A&BC - Full Colour Football Viewer


1971
Football Viewer
A&BC Chewing Gum
9 viewers

I've listed these as A&BC Chewing Gum only because they use images from A&BC Chewing cards, though it's unlikely the company actually made them. The card attached to each of the viewer packets features Brian Kidd in action for Manchester United against Manchester City and each viewer is in the shape of an old TV. There are 11 images in each and I have details for 8 of the different viewers and I was originally told that there were only 8 but a box of these has appeared on eBay and the seller states that there are 9 different viewers, id that is correct there's still one to identify.
UPDATE (25-08-2017 18:26):  Martin Bennett has provided a list of the players featured in the ninth viewer.
