18 cards (2 Footballers)

Although there are 18 sports personalities to collect, issued in pairs. Each card comes with 5 true or false statements on the back where you can scratch off a panel to reveal whether your choice is right or wrong. There were 12 different sets and I believe each of the 18 cards could be found with 6 different backs, which would mean you'd have to collect 108 cards to complete the set! I've only got poor photos of the Trevor Francis and Kevin Keegan cards, if anyone can provide better ones please get in touch.
UPDATE (29-09-2020 00:38):  Adrien Allen has provided a scan of the Trevor Francis double card, a better scan of the Kevin Keegan double card and included information on the rest of the missing double cards, so the list of those is now complete.
