Ron Davies Metalpics ~ Southampton F.C.
Following on from the previous Metalpics collection - Arsenal Double Champions 70/71, Martin Bennett has sent in photos and information about the Southampton F.C. set....
I must admit that I was unaware that the the Arsenal cards you featured recently existed. I attach scans of the Southampton ones that I have in my collection.
There are coloured versions and also much larger copper coloured (I only have No. 4 Mick Channon) which are shown on scan 2. I understand that they were given away with fuel at a petrol station near to the old Dell ground. I was also told that you had to spend quite a bit to collect them all!!! I would guess that the Arsenal ones were probably available at a petrol station in London. As to value - who knows, I bought mine several years ago for about £5.00 each but have never seen any since (but I would like to get the others though).
