FLE-170-3/ZJ9-3-2-1 Football Teams ~ Lion
Fleetway Publications / Lion
14 cards (6 sheets)

The cards were issued in sheets, four teams in the first sheet and two teams on each of the subsequent sheets. I know issue dates for three of them, but not for the other three. Often found cut down to 14 single cards.

UPDATE (08-11-2017 11:58):  Issue numbers and issue dates have been added for the remaining sheets and the order in which they have been listed has been changed so that they are now listed in chronological order. Thanks to Terry Kramer for providing this missing information.

    1. Hi Kevin,

      That'll be a nice addition to your collection.


  2. Alan Jenkins' Football Cartophilic Info Exchange is a true labor of love for football card and sticker collectors. Covering a vast range of items issued worldwide from the 1880s to the present day, including previews of yet-to-be-released cards, this blog is a valuable source of information. Alan's dedication to sharing his extensive knowledge, accumulated over decades of collecting, is evident in this repository of historical and current football memorabilia. It's refreshing to find a platform solely focused on sharing information rather than engaging in sales or valuations, making it a go-to resource for enthusiasts seeking to expand their understanding of the fascinating world of football cards.
