I've included details of transfers given away with various publications over the decades. These are being sold in packets as official merchandise, but who knows, perhaps in 40 or 50 years someone will be searching for details of these transfers, trying to discover how many were issued! Is anyone collecting these? I'd love to hear from you if you do.
