B.A.B. - Football Club Rosettes - I

Football Club Rosettes - I
34 different rosettes known

These are usually identified as being issued by B.A.B., and because of this I've listed them as such. But they are unlikely to have been issued by that company. They were probably issued by a company called Northern Trancessories, based in Leeds. I wouldn't be surprised if there was some sort of loose connection between the two companies though.
Some clubs are shown more than once. It is always a good idea to check every B.A.B. sticker you come across as there are often variations in colour or layout. New versions are found quite regularly.

Cardiff City League Review - Cardiff City Player Postcards

Cardiff City Football Review Postcards
Cardiff City Football Review


The Cardiff City Football Review was an unofficial publication that was issued for every home game during the 1921-22 season. The above illustration comes from the game against Everton. The club were worried by the competition offered by the Football Review, which contained more readable content and covered some of the other big amateur teams in the area too, like Cardiff Corinthians and Cardiff Albion. They also gave away postcards of the Cardiff City players. The list includes four which includes details of which publication they came with, plus a few others that are known to exist.

At least 40

Printed in an unknown newspaper some time in the late 1940s. This is another example of a newspaper filling a gap in the collecting aspirations of young football supporters in a time when real collectable cards were few and far between. They cover all sorts of sports, not only footballers. The highest number I've seen is no. 39.
