Reg, who died recently (2014) aged 94, was born within four miles of Trent Bridge and our cricket correspondent Michael Pearce is preparing a tribute article. They are all pictured in black and white head and shoulders photos and a miniature colour caricature inset bottom left. Career stats on the backs. Size 89 x 64mm.

J.F.Sporting Collectibles Football Popular Footballers 1970s 9th Series 2008 Popular Footballers 1970s 9th Series 2008 LT36 - ‘Popular’ doesn’t always equate to ‘success’ – witness no. 10 in this card series of colour head and shoulders photo portraits - where we see Gary Collier, Coventry City’s central defender. Signed from Bristol City in 1979, he made just two appearances for the club, both ending in defeat, before moving to the USA where he spent five seasons – just one of the interesting stories related on the backs of these cards. ‘Popular’ in the crowd-pleasing sense, we see Spurs’ Argentine World Cup star Ossie Ardiles a member of the club’s 1981 F.A. Cup winning team which beat Manchester City whose centre-forward Steve MacKenzie also features in this set. Size 89 x 64mm.
