1979
British Stars Set 2
Dubreq
32 player cards per season

This set was issued three times, some players featured in two or three of the sets, other only in one. The details added to each line indicate the kit the player is wearing in the photograph - either club or country, while the four numbers represent International Goals, International Appearances, League Goals and League Appearances.
I must thank Neil Goulding for sharing all this information many years ago.
