Longacre Press ~ Eagle / Swift - Soccer Stars


LON-700 / LOD-3 Soccer Stars
Longacre Press  / Swift - Eagle and Swift
16 cards

The first part of the collection was given away with the very last issue of Swift on 2 March, 1963. The comic merged with Eagle and the last three cards were given away with the first three issues of the re-launched Eagle/Swift comic.

A plastic wallet was included included with the 9 March issue. It shows Ray Pointer (Burnley) on the front and Chelsea's Peter Bonetti and Johnny Gordon of Birmingham City on the back. I pinched the scans of the Ray Wilson card from Roger Pashby's website, Huddersfield Town Cards & Stickers.
