1934 Macrobertsons 1/2d Footballers
Collection: 216 cards
In 1880, David Robertson started manufacturing sugar confectionery in an improvised boiler in the family home in Fitzroy. In 1934, his company Macrobertsons inserted sports cards into their chocolate products. There was both a Sports Champions and VFL release. The Footballers release had a portrait shot of the players with a dark brown border. There were 216 cards released during the year as 3 different sets. The first 72 are very hard to find, the next 72 incredibly hard, and the final 72 near impossible! It’s the third set that features the Dick Reynolds rookie card, making the iconic card even more of a gem! Only a few have been seen in modern times.
