An interesting tidbit about the wrappers too are that they state "Manufactured under licence with Topps Chewing Gum Inc., N.Y., U.S.A". This is because Topps bought A&BC in 1959.


The cards in this set feature a vivid red back and do not have variations.


Once again the highly sought after cards in the set were the Bobby Charlton. Jimmy Greaves is another player that was sought after in this set.
