Boing magazine - Simply The Best - Top 100 - Sweden, Finland


2006-2008
Simply The Best - Top 100
Boing magazine
Sweden, Finland
100 cards

Boing cards were issued in Norway, Sweden and Finland. The cards from the latter two countries have the same checklist though text on the cards is either in Swedish or Finnish. The Pele card shown here is the one from Finland. Large cards with two punched holes in the side to facilitate inclusion in a binder. The cards tell us that Simply the Best is a Top 100, but card 55 is the highest known. If you can help fill in any gaps please get in touch.
UPDATE (10-03-2018 21:04):  Rasmus Holmberg has provided details of four cards that have been added to the checklist.
