Amalgamated Press / The Champion - Photo Album of Famous Sportsmen


1950
Photo Album of Famous Sportsmen
Amalgamated Press / The Champion
64

It's 1950, five years after the end of the Second World War, but there is still a paper shortage. The Champion issued another of their little booklets for collecting photos, but this time the photos were printed on the back page of the story-paper, rather than being included on a separate sheet inserted into the publication. You also needed to buy the album this time, costing all of 1d. The photos are listed below in the order they appeared in The Champion as well as a checklist in numerical order.
