  1. Hi Alan

    is the 'Soccer Stars 1946/47' collection listed anywhere?



    1. Hi Paul,

      I've held off adding the checklists because I'm missing four names from Set 4, but I think I'm more likely to get the checklist completed if I add it to my blog. I'll add it later today.


  2. Hi Alan

    Would still love to see the list of the full series. I have Blades cards from series 14 but no idea how many series were printed, nor which I am missing!



    1. Hi Paul,

      This is the only checklist I have for Football Stars 1946/47 but I have noticed I've been neglecting all the different Fosse Collection sets. I have checklists for 21 Soccer Stars 1919-1939 sets. I will try and get as many as I can on my blog over the next couple of weeks and I'll concentrate on those series that include Blades players.

      Merry Christmas,


    2. HI Alan

      Fantastic! Can't wait to see. Hope you have a good Christmas.

      Thanks again!


    3. Hi Paul,

      I split all the Soccer Stars checklists into 4 posts, 3 have already appeared on my blog as the last post in each of the last 3 days. The 4th part will appear tomorrow at 7pm.

      Always happy to help whenever I can.
