Hibs players have featured on many forms of card over the years. Many different manufacturers
have produced cards to promote their products from cigarettes to chewing gum. The
most recent producers are Italian company Panini who currently sell both card and
sticker collections. This page will feature cards known to me. The major producers
will in time be given their own page to showcase the cards I have pictures of. One
offs and smaller producers will appear on this page.
This page is currently a work in progress
and will be added to at later dates.
