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!! 🙂
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.
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.
