1971 MOBIL FOOTY PHOTOS
A 40 card set (four players from each of the 10 SANFL clubs), these cards were available from Mobil service stations in South Australia. The album was also sold at your local Mobil for the princely sum of 40c. Cards could be stuck in the album, which also provided a full list of Magarey Medal winners from 1898, SANFL leading goalkickers since 1882 and SANFL premiers all the way back to 1878. It also contained the 1971 SANFL fixture and some football hints/tips to help the youngsters improve their game.
There was a VFL Mobil set (40 cards + album) sold in Victoria, and a WAFL set (40 cards + album) sold throughout Western Australia.
I've also found an advertisement for this set in the August 7, 1971 Football Budget.
Mobil also released similar 40 card sets with folders in 1964 & 1965, which i'll show in a separate post down the track.
