"You wear supporters' badges to support your own team but un-supporters' badges are used to rib the opposition." These badges were included with issue no. 1807 of The Rover, dated 13 February, 1960. It's not known how many different badges were issued as the Editor didn't specify how many there were. Each issue included two badges provided in a special envelope.
