I bought a batch of these recently, and have a few duplicates. I figured I'd offer them to the list first. If you're not familiar with these, they are about 6 1/4 by 4 1/8 inches (very rough measurement) and were issued by subscription from 1977- about 81 or 82. For us here in the states, they often had the only trading cards of people in less mainstream sports. They have nice photos of some of the greats, and occasionally the almost greats. The backs have biographical info, or a story of a particular race. The ones I have are

Eddy Merckx -(tiny crease near top center) $7 Track Racing - shows E. Merckx and P. Sercu $10 Tour of Switzerland- scenic view $3 Albert Zweifel - Cyclocross great shot hurdling barriers $5 Daniel Morelon - I have 2 of these $5 ea Roger De Vlaemink- on Gios in Brooklyn Jersey $5 Eddy Merckx - Mont-Revard 1972 shows Cyrille Guimard trailing $10 GP des Nations - shows Roy Schuiten, Raleigh team $3 Jacques Anquetil- Yellow jersey- I have 2 of this one $5 ea Bernard Thevenet- on Puegeot, yellow jersey 75 TDF -I have 2 $5 ea Tour De France- Zoetemelk, Merckx, Thevenet, Van impe 1975 $5 The foreruners of the bicycle- shows part of a print of a bike race in 1868 $1

Or $50 for the whole group, If someone has bought a few, I'll refigure the group price based on whats left. I can ship anywhere, shipping included for U.S. addresses, international at cost

There are scans at http://www.mindspring.com/~sblackstone/1.jpg numbers 2-6 are the rest of them.
