In 1936 it was just a joke that sportsmen might provide live broadcasts as they were taking part in an event.  Here a Muratti card from a set about the 1936 Olympic games.  Nowadays with helmetcams and things it's quite normal.

It is ahead of its time

Cards/Sets Wanted / Re: Gossage and Wills' Irish Wanted

You're doing well if you're only short of the Robin :) For whatever reason some of the higher 40s in this set are incredibly tough to find. I'll keep my eyes peeled for you for this one but it shouldn't be nightmare to get hold of.

No idea. I recall it took sometime to finish this set which I did several years ago and the cards needed seemed sequential but finished it ok. Have 12 swaps but not no 16.

What a stroke of luck.  I hope you find the third one one day.  Thanks for sharing them with us.

Yes folks lightning can indeed strike twice in the same place!!!

The wonderful land downunder has come up with the goods again, with the rare Ogden's Cricketers & Sportsmen golf cards Vardon and Hilton being unearthed in Australia for the second time. Pity the Laidley card wasn't there to make the trifecta, but 2 out of 3 isn't too bad I guess. A real thrill to add these to my collection, which normally only consists of cricket cards.

Hope you all enjoy viewing what has to be amongst the rarest of golf cards, and spur us all on knowing that there are great cards still out there to find!! Happy hunting to you all.

Really???
That would be a real shame, and should Topps bid for it, it would mean a monopoly of the card market in Europe, which wouldn't be good news for the wallet!
Agreed.
Topps are already screwing every last penny out of collectors with their ridiculous 'parallel' cards and their relentless releases of Topps Now, On Demand and other series.
I'm just glad that I don't support one of the "Big Six" because their players feature heavily in every new release.
As predicted many, many years ago now, the EPL is simply a licence to print money.
It certainly lives up to its nickname, "The Greedy League", in every way possible.

I've been going through some of my old notes and came across this entry, I think it's some sort of League Ladder.
