Webcosa - Football Bingo wrapper

 

1960s
WEB-140 / ZJ10-1 - Footballers
(Football Bingo wrappers)
Webcosa
UK
72+

These wrappers were intended to be collected and traded in for prizes. Each can be found with and without the club name below the footballers name. Webcosa supplied Football Bingo cards and the idea was to collect wrappers from all 25 clubs on the card to qualify for a prize, but many of the wrappers didn't include the name of the club, making those wrappers ineligible for the competition. There were lots of different Football Bingo cards and they are also very collectible, which I'll cover later.
These are not to be confused with another series of Football caricatures issued by Webcosa which come with a yellow background.

The list below is split into three sections:
1.  List of players and thie clubs (listed in club order)
2.  List of clubs that appear on Football Bingo cards where the players name is unknown
3.  List of players where the club is unknown.

Match magazine - 26/12/98 Poster


1998
Match magazine
26/12/98 Poster

For their Christmas issue Match magazine issued a large poster with photos of players from across the full spectrum of Premiership and Football League clubs, plus many Scottish League clubs too.

The three photos here (click on them to see larger versions) include all the players I don't recognise, though since the photos were compiled some players have been identified. It's safe to assume that these players were with these clubs during the first half of the 1998-99 season.

Any help with identification would be great.

Football Post
FOO-210 / Our Series of Popular Footballers
Postcard size

I don't know anything about these postcard size items. The only 2 subjects I know of are Dundee F.C. players. I presume that the series also includes players from other Scottish clubs.

I haven't discovered anything regarding the Football Post either. There was a newspaper by this name that started in 1903 and was published in Nottingham, but as these players are from Dundee that seems an unlikely source.

Fred MacDiarmid (Dundee F.C.)
Alan Bell (Dundee F.C.)



Blackpool F.C. - 1935-36 Programme inserts


1935-36
Blackpool F.C.
Programme inserts
Unknown number in set

Apparently these photos/prints were given away with the Blackpool F.C. Official Programme in 1935-36 season.
A first glance at the jersey might make you think that it couldn't be a Blackpool player, but the club played in dark and light blue stripes between 1933 and 1938. Check out the Historical Football Kits website (http://www.historicalkits.co.uk/Blackpool/Blackpool.htm).
I only know of 2 of these inserts so far. Any further information would be much appreciated. I'd also be interested in finding out which players were giveaway with which programme.
