OK, so they are not football
cards, but they are attractive and collectable.The jam jar lids were produced
for Cadbury Schweppes Foods Ltd., Bournville, Birmingham while the images
on the lids were provided by Coffer, with an inscription on each lid saying
© Coffer, London. The jam jar lids fit into a folder (pictured below) which
names them as 'Hartleys Football Stars 1971-72'. So, Cadbury or Hartley's?
In late 1972 or early 1973 Cadbury Limited began offering
a set of five circular stickers if you sent away 8 wrappers from Cadbury
Fudge bars. The five featured players were Martin Chivers, Allan Clarke,
Kevin Keegan, Rodney Marsh and Bobby Moore.
A set of stickers slowly coming to light.
There were originally thought to be five in the set, but now perhaps
up to 30? They are similar in style to the five featured above.
These are very rare, so perhaps they were only issued by Cadbury in Scotland?
