Lord Neilson

Lord Neilson

Neilson Holdings Ltd, the ice-cream subsidiary of Associated British Foods, was acquired by Lyons in 1962. To the best of my knowledge this was the only football card offering by the company. The Lord Neilson ice cream vans would be familiar to many British children from the 1960s and 70s.


1st Division Football League Club Badges

These attractive badges are also available with the Mr Softee and Tonibell company names, with the Tonibell set a year later. The Tonibell set has Birmingham City and Norwich City (promoted at the end of the 1971/72 season) in place of the relegated Huddersfield Town and Nottingham Forest (with thanks to Mark for this information).
