Panini is the brand name of the Italian company who are based in Modena and named after the Panini brothers Giuseppe and Benito Panini, having previously run the Panini Brothers Newspaper Distribution Agency (1955).

Panini became famous in the 1960s for its football collections, which soon became objects of wide interest and are now considered a juvenile cultural phenomenon. Rare stickers (figurine) can reach very high prices on the collectors' market.

Postcard : West Ham United B17/6 61672

In 1927 The London and North Eastern Railway (LNER) commissioned Sir Nigel Gresley to design a steam locomotive for hauling passenger services on the Great Eastern Main Line. In a ten year period a total 73 of the Class B17 were built. In July 1937 Locomotive 61672 was built and served the railway lines between London and Cambridge, Ipswich and Norwich for 13 years. By September 1950 most of the surviving member classes were rebuilt with boilers that had increased pressure and were designated class B17/6, 25 such locomotives were also named after football clubs including West Ham United. By March 1960 none of the class had survived into preservation, a few football clubs were presented with the name plates after the locomotives were scrapped. The name plate was photographed outside the old West Stand and was on display up until 2001 when the ground was redeveloped.

9. Bobby Moore

Descriptive back:

England captain and World class Half Back, Bobby Moore led his "Hammers" to victory in European Cup Winners Cup last season.

Typhoo tea was launched in 1903 by John Sumner Jr. of Birmingham. Sumner’s criteria for choosing his brand name was, it had to be distinctive and would trip off the tongue. The name Typhoo derives from the Chinese word for “doctor”.


Typhoo was the first brand of tea to be sold pre-packaged rather than loose over the counter. In order to encourage his customers to purchase his tea Sumner inserted circulars into the tea packets to highlight its benefits. The company introduced cards on the side of their tea packets from the 1920s onwards on a variety of subjects like wild flowers, British history and characters from Shakespeare.


Football cards first appeared on the packets in 1963, and for the 1969-70 season Bobby Moore was one of a series of 24 International Football Stars. The quality and condition of these clipped from packet collectables, depends very much on the person who initially cut the cards. Some were cut neat to the borders with the accompanying text, while others were just snipped around the player only. Collectors were encouraged to return to Typhoo any 12 from the series in exchange for a larger colour version of your chosen player.
