Eagle Gallery of Famous Sportsmen
Longacre Press / Eagle
100?

Another collection of 'cut-out and keep' items, this time from the Eagle comic. These cover many sports, with no. 91 the highest number known, so there are probably at least a hundred in the whole set. I don't have any illustrations of the proper footballers, so I've included Allan Watkins, an England Test cricketer, who also played football for Plymouth Argyle and Cardiff City.

27.  Ronnie Moore (Speedway)
28.  Alec Bedser (Cricket)
29.  Jack Young (Speedway)
30.  D.G. Phadkar (Cricket)
33.  G.S. Ramchand (Cricket)
