Ginners Left Foot fanzine / Hot Trumps - York City F.C. Top Trumps Card Game (2)

York City F.C. Top Trumps Card Game
Ginners Left Foot fanzine / Hot Trumps

Following a previous post about these cards, I've had an e-mail from their creator - Daley Mayall:

I stumbled across a message you have posted on the internet and thought I would clear up your question -
'Hot Trumps' were produced within the pages of the York City fanzine I edited, Ginner's Left Foot, with my colleague Angus. 
They were meant as a bit of fun, and featured not just players, but aspects of the club, such as the team coach, the water tank at the ground, and York City gin and vodka (don't ask!) which featured during the troubled John Batchelor era. Instructions were included to stick the page onto cardboard backing and play amongst your friends for a laugh. I think Hot Trumps featured in 4 or 5 issues overall.
As an aside, I actually did design and produce full-colour printed Top Trumps cards especially for the fans, and sold about 60 packs from memory.
I sold one or two sets on Ebay. They were very popular. They were all printed on my home inkjet printer and then laminated to protect them from damage whilst playing. I have attached a picture to give you an idea of what they looked like. I produced a particularly professional set of cards, even though I say so myself! ;-)
I hope this information is of use to you.
Regards, Andrew aka Daley Mayall, GLF (Ginners Left Foot)
