The Daily Mail newspaper was first published in 1896. As a football card producer it has very little history, the set below being it's first and perhaps only production.
World Cup Wallchart. In anticipation of the
Mexico 70 World Cup the Daily Mail produced a large colour World Cup Wallchart.
The wallchart has spaces for the 22 members of the England squad. Each space
on the wallchart notes that 'The coupon for this colour picture & biography
will appear in the Daily Mail from April
6th. The set of stickers for the wallchart, available as a single sheet
of glue-backed stickers, actually comprises 28 stickers, the sheet noting
that 'These 28 players are the travelling party for Mexico named by Sir
Alf Ramsey on March 25th. His final squad of 22 will be announced eight
days before the May 31 World Cup kickoff". Each sticker has 'Daily
Mail World Cup Souvenir' printed, plus a player biography.
