Live & Kicking magazine - Out Every Month! (Bad Boys)


  1. ALlan,
    Recently when looking through the May/June 1997 issue of Cartophilic Notes and News I came across a reference to another set of Live & Kicking Playing Cards, this time David Beckham and Jamie Redknapp are mentioned. The reference appears on page 5752 with two B&W images.

    1. Hi John,

      I've been a member for over 40 years and must have had the issue but I obviously missed that set as I don't have it in my database. Unfortunately, I never kept the magazines for very long. I had a quick look around the internet but only found the 1994 set, so this 1997 issue is something for me to look out for.

  2. Alan, I have just sent you an email with the scanned page.

    1. Thanks for letting me know john, I'll check it out straight away.

      Cheers, Alan.
