The news that we’ve all been waiting for – I have completed ALL of the basic 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!! 🙂
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.
Mark Hughesdon has sent me a further seven cards covering just two teams. Grimsby Town and Stockport County are the lucky clubs, although the Stockport images are exceptionally poor – unfortunately that’s what you get when eBay sellers take photos and don’t bother about glare or quality. Ho-hum! 😢
Anyway, the cards are numbered 943, 945, 949, 952, 954, 955 and 958. Click the image at left to see them in the 900-999 range.
I am indebted to Andy Douglas who contacted me today with a variation card of 134. G.H. Douglas, Leicester City. Andy only collects variations on this one specific card, but with very good reason – it’s his grandfather! I love it when relatives get in touch; it must be so wonderful to be able to show people an antique – or any! – football card and be able to say that’s my relative.
Cheers, Andy! 😉
Mark Hughesdon is back after a very brief hiatus with eight more slightly different card images. It has to be said here that I looked very closely at 935. Ted Hughes (Aberdare) and the only difference that I can spot between that and a very similar one already on here is in the patterning of the background. I’ve reproduced them both here – see what you think. Anyway, cards this time are numbered 906, 908, 917, 923 (two of), 926 (two of) and the aforementioned 935, and clubs featured are Queens Park Rangers, Brentford, Southend United, and Aberdare.
Mark Hughesdon has supplied me with a further ten images of variation cards. Numbers on this occasion are 884, 885, 889, 890, 891, 893, 894, 895, 896 and 898 and the teams covered are West Ham Utd., Merthyr Town, Newcastle Utd., Portsmouth and Port Vale.
Today’s selection of variation cards from Mark Hughesdon centres solely upon the Millwall Athletic sub-set. Here are nine cards numbered 845, 846 (three of), 848, 849, 850 (two of) and 851.
I am grateful once more to Mark Hughesdon who has supplied me with nine more variation images. Today’s cards are numbered 838, 839, 840, 841, 843, 870, 875, 878 and 880, and they feature players of Liverpool, Preston North End, Wolverhampton Wanderers, Bristol City and Crystal Palace.
I am grateful once more to Mark Hughesdon for his spotting and sending me nine more images of cards with minor differences. This time the cards are numbered 815, 816, 817, 818, 824, 825, 826, 827 and 831, and the teams covered are Norwich City, South Shields and Swansea Town.
Here are the next ten variation cards as spotted by the ever reliable Mark Hughesdon. This selection bridges the 700s/800s divide. Cards are numbered 739, 753, 755, 780, 781, 783, 784, 788, 798 and 812 and the teams concerned are Stoke, Bristol Rovers, Charlton Athletic, Clapton Orient, Rotherham County and Reading.
