WALL'S SKY RAY DOCTOR WHO ALBUM & CARDS - PART ONE...


Copyright BBC TV & the Estate of TERRY NATION

Well, we're not quite halfway through the CADET DALEKS sweet cigarette cards, but I thought I'd take a detour and present the first part of the WALL'S SKY RAY DOCTOR WHO iced lolly album and cards for all those who can't wait to see them. Tough luck though - 'cos you'll still have to wait until the 2nd instalment to see all 36 cards - but, in the meantime, here are a few images to whet your appetite.

By heck, - that was quick work! I didn't know there was also an album, so this is all new to my eyes. Thanks Kid, you're too good to me!! JP

I've got this lurking somewhere, don't know quite how it managed to hang around. I picked up it in a village shop in Osmington while on Holiday. That was back when shops had counters instead of checkouts. Pretty sure they must've been giving them away. I'd spotted it cos we couldn't get it back home. If I'd taken it to school it would have spawned some envy but that would've seen it stolen or the pages torn out. Anyway I wonder if I can flog it.

There you are, JP - if you talk nicely to DSE, he may sell you his album for a reasonable price. Perhaps I should rename this blog 'Exchange & Mart'.

Interesting graphics, especially with the more handsomer, taller and leaner Patrick Troughton lookalike. I have never heard of SKY RAY and cannot ever recall seeing any cards being given away with ice-cream or lollies. Were these cards actually attached to the ice-lolly wrappers? Were they double-sided printed and what are the approximate dimensions?

They were approximately the same size as the Cadet cards and came in a greaseproof-type sleeve (if I recall correctly) inside the lolly wrapper. They had the same sort of info as on the back as the Cadet cards.

DSE, - put it on EBay, you'll get far more than I could afford to pay!(love the blog, by the way!)
Jake,- the cards were the same size as all sweet cigarette cards and were inside the lolly wrapper, but behind a protective bit of polythene, which was stuck down and you had to separate the two layers to get your card out.

There you go then. I must be remembering some other cards that came in an opaque, grey-ish sleeve. Anyone know what they might've been?

John Pitt said...

Lyons Maid also did some lollies with cards ( Fireball XL5?? ), so perhaps I may be remembering the two the wrong way around? In both cases though the cards were protected from the ice by a waterproof layer, but this didn't prevent them from being bent around the space-ship shape of the lollies! JP

Kid said...

I think you're probably right in your first recollection, JP, as Lyons Maid and Walls (do they even exist nowadays?) would probably have used the same method of protecting the cards. I remember seeing cards in little greyish sleeves, but they might not have been ice lolly cards.
