A&BC Chewing Gum (English)
Footballer - Yellow backs

My own all-time favourite set of football cards. A neat, classy set with a Football Quiz and Magic Answer on the back. Series 1 comprises cards 1 to 54 (Checklist is card 1), and Series 2 comprises cards 55 to 101 (Checklist card 55).

Pennants

Team pennants folded in the yellow back card packets, hence the folds whenever you see these attractive pennants. The pennants have instructions to 'Cut out Pennant along black line' but thankfully not too many boys seem to have done this. They were issued with Series 1 of the Yellow Backs in 1968.

A&BC Chewing Gum (Scottish)
Footballers - Yellow backs

Similar to the English yellow backs of the same year. Douglas Coakley of A&BC Gum has advised that in 1968 they had terrible trouble in the factory mixing up the English and Scottish cards so after that year they made the two sets different colours each year. Apparently there are a four different versions of each card, where the photograph and text are the same but the Football Quiz questions differ.
