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 kind of information and history that I can find. This will, of course, take time, but I am already well on the way; please be patient.
In the meantime, you could do a lot worse than look up my ‘PINNACE’ football card website which IS complete … 😉
I am grateful to Manchester City fan and collector Brian Houghton for sharing his collecting experiences with us. Click the link to read his story and also to see if you can help him in his quest for the missing cards.
It’s taken a few weeks but I now have a complete sub-set of Manchester Utd. images, leaving only a very few teams to go. More as and when I receive them.
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! 🙂
