    I think you are right about the bank notes with these cards

    https://www.cardboardconnection.com/1962-topps-civil-war-news-trading-cards

    Nevertheless, there was a collection of some sort that involved half a bank note that had to be matched with its partner ....

    ....anybody????

    I dismantled the television gantry you can see opposite when steve borley was chairman because when the seats were installed on the bob bank the gantry was restricting the view of 500 seats so it had to go.
    I can assure you what follows is a true story and both steve borley and wayne nash will back this up.
    i did it obviously out of season but on the saturday i started doing it the jehovahs were at the ground painting and sprucing the place up for their annual convention at the ground. so by the time i had finished dismantling it it was late afternoon on the saturday all the steelwork was laying between the seats. now as i was having my breaks they kept coming up to me with drinks and trying to fob their pamphlets off on me to read.
    as i was leaving for the day with the intention of coming back the next morning mob handed to get the steel out of the ground they approached me again with their fucking pamphlets but the one guy said is there anything we can do to help you brother. so with my best straight face i said well it would be handy if you got that steelwork from between the seats brother and put it outside the gates for collection and with that i walked off before i pissed myself.
    lo and behold i arrived at 8am sunday morning and every bit of steelwork was outside the ground and where i had been working was spotless. over they came pleased as punch with themselves with more pamphlets and a couple of free tickets to attend that week.
    being as i was working on the club ground i thought to keep those tickets for myself when in fact legally they belong to the club i gave them to wayne nash for him to use. to this day i dont think the athiest bastard went though

    Remember the old cooling towers where Sainsbury’s is now?

    My dad’s office was nearby and took me along to watch them being demolished.
