Football & Sports Favourite / Sports Fun - FOO-040/ZJ5-74 Sportsmen ~ Football & Sports Favourite and Sports Fun Photo Stamp Album (3)

FOO-040/ZJ5-74 Sportsmen
Football & Sports Favourite / Sports Fun
168 'stamps'

The previous articles regarding this collection can be found here - and - including an alphabetical list of all 168 'stamps'.

Bob Thomas has sent in an e-mail relating to this collection which may explain the confusion regarding the name of the issuing magazine:
Trevor says that the last 2 sheets were issued by Football Special & Sporting Pictorial. 
This could be because Sports Fun folded about this time; both the magazines were Amalgamated Press issues.
I see that JF Sporting Collectibles has listed the stamps under the Sports Fun banner in its auctions.

I've summarised the information about the two publications:

Sports Fun (published by Amalgamated Press)
11-Feb-1922 – 06-May-1922  (13 issues)

#becomes Sports Fun (New Series) (published by Amalgamated Press)
13-May-1922 – 25-Nov-1922  (29 issues)

#incorporated into Football & Sports Favourite from 02-Dec-1922 (published by Amalgamated Press)
04-Sep-1920 – 30-Mar-1939 (448 issues)
