News & Echo - Footballers of the North East/West
Footballers of the North East/West
News & Echo
18 cards ?
I thought I had this set listed in it's entirety and formatted all the information ready to publish on my blog. While doing some research into an unrelated issue I found a couple of images which prove that I didn't have the complete checklist after all.
I thought the set was issued as two sheets and when cut down to individual cards there are pictures on both side. So that's two sheets, 12 cards and 24 footballers. But I was wrong, there must be at least one extra sheet! If anyone has any further information I would be pleased to hear from them. In the meantime, this is what I know...

Footballers of the North West - Sheet 2
