I have a large number of checklists almost ready to publish on this blog but I always like to use at least one picture to go with it. I thought I would create this page as an appeal for help in providing scans that I can use to go with the checklists.

Somportex - Famous Football Flags - 7" pole, flags about 4" x 2" (from the early 1970's)


  1. what are the letters in front of the numbers such as U,MA,

  2. I'm guessing that you mean the TRADE REFERENCES used by the Cartophilic Society to identify individual sets.

  3. Hi can you please help me find out more information about how to find out about some Manchester United official history photographs.there is 160 exclusive photos from 1908 to 1998 copyrighted by Magic Box Int1997 thanks for any help in advance

    1. Hi Linsay,

      I've got the checklist on my blog and scans of the two checklist sheets that were included in the packets. You can find it here:

      Magic Box International - Manchester United Official History Photograph Collection 1878-1998

      I hope this helps,
