Default Soccer Card resources

As popular as Soccer worldwide I have found it surprisingly difficult to learn about the trading card hobby. My main two sites I have found myself constantly going to belong to two members of the forum.

I have a very modest collection, but have found the research to find out more about the cards very difficult. Are there any great hobby guides that I may be missing?

Andy I am far, far from being up to date on soccer issues but collected them back in the 1980's. The ultimate reference was always the annual catalog issued by the London Cigarette Card Company.

I just checked their website and they are alive and well. Their catalog is available and it will help ID some of the older worldwide sets.

I'm sure our soccer experts will have some other ideas.

Default Soccer Card Reference Books

Hi Andy,
I've been collecting soccer cards for many years and agree that there are not many good guides on the subject. One that I find very helpful is called Half-Time (Football and the Cigarette Card 1890-1940) by David Thompson and published by Murray Cards. It contains small write ups and checklists of most of the soccer card sets issued by tobacco companies. No prices however.

Default Soccer card info

I would recommend a website come blog spot run by a chap called Alan Jenkins.
Try cartophilic-info-exchange blog spot.... Hopefully you will find bags of info on footy cards there. If there are any uk cards you are looking for I can probably help.
Regards
Ian

Andy.

Are you looking for a specific country or just general information? I have found a bunch of stuff. Not easy to find and almost none in English, but still quite helpful.

Best of luck. Let me know if I can help.

Al
