Rare 1960s Doctor Who Cards Appear On eBay!
Now here’s something you don’t see very often – rare 1960s Doctor Who cards, on eBay!
These fascinating items have surfaced thanks to a memorabilia collector who’s selling off some of his acquisitions, (with the promise of more to come, so this could be an account to watch…) The items in question are two complete sets of collectible cards; first, the Doctor Who Adventures cards, which were given away with Wall’s ice lollies; second, we have the Doctor Who and the Daleks cards, given away with Cadet’s Sweets.
There are 36 cards in the first set and 50 in the second, and they originate from a “pet and smoke-free home”, as well as being presented in protective binder. The seller also promises a full money-back guarantee should the items prove to be unsatisfactory, so there is a minimal risk to any investment. Moreover, it is worth noting that, whilst there are very slight signs of age on some of the cards, they appear to have been exquisitely preserved – a real ‘must’ for early Who fans.
Particularly intriguing is the moment where the Daleks meet the Voords on card 3 of 50. Just one question, though… Is it canon?!
The auction ends on Thursday – head to eBay now to place your bids!
