Bassett & Co. - (BAS-24-1) Football Action (1976-77)


1976-77
(BAS-24-1) Football Action
Bassett & Co.
50 cards

Mark Hughesdon has sent in some scans of cards from this series. Mark discovered an error as the first card shown (no. 32) is described as Newcastle v Wolves, but Mark easily identified his second home, Luton Town's Kenilworth Road. The action is from the February 1975 fixture Luton Town v Newcastle United.
There are two different sets of 50 Football Action cards and it's easy to tell the difference between them. This set, issued in 1976-77, has no gap between the title of the card and the body of text whereas the set issued the following season has a recognisable gap between the title and the descriptive text. For some of the cards I've been able to add the names of players featured in the action photo.
