  1. Hi Alan

    Just wondered If you or anyone else knows for sure that card #40 is Sheffield United? I've never seen it come up over the years and Allchurch moved from Swansea to the Blades in March 1961.



    1. Hi Paul,

      Yes, he's listed as Sheffield United and Wales on the back of the card. I don't have a good enough photo to show here, I'll e-mail it to you.


    2. Sheffield United and wales

  2. does anybody have no 9 Alex Wilson and no 23 Jackie Sewell to sell ? as this makes up my set of 50

  3. Hi I've found about 20 of these in the attic are they worth anything please ?

    1. There are individual cards listed on eBay between £1-£10 but I can't find any that have sold recently.

  4. Got stanley matthews in there jack charlton and more
