Congratulations on navigating your way to my website dedicated to the Taddy ‘Prominent Footballers’ cards of the early 20th century. Hopefully you will find something here of interest, even if it’s only your own team cards. Encouraged by long-time collector and enthusiast Matt Stevens, my aim is to present images of every card available together with any varieties and all of the different verso or ‘back’ designs. This will, of course, take time, but I am already on the way; please be patient. You will also notice that many of the images that I have used are not of the best quality; this is simply because I don’t own any of these cards and I am dependent upon picking up images from the internet, so if you can produce good quality (300 dpi) scans of these cards please contact me and we’ll get them up on here to do the job in double-quick time!
In the meantime, you could do a lot worse than look up my ‘PINNACE’ football card website which IS complete … 😉
PLEASE BE AWARE THAT THIS SITE IS STILL VERY MUCH
I must apologise to anyone wondering why it is taking so long to upload all the remaining images for the last three or four teams. It’s because it’s proving rather tough to find really good images of all of the cards; they’re not always readily available and so it’s worth the wait to make sure that I get the best possible ones out there.
Patience is a virtue … but I want mine now! 🙂
‘The cards – at auction …’ is a new section designed to give an insight into the various prices that many of the cards in this series will sell for. Some will be absolutely jaw-dropping, others will no doubt be downright silly; you can decide for yourself as I add them in the months to come.

The Swindon Town team is now complete, the ‘London Mixture’ cards having been uploaded today.
Nearly there now … 🙂
The fourteen cards that make up the Portsmouth set of the ‘London Mixture’ issue have now been uploaded. The image that I have used here is very pertinent as it shows the great-grandfather of a friend of mine.
Only a few to go now. 🙂
Liverpool collector George Rowlands has been in touch with the interesting little story of how he has collected most of the Liverpool cards and he also has a plea for help to find the ones that he is missing.
Cheers, George! 🙂
Following in the footsteps of Neil Reynolds and his tales about collecting the West Bromwich Albion cards, comes Harry Greenmon, a ‘Boro fan and collector. You can read all about his efforts to track down the thirty-four cards for his team by clicking HERE.
Thanks, Harry! 🙂
Brighton & Hove Albion and Manchester City are the latest teams to be completed, leaving just seventy-nine cards to go, spread across six teams.
There IS light at the end of my tunnel! 🙂
Edited to save my mathematical blushes 🙂
