I need you help,

I've bought 110 cards the other day and I can't find any information about them.
Would you be able to provide me any kind of information about these cards ?

the card format is : 88mm X 88mm ( 3 1/2 X 3 1/2 )

So far I was able to make a list of the different cards I was able to find online. total 151

But I'm not sure if it's complete and couldn't find any detail of years or origin and how many cards in that series

Let me know if anyone can help me ?

Thank you and stay safe

I never saw them before but the art looks neat. I'm sure our resident car card expert, Jon, might know about them.

I am unfamiliar with this card set; however:

There have been a number of automobile card sets world-wide including this one that use the same artwork as the book "Illustrated Motor Cars of the World", sub-title "From 1770 to Present Day 932 Models in Full Color".

The book was published by Grosset & Dunlap in 1971 simultaneously in Canada & The Netherlands.

The author was Piet Olyslager, with an introduction by Jack Brabham.

Another group of sets using this same artwork are marked Full Speed Virginia Cigarettes from 1955, 1956, and 1957 by United Tobacco Agencies in The Netherlands. Each of these is a 192 card set, and albums were available.

Here is a link, that if one will scroll to the United Tobacco Agencies paragraph, shows pictures of the albums and a sample of the cards obverse and reverse:
