Subbuteo's Rare Items

Soccer Market Cards

These cards were first available in 1948 and were described as "The football game for the odd moment", the game was finally withdrawn in 1964. Although they were available for some 16 years they are very rare and hardly ever turn up. The game comprises of 48 cards split into 4 teams (each with 11 players), some blank cards, an "all rounder" card, and a set of rules all housed in a thin plastic slip case. The four clubs represented are Newcastle, Arsenal, Cardiff and Celtic. Each card has a picture of a player, his playing position on the pitch and a value of between 60,000 and 100,000. The object of the game is for you to manage one of the clubs and lead them to financial success during each round of play.
