My Book


Since this book was written and published in 2008 further research into the date of issue for many of these cards has come to light, thus rendering inaccurate some of the information, but usually only by a year either way. Unfortunately it is inevitable that ongoing research might have the same effect, but this should not detract from your enjoyment in reading my book.

You’ve visited the website and enjoyed the cards – now buy the book!

coverFilled with 147 picture cards from this site – in black and white and glorious colour too – this is your chance to enjoy the cards in the comfort of your armchair or in the pub before the match.

Page after page of fantastic Town players from a bygone age jump out to remind you of either a golden era or yet another season of misery!

Thirty-six A5 glossy pages filled with player pictures make this a CHAMPION gift for all Town fans, young and old.

Listen to dad and granddad as they reminisce over players that they remember gracing the Leeds Road pitch and then sigh over which cards they remember owning!

page2Each card or sticker is accompanied by interesting text, outlining the history of the player and the card itself. In most cases you will learn where the player came from and where he went to, how many games he played and the number of goals that he scored. I have even provided some information about international and representative appearances!

Details as to when each card was issued and to which series it belonged are alongside every illustration and in some cases you will even learn a little about the history of card-collecting in general – and its very expensive nature!

Slight error with the “Victorian Baines cards” but thanks, Gerry. (I presume that this is the same Gerry Wolstenholme from the article above)
