They Think It's All Over - Hancocks Heroes (02)

Hancocks Heroes
They Think It's All Over
12 cards (2 footballers)

Justin McCullough has sent in scans of the Rob Andrew card, which I'm happy to use. Information about this set is very scarce for some reason.

UPDATE (20-01-2020 11:06):  Penno55 has added a comment to confirm that this collection actually has just 12 cards with card number 69 now added to the list.

1.  Alan Shearer (Newcastle United)

3.  Mike Gatting (Cricket)
8.  John McEnroe (Tennis)
12.  Phil Tufnell (Cricket)
19.  Mike Tyson (Boxing)
22.  Jayne Torvill (Ice Skating)
23.  Linford Christie (Athletics)
31.  Red Rum (Horse Racing)
34.  Jimmy Greaves (England)
49.  Rob Andrew (Rugby Union)
69.  H.R.H. The Princess Royal (Show Jumping)
74.  Desert Orchid (Horse Racing)


  1. There are 12 in the set. The missing card is #69 HRH The Princess Royal. The cards I believe were designed to be added to a printed album. Guessing the missing numbers were printed in the album similar to a Typhoo Disney set.

  2. Thank you very much for your help. I always thought there would have been an album/book but despite searching from time to time I've never come across one.


  3. Not sure I've come across a set of cards harder to find information about!! Naturally this wonderful site has the most info, so thank you, but man would I like to find these!

    1. Agreed. I've been trying to find scans of the Shearer and Greaves cards but without any luck.
