Badges

The vast majority of these badges are official ones and are marked as such. I don’t usually make a point of buying unofficial badges unless they are celebrating a particularly important match although you will see that I do have one or two made for League games.

The reference numbers (e.g. AFBC Ref: HUD34) are from the Association of Football Badge Collectors catalogue.


Huddersfield Town Supporters & Patrons Club badges

General badges, quite possibly in date order …

The 1950s and 1960s

A014  B015  C016  D017

A = Almost certainly an unofficial 1950s plastic badge of Willie Davie
B = 1960s official
C = Unofficial 1960s tin badge; could possibly be early 1970s.
D = 1960s tin badge which was only available from Gamages in London, late 1960s


The 1970s

A = 1970 Rare unofficial Swedish plastic stick-pin
B = 1970 Rare unofficial Znak Brno of Czechoslovakia stick-pin
C = Early 1970s official by Fattorini of Bradford
D = Unofficial ‘Gomm’
E = Official early 1970s
F = Unofficial 1970 or 1971 tin badge
G = Official 1970-1971 by Reeves (AFBC Ref: HUD3)
H = Official? 1970-1971? by Reeves?: I’m not convinced that this is genuine; I think that this is far more likely to be a 2011 product; I don’t remember seeing these although the large ones were certainly around back then – I had one!
I = Official 1970-71 tin badge; very hard to find nowadays
J & K = Unofficial c1971 tin badges; must be about this date as Town were in the top division then
L = Official 1970-71
M = Official 1970-71 by Coffer

H038  I039  J040  K041  L042

A = Official early 1980s (AFBC Ref: HUD5)
B = Official (AFBC Ref: HUD9) It really is this small!
C, D and E = I am honestly unsure about these; I think that thtey are all unofficial and could possibly be even later than the 1980s
F = Official 1988-90
G = Unofficial? 1988-90 – a strange one; it’s exactly the same as the previous badge except that it has blue sleeves – Town have never played in all-blue sleeves which leads me to question its validity.
H = Probably official; I can only presume that this badge was produced to mark the ‘Walk Around the Pitch’ fund-raiser of 1984. In addition, this badge is shown in much-reduced size; it’s actually 7cm in diameter!
I = Official (AFBC Ref: HUD4)
J & K = Probably unofficial
L = Official 1989-90 season
