After adding the checklist for this series a little while ago it was my intention to include details of the "crinkle-cut" cards but I get easily sidetracked so this post appears a little later than I intend and might not have appeared for longer had it not been for Martin Bennett's prompting. The cards were apparently cut and inserted into 'Lucky Bags' and this only seems to have happened to the cards in Series 2, though not much care was taken to ensure the cards were lined up properly so many of them are not cut straight. I am not aware of any Series 1 or Series 3 cards being treated the same way. The complete checklist for all three series can be found here - A&BC - (AAB-385/ABF-49-1) Footballers - 1st/2nd/3rd Series - 1971-72 Purple backs.
