Lincoln Legends Playing Cards

Patrick explains both the cards and the ‘signings’ on them….

In about 2007, Lincoln City produced a set of playing cards to celebrate the Legends of the club. When I bought the cards, I decided to see if I could find all of the players who were still alive, write to then and ask them to sign their card for me.    Some were easier to find than others, but I found (nearly) all of them one way or another. Many sent back interesting letters too, which I still have and some even helped me to find the whereabouts of other players who appeared in the cards who they were still in touch with. I’m happy to send pictures of the signed cards to you. I think I’ve got 39 altogether!

The cards appear below:
