Merlin Publishing in Milton Keynes issued a Rugby League card set in
1991. I'm sure that they keep at least some of the cards in archive so
you could contact them. The same company known as Topps Europe after
merging with the US card company, published the first ever RL sticker
collection ( Super League 97 ) last season. Stickers are more popular
than cards in Europe. Super League 97 is definitely still available
from them. How do I know? I was one of the founders of the company in
1989 and now act as a consultant for them.
