Daily Dispatch - Football Stars (3 series)

Football Stars - 3 Series
Daily Dispatch
66 (1st series), 64 (2nd series) and 59 (3rd series)

I have extensive lists of football cards and stickers but I must admit that there are much more knowledgeable collectors out there than I. I recently added the above post to this blog and now I've heard from Huddersfield Town collector Roger Pashby:

Hi Alan
I just wandered across your blog by following a link from Nigel Mercer's wonderful website. I have some of these newspaper items on the 1946 section of my website at
Strangely, my SPORTRAITS items feature photographs of the player, together with a small cartoon at the bottom; the caricatures that you feature here are in the FOOTBALL STARS series.
Feel free to 'lift' any images that you like!

That's great to know. I'll be updating the original post with a link to this new one. I've got checklists for the 3 different series of Football Stars that were issued in the Daily Dispatch. I've had these lists for many years and I am ashamed to say I've forgotten who sent them to me. I would really like to give him a namecheck here.
