D.C. Thomson / Scoop - Sportstar Record Card


1978
Sportstar Record Card
D.C. Thomson / Scoop
52 cut outs

These were printed in the magazine over a 50 week period throughout 1978. The numbers are the issue numbers of the magazine that they were printed in, iwth issues 6 and 10 including two Sportstar Record Cards. Those who joined the Sportstar Club were sent a plastic wallet in which to collect the 'cards'.
