Summary expansion
Individual brightly colored illustrated cards were given away with every purchase of a can of "Felices" brand canned fruit marketed by Compañía Industrial Empacadora de Dulces, S.A., and children would collect and trade the cards, trying to acquire all 268 of them, in order to fill up the album. The cards include illustrations of Fidel and Raul Castro, Ernesto "Che" Guevara, Camilo Cienfuegos, Faure Chaumont, Rolando Cubelas, Victor Bordon, Elroy Gutierrez Menoyo, Crescencio Perez, Faustino Perez, Luis Orlando Rodriguez, Efigenio Almejeiras, Hubert Matos, Humberto Sori Marin, Juan Almeida, Raul Chivas, and other leaders as well as many illustrations of the historical events from the start of the revolution until the overthrow of the previous regime
