Original UNIQUE Dixie Dean EVERTON display STAND UP '34 Carreras cigarette cards from my #1 book

£475.00

Description

Used in my 2019 book, this self-standing original UNIQUE item is perhas the only surviving example of a genuine antique Dixie Dean EVERTON display point-of-sale stand from 1934 advertising Carreras cigarette cards. It stands a few inches tall. 

The only rarer Dixie Dean 'card' is a Tranmere Rovers card from c.1924. This takes 2nd place in the Dixie Dean cards-related rarities league. While there are many 1925 Vanguard & Adventure photos cards out there there is only 1 of these known worldwide! Unique. No others are known and this is believed to be the only surviving example of the 1934 point-of-sale counter display advert, made of cardboard, for the new series of tobacco cards by Carreras. 100% original! Middlesbrough's George Camsell joins Dixie Dean and others to celebrate the launch of the well-known 'Famous Footballers' cards of 1934. The $ilver dollar coin is shown for scale and is not included. This is priced around the value of a Dean postcard - and every Dean postcard is known in at least a handful of exemplars. No other examples of this are known. The 2nd rarest Dixie Dean ephemerum? 1 only. When it's gone, it's gone for ever. Slight crease at centre, some marks to rear but generally very good
