Top Sellers, Football - puzzle cards

Top Sellers was the company named used by Panini to enter the English football cards market. Beginning in 1972 they produced interesting 'Football' cards and albums using the names Football 72, Football 73 etc. One of the more interesting innovations was the use of 'jigsaw puzzle' cards which, when put together, formed an action or team picture. This page aims to record these puzzle cards and to display the completed puzzles. If you are confused by the numbering system for these cards the trick to know is that the number corresponds to the page number in the album e.g. 59C is the third card in the puzzle on page 59!
