I've had another e-mail and some scans from Roger Pashby:

I don’t think you’ve covered this series of cards yet. They were issued in several comics to be placed in one of five little booklets. I’ve included the list of who was issued when – I’ll let you type them all up! The five comics and little booklets to place them in were Scorcher, Lion, Smash, Buster and Tiger. There was another set which went into a booklet for Valiant and TV21 and there is a separate list for those which will be in the back of the Valiant and TV21 booklet, which I don’t yet have so I can’t confirm anyone there.

I have come to the conclusion that there must have been TWO series of these cards, because there are no Huddersfield players in the lists that I sent you.

Town had been promoted by May of 1970 – after the publication dates in the back of the booklet that I sent to you – and I have five Town player cards, three of which (Cherry, McGill and Krzywicki) were issued by Tiger but they don’t appear in the lists, leading me to believe that there must have been another set in 1971. Also, the Worthington card is issued by Lion & Thunder, suggesting that by then the comics had merged and there was ONE booklet covering those cards, and again Big Frank doesn’t appear in the list on the page for Lion.

The more that I type, the more I begin to think that you probably know all of this. But just in case you didn’t…

Always happy to oblige, here's the complete list, all the cards, when they were issued and with which magazines (a last-minute decision - I've decided to include all the blue ones in this post and will cover the red ones next):

  1. The Henry Newton card (Scorcher 28/02/1970) is actually a picture of Dave Hilley, although it is captioned as Newton. Image here http://nffccardsstickers.blogspot.co.uk/2015/08/scorcher-my-favourite-soccer-stars.html
