13:XI:17 the above blue-black colours STOKE Sharpe's card is c.1878-1883.
Neither this card nor the oval card of Bolton Wanderers, as shown on TV, on
14 November 2017, were the very first cards - no matter what TV says - but they
they were close to first! Soccer cards were first made in the 1870's, in England.
Soccer stickers were first made in 1914, in Scotland!  And, no matter what TV
tells you, Italians did not invent the packet of soccer cards in 1960. It's a lie.
It was yet another British invention, patented by John Baines 70 years earlier.

MUCH much more to come in my book ... watch the above blogs for more news
