deCoubertin Books - Red Men


2017
Red Men
deCoubertin Books
5 cards

A new set of Liverpool cards will be available free with every purchase of this new book, while stocks last. I'm still not sure of the title of the set of cards or how many are included in a full set, so the information above may change when more information has been provided. The Red Men of Liverpool Football Club, by G.A. Rowlands includes every single Liverpool player featured on cigarette cards, along with biographical details and contextual notes, Rowlands tells the story of the cigarette card craze. Presented in full colour, Redmen is a richly illustrated and deeply evocative window into one of football’s bygone eras and an essential reference for every Liverpool fan. The book costs £14.99 and can be ordered directly from the publishers - Preorder.
Although I don't have a checklist yet, it has recently been announced that a poll to decide the final card to be added to the set ended with Ian Rush top, ahead of Robbie Fowler, so Rushie is included in the set. Designed by acclaimed artist Tim Fox Godden this offer is limited to the first 200 orders received via their website. 
UPDATE:  The checklist is now complete and the title of the set is Red Men.
