NME Playing Cards

I thought that there might be an Orange Juice/Edwyn Collins playing card in this set of NME playing cards but unfortunately there isn't one. On the other hand there are two featuring Bobby Gillespie (Primal Scream) and Jim and William Reid (The Jesus and Mary Chain). The original photographs used on these cards are by Kevin Cummins -whom most folks know for his legendary shots of Joy Division.
You can have a look at the full set here. I've had them ever since the pack was given away free with the New Musical Express in 1991.
