Amalgamated Press / The Champion - Autographs (1937) booklet (3)


1937

Autographs (1937) booklet
Amalgamated Press / The Champion
1

I have included two previous posts about this collection, without knowing exactly what it is. You can find them here http://cartophilic-info-exch.blogspot.co.uk/2013/11/amalgamated-press-champion-unknown.html and here http://cartophilic-info-exch.blogspot.co.uk/2013/11/amalgamated-press-champion-unknown_28.html.

I now know that this 52 page album is also called Autographs (like the 1935 issue). This time the cover design is divided diagonally into four sections coloured yellow, green, red, and blue, and was given a way with issue no. 801 of The Champion, dated 5 June, 1937. This issue also included the first sheet of 10 autographs.
