50 cards

I've included a checklist for this collection even though the only football card is a rugby one. The backs of the cards include a 'Facts' section and a 'Quiz' one. I've found a couple of these that include reference to football and I've included scans here.

    1. A set sold on eBay recently, it was listed £115 and the seller accepted a 'best offer' but I don't know what that was. The golf card goes for a premium, American collectors are always interested in it - there's one on eBay now priced at £24.99, other cards are listed between £2 and £5.99.

  2. Just found a load of these cards, almost a full set (just missing 21, 23 and 38) plus many many spares. Any idea what I should do with them?

    1. There's not many options, keep them or put them on eBay.
