it's Disney '83

Following the success of The Superheroes Swop Sensation in 1982, Colin Penn produced this album. There were 144 card stock trading cards in the set to complete the album. A host of Disney characters from the animated shorts & films and live action films were included. There were Disney fairs in Johannesburg, Durban and Cape Town. Money was raised for South African charities. Many of the cards were sponsored by South African companies. The album also had competitions and gifts to buy through mail-order.
Good memories of walking around with a pile of  trading cards in my blazer pocket - we swopped them at school.

Here is the cover and first page of cards:
 
For all you fans who wanted to see more cards - here is the set:













Thanks Gerhard for this picture of some of the Disney cards and an original packaging envelope that the cards were sold in:

  1. Hi, please can you show me all the cards from this collections. I was very young at the time and have a vague idea of all the characters from this book and the superhero swop (which I saw on the previous blog). I remember this one had, mickey mouse and friends, alice in wonderland, peter pan, tron, lady and the tramp, and others, and they had pan-am at the back of all the cards.

  2. I have 2 difference copies of It's Disney. One is my wives and she kept the extra promo pages in the album and Colin Penn Promotions. I see you have the event calender of Disney themed events and fairs. Do you want me to photograph the other extra pages and email them to you? Regards Marc
