John Drake Danger Man Somportex Ltd. - 1965
Note: This 72 card series was issued by Somportex Ltd. London, printed in Denmark, and mainly issued in the UK and Canada in gum-vending machines. Card size is 2 1/4" x 3 1/8", and the fronts feature black-and-white photos from the TV series, which was marketed in the U.S. under the title "Secret Agent" when it was lengthened to full-hour episodes. The full title, as referred to on the card backs and in guides, is "John Drake Danger Man." Thanks much to Darin Dunham for the checklist! ("There's a man who lives a life of danger. To everyone he meets, he stays a stranger. ... With every move he makes, another chance he takes. Odds are he won't live to see tomorrow." [Chorus] "Secret Agent Man, Secret Agent Man. They're giving you a number, and taking away your name.") I just recite the theme to remind you that John Drake was played by Patrick McGoohan, who had another series where having a number instead of a name was important ...
