Comments:

 

Nice promotional item celebrating 60 years of Alba Radio (and later Television) products. I have never seen such a promo item before and by the look of it - it is a pretty standard generic promotional item. I would love to know who else in 1977 used this company to produce promo-cards - the picture of the Joker should help.
