Just a quick post today to show off a soccer card I got from COMC recently. It’s a card of Norwich City’s Dave Stringer, which has nothing to do with why I got it. As you can guess from looking at it, I bought it because I’m fascinated by the 1975/76 Topps Footballers set which shares the front design with one of my favorite baseball sets, 1975 Topps.
Norwich City is called the Canaries, and are currently in the English Football League Chamionship, which is one level below the Premier League.
Dave Stringer was a long-time player for the Canaries, and later managed the team.
As you can see, the backs are nothing like the 1975 Topps Baseball backs.
This is the second card I have from this red-backed English set; I also have four from the blue-backed Scottish set.
