Football cigarette cards, trading cards and stickers issued around the world, from the 1880's to the present day and even some that haven't been issued yet. Please be aware, I don't have any cards for sale, this blog is a means of passing on information I have gathered over many decades of collecting. Alan Jenkins (firstname.lastname@example.org).
2017-18 Match Attax 2017/2018 - Premier League Asia Trophy Topps 8 cards Richard W Football Cards has provided scans of all the cards in the small set. Richard also included a scan of the tournament programme so I've included that too.
1986 Mexico 86 Panini / Buitoni France 427 stickers I don't have much information on these stickers issued in France with Buitoni products. These are the only ones I know of so far, all are regular player stickers. So far there's no more than three for any one team but I don't know if that is significant. The fronts of the stickers are the same as the regular Panini ones, it's just the design on the backing sheet that is different. 42. Fulvio Collovati (Italy) 134. Michel Renquin (Belgium) 142.
