Typhoo put the ‘T’ in big massive FooTball Cards

These were a little before my time but I always liked the look of Typhoo’s football sets…

This advert is for the second series of International Football Stars, and you had to send off 12 Typhoo packet tokens for one of these 10″ x 8″ works of art.

If you wanted the whole set of 24 then you were going to have to drink a hell of a lot of tea, unless your Mam was a Char Lady in a factory…

Details of all the sets that Typhoo produced can be found on the peerless Nigel’s Webspace – Galleries of English Football Cards.

If you ever cut th etokens out and sent them off to Typhoo then you should probably buy the retro-footy-grumble-fest ‘Got, Not Got’… runner-up in this year’s Footy Book of the Year, and this Xmas’s must-have stocking filler. Available from branches of WH Smith and Waterstones or online here
