I notice the top one is called "Gulf Grappler"

Does the card mention where they were made?

Gday Laz,

I played a little phone tag with Doug a few weeks back and then I got taken over by other events. I'm glad you bumped this up - I'll try to catch up with Doug this week and should hopefully have some more info Thumbs Up
