Fun With Football

This 1968 Topps card of Tom Beer came from the pile of cards I grabbed at my LCS a month ago. Cost me a quarter and it goes in my Houston Cougar alum binder. I was looking though that stack the other day and this card nagged at me. It sure looks like an English football (soccer) card.

Sure enough it's the same design as the 1969 A&BC set, several of which I received from Mark Hoyle and posted awhile back.

Those two comapanies had a working relationship and some designs from Topps US issues showed up on English soccer cards. This sort of stuff fascinates me for some reason.
