The Wonderful World of Soccer Stars

FKS Publishers were the first and the most famous football sticker producers of the time. Their first album entitled "A Full Colour Picture Gallery of World Cup Stars" was produced in 1967. Sticker and album production run right through to the 1980’s. "The Wonderful World of Soccer Stars" series ran for most of that time, stickers were printed in Spain with a number of the albums printed in England. Each sticker was designed to be glued along the top edge and placed in the appropriate space within the album, allowing the collector to lift the sticker to view the players pen-picture beneath. As with all stickers between this period they were sold in packets in newsagents and sweet shops across the country.

Coloured, numbered series of 330 player portraits. After the success of the test promotion the season before. Player names, club and biography were added to the reverse. Sold in envelope packets containing seven stamps for 6d. Album issued to accompany the series priced 3s 6d.

Issue 2281 - 15 March 1969

The Rover and Wizard comic was issued by D.C.Thomson of Dundee. Throughout the 1950's, 60's and 70's they regularly published colourful photos and sometimes drawings of footballers, or other sportsmen, on the comic cover. Invariably showing 11 footballers per cover, the complete set covers over 700 subjects. The photos were usually cut out by collectors and have now become quite rare.
