In this lot the rather rare complete series of 72 International Teams, which is also known by collectors as "Benfica" series. The 72 different backs together form a jigsaw puzzle with the image being a picture of the team of Benfica (picture no. 57).
This set was issued by the chewing gum brand Monty at the time. Chewing gum had become very popular in the 1950s, after it was introduced here in the Netherlands by Canadian soldiers during the war.
The brand Monty (a tribute to field marshal Montgomery!) was very popular, not least because the chewing gum was provided with cards of football players and artists. With collectors the Monty cards are therefore highly sought after and often very costly.
As mentioned, the series consists of 72 international teams from the leagues from 1969-1970. The dimensions of the cards is 59 x 77 mm. The plates are undescribed and have no glue residue, but sometimes some light traces of wear. For a good impression, photos have been added of the fronts of the pictures.
