  1. Hi Alan. I've just updated my gallery of these stickers - http://cards.littleoak.com.au/197071_bab_team_shields_gold/197071_bab_team_shields_gold.htm. One interesting difference is that you have a sticker of Middlesbrough as the Riversiders, whereas my image has them as the 'Ironsides'. Another variation? Regards, Nigel
