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.
