J.BLAIR Blackpool

LITHO type, mid-tone grey card, dark background print, blurry tint type - as issued. MUCH RARER than supposed ... as rare as the 1930s issues AND RARER STILL as these cards have 3 - THREE - varieties. Post war paper supplies, being what they were, were hit and miss; so too was the printing, which is why these appear in at least THREE varieties, on white paper, or on buff-toned grey paper, and with so many types of off-set and litho print styles, dark and light backgrounds, etc. Surely one of the most difficult series to find all varieties of and impossible to complete a full set!

Erstwhile Orient player, Jimmy Blair, here for Blackpool, on the DARK background early type/ mid-grey cardstock type varity of this very rare card. The card has a couple of very light faults, as seen, but is about VERY GOOD  35 includes postage (Europe)

WE DO NOT KNOW who's playing here. The adverts show it's British - YOUNG'S STRONG EXPORT BITTER. It's a Spanish trade card of British action c.1968/70. It came with another Spanish trade calendar card of Leyton Orient, with 1978 FA Cup action, see below.

ArsVorient Here's another one of those very obscure Spanish cards (see the '?Liverpool/Orient?' oddity below for the other one)  here showing Arsenal in that away strip with the blue cannon centre chest (1977/78) versus Leyton Orient (in an unusual home strip?) (also 77/78) at CHELSEA! yes, at Stamford Bridge. It was the F.A.Cup semi-final, when Orient made the last 4, under the legendary Jimmy Bloomfield's guidance. Frank Stapleton and Malcolm MacDonald are seen for The Gunners, and Roeder and Fisher for The O's.

EXCEEDINGLY RARE! 1 only. You won't find this again! Offers chances open for a couple of days 'til I get it properly listed here.
