Bomboland has a ton of great artistic-cyling (and radball) matchbox labels scanned on his Flickr and website from the mid-60’s. I’ve taken the liberty of posting the rest from his Flickr below. These pieces are very Post-Constructivism-inspired; as is typical of athletic art from the Czech republic in that era.

Radball! Which translates to Bike-ball.
