World Cup Footballer Description:

Following the launch of the Action Footballer in 1968, Palitoy felt obliged to produce a world cup footballer to celebrate the World Champions - England. He was in an all white strip (the catalogue illustration showed blue shorts). Palitoy then decided to expand the footballer range and recreate the 'Famous Football Clubs' major teams from Division 1 of the Football League. A greater range of kit colours were also available on separate cards. With these, one could make up their own favourite teams. A colour Football Book was also sold with key club information, tips and suggested kit combinations (see bottom).
