1921-22 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.

1940s Our Sports Gallery ? (newspaper) 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.
