VM Klubben (Sweden) - VM Fotbolls Stjärnor (1958 World Cup Player Badges)


VM Fotbolls Stjärnor (Badges)
VM Klubben

I picked up a few of these some years ago and keep them with my card collection. It seems that it is possible to get at least some of the players in at least seven different colours - Blue, Yellow, Red, Green, Cream, Light Blue and Teal. I have no idea how many players were issued. There were 16 teams at the World Cup tournament in Sweden in 1958 so there could be over 200. Does anyone know if a complete list exists? Two Welsh players along with Pelé and Garrincha are shown here.

UPDATE (14-07-2020 12:11):  Aaron Segaar has provided some additional information about some Mexican and Swedish players and I have also been able to add quite a few names to the list. 72 badges listed including one player available in two different colours.
