A to Z of Football Collectibles, An: From Priceless Soccer Cigarette Cards to Sought-After Stickers [9781785315602]

(1 review) Write a Review

An illustrated history of football trade cards, an epic saga of 1,000 brands and myriad collections.

The A-Z traces the earliest cards and stickers - British inventions, both - through a century of sports cards from tobacco cards to Panini stickers, via everything that came in between: footballers issued with chewing gum and sweet cigarettes, lucky bag mementos, football teams cut from packets of tea, and many more.

It chronicles the epoch of our forefathers and the very first football cards, dating back to the 1880s, followed by the era of their children and the earliest stickers - and so the rise of cigarette cards and paper soccer star adhesives.

These days, along with our Panini stickers and trading cards, we appreciate these vintage treasures not only for their beauty but also for their value.

Fond recollections of childhood passions past and present will warm hearts, while enchanting galleries of rarely seen cards will captivate football fans and collectors alike.

Incorporating a guide to values, the A-Z is priceless.

Even more of an interest to the dedicated football team enthusiast eager to find rare and unusual items about their team. Look forward to the next book expanding on this theme.
