Notes

This card does not feature an expiry date, despite indicating that it should. Why this happened is unclear, however there may have been leftover stock of pre-printed cards, which may explain why this design was replaced during the run of the following card, Sky Issue 05, some of which carry the artwork and text of later Sky Issue 06/07/08 cards.
