A HW reference book, showing photographs of teams is a project I'm working on.

I've been collecting photographs for a it, for a few years now. It will never be definitive, as has been spoken about in previous posts, but hopefully it will show many different teams in one large bound coffee table size book.

Finding the photographs and taking them is half the fun. Adds to a side of my collecting.

It will be a fair few years away yet...a project for when I retire maybe.
Good luck getting over 2,000+ images Ian, its a job and a half, but a true labour of love, fun but frustrating at the same time
Never going to get everything mate...but it's fun trying and keeps me loving the hobby.

I guess people trying to retro-collect have a start point, but subbuteo, much like panani albums, scalextric cars, airfix etc.... It's a bloody minefield of variants, as opposed to actual catalogued numbers....

Its all about knowing yer stuff....

It was until I trod on my external hard drive with all the photos on Paul. Wouldn't work...years of photos lost I thought. Thankfully it repaired phew lol...

I had a mishap a few years ago, so now every time I take a batch of pics I instantly download them onto a disc.
When I get time, I shall send you some info on some teams etc

What's in your 58, Ralph ?

1-55 plus the red, amber and black 18, chestband 40 and what ? I can't think of the other - black shorts 28 ?

you forgot Mr Lloyd's team ref 54 ... mind if you want to be picky Bradford City ref 23 comes in a clear Red stripe and a Claret on't thin fellas just like the heavyweight versions ... then as you say the 6/28 question and the two 49s so on reflection it could be 61 ? :? :lol:

The reference book looks fantastic. I just ordered a copy of both volumes via Astrobase.
