Cadet Sweets - All Sports (Transfers)


The image on the left is as the Transfer looks. the one of the right is a mirror image, which is easier to read. 

There was a set of Transfers issued by Cadet Sweets that featured Famous Footballers, if anyone needs a checklist for this set please let me know. This collection seems hared to come by though. They are roughly same size as the various card sets issued by Cadet Sweets.

  1. Hi Alan
    I have the Don McEvoy transfer in this set and although I'm not too sure of the correct date myself, I can certainly say that c1958 is way out! McEvoy came to prominence at Huddersfield in 1952-53 season and then moved to Sheffield Wednesday in December 1954, so I would date this series at 1953 or 1954.

  2. Hi Roger,
    Thanks for your comment. I often check out your Huddersfield Town Card website (http://homepage.ntlworld.com/roger.pashby/). I've decided to go with the date you have suggested, but at the same time I've also decided to take Don McEvoy out of this checklist as the one on your site is from the 'Footballers' series not the 'All Sports' set. Thanks very much for your input.
