Famous Footballers

Following on from the tremendous sales experienced as a result of the 1966 World Cup and the 'World Cup Willie' sugar lollipops (see above) Sugosa designed and wholesaled packs of sweet cigarettes through the UK, which included these Famous Footballers cards. The football cards were supplied by a company who added Sugosa's name to the bottom of the cards, though the name of the production company has been lost over time. I suspect that it was the same company that manufactured for Barratt & Co if not Barratt itself.
