The news that we’ve all been waiting for – I have completed ALL of the basic KF images for this site! All 2462 players are now included on here, with a few variations to boot! It’s been a long time coming, but with the help of mainly Peter, Matt, Alan and Mark we’ve managed to get the job done! My heartiest congratulations go out to us all on this fantastic achievement!
Now the race is on to find all of the variations and replace some of the really crap quality ones that I have used. I’ve already begun this process and have today replaced 30+ using far better scans from eBay where there are some really nice examples. Now is the time for all of those of you out there who have variations to come forward with them; scan them as straight as possible at 300dpi and then CONTACT ME.
Come on, chaps – LET’S DO THIS!! 🙂
Two of the cabinet ‘GF’ team cards went under the hammer today at Loddon Auctions. The first, one of two featuring Huddersfield Town, sold for £550 whilst the other, featuring Tottenham Hotspurs, went for a surprisingly low £400, although I’m told that it did have a pinhole in it. I would have loved to have bought the HTAFC card but I knew fine well that I would never be able afford it. For each of the two cards mentioned here you can add almost one-third of the price again to cover auction fees, VAT and then online-bidding costs and postage. Criminal! 😲
I have added almost 400 new LF cards to the spreadsheet, the vast majority of which are ones with no team named and have the “Address Pinnace” variety of back. Click the picture to download the file.
I am eternally grateful to collector Alan Worthington who has supplied me with his Excel spreadsheet which allows us to check what ‘backs’ were available across this vast collection. You can download a copy to your device for personal use but you will not be able to alter it in any way as I have protected it. Should you find any other variations not contained with in it, please let me know and I’ll alter it and ping out a newer version.

Collector George Rowlands has contacted me to say that he is now willing to pay £200 each for the two Cabinet cards of Liverpool players 839. T.J. Bromilow and 2019. R. Forshaw. Time to get looking!!
My grateful thanks go to fellow collector Robert Mitchell who kindly supplied me with card 1884. J. Porter (Bury). As I no longer get to card fairs because of where I live – out in the middle of nowhere! – I am often dependent upon others alerting me to availability or, as in this case, contacting me about their spares.
Cheers again, Robert! 👍
George Rowlands has been in touch with me to see if I can facilitate his hoovering up of a few larger sized cards. His ‘wants‘ are listed on the FOR SALE/SWAPS page. Please check to see if you can help him out. 😉
I am grateful to Andy Lear who, whilst sorting through his late father’s collection, came across twenty-four cards that I needed and has kindly supplied them at a decent price. 🙂
As far as I can tell, I think that my list of WANTS is now down to 650, give or take one or two. Almost there in fact…
I am grateful to Nigel Eastman of CardHawk website who points out that he has a cabinet card of 2173 Frank Osborne as a Tottenham Hotspurs player. This might not sound unusual but the k-sized card of him shows him as a Fulham player and I am unaware of the existence of him as a Spurs player in that small sized series. I have included the cabinet image on the Fulham, Spurs and numbered order pages for you to see.
Osborne moved from Fulham to Spurs in 1924 – does anyone out there have a k-sized card of F. Osborne (Tottenham Hotspurs) and would like to share an image, please?
Mark Hughesdon is back, this time with four variations for players of his own team, Luton Town. Each is marginally different to the images already shown on this site.
You can see all of the Luton cards by clicking the image at left. 🙂
As ever, my grateful thanks go to Mark Hughesdon for sending me images of another eight cards which vary ever so slightly from the ones that I have already illustrated. These cards are numbered 959, 960, 961, 964, 965, 966, 969 and 1083; the featured clubs are Corinthians, Bristol City and Arsenal.
