Welcome to the latest Never Mind The Adverts Here Are The Toys!
In this edition I share photos of some 70s and 80s die cast cars I found at my local flea market in France last Sunday. Featuring the brands Corgi, Matchbox, Majorette, and my first example of a Politoys (later rebranded as the famous Polistil company). I also snagged a vintage set of German FX-Schmid automobile cards. FX-Schmid was one of the forerunners to the world famous Top Trumps cards which are still popular and sold to date. Those of you who had a set of Waddingtons Top Trumps back in the 80s will recognise the familiar old-school design of the cards.
So, cars, cars and cards of cars… not a bad haul then, and a relaxing way to spend an hour on a Sunday morning, and all for less than the price of a pain au chocolate and double espresso (which incidently I had too 🙂 )
Enjoy the pics!
