Fusées Nucléaire

Missiles and Satellites cards were released in 1958 by Parkhurst Products, Ltd. in Canada. The American Card Catalog reference is V339-7. Wax packs contained a piece of Zip Bubble Gum. Each card measures approximately 2.5 x 3.625 inches. The card text is printed in English and French.

1958 Parkhurst Products : Missiles and Satellites #1 - First Satellite Launching (Sputnik)

Cards #1–25 feature illustrations of early Soviet missions, as well as planned space exploration concepts. The artistic depictions of Sputnik 1 and Laika the space dog are inaccurate, likely due to the limited information available at the time of production. The image of Laika (Лайка, "Curly") is based on a photograph of Kozyavka (Козявка, "Booger"), a dog that safely completed two sub-orbital flights in June 1956.

Both photos appear in the Jet Planes series from the Exhibit Supply Co., Record Holders of the World from Cadet Sweets, Missile and Jet Plane Trading Cards from Nesbitt's, Aircraft & Missile Trading Cards from Sicle, and Histoire de L'Aviation from Mills cigarettes.
