I have one of these (shown) but the back is different to one currently on ebay (link). I don't know anything about these cards, does anybody know if there are any other versions?

mine has 3 'paragraphs' (for the want of a better word) above and below the star in the middle hence a bigger gap as opposed to the ebay card which has 2.

Hi Jerome,

I don't have any of these cards, but I can add a little information. The cards are not from France, but from Belgium- issued by Victoria Chocolates. The set included at least sports stars and movie stars and possibly other celebrities and there were 2 albums issued to hold the cards. The text on the back indicates how to get the albums, the price and the number of chocolate bar wrappers a collector needed to send into Victoria at their address in Brussels. I think that you could also buy the album(s) straight out as well. The offer is in French at the top and I believe in Flemish (or Dutch) underneath. The set was edited (or produced) by Vedetten Parade (a magazine perhaps?) in Antwerp, and then issued by the candy company.

Let us know if you find out anything else. Hope this helps,

Hi Jerome,

Yes, I collect soccer from all over the world. I also collect baseball internationally, rugby, Australian Rules Football, American football and hockey up to 1990, MLB to 1994, and soccer from any year. Let me know if you have any other questions or just want to talk collecting. Thanks again,
