A very attractive set of reverse transfers from around 1966. Two sheets of 24 (Series 1 and 2) were produced (‘Made in England’) by T.P.

Roger Pashby has done some excellent detective work from the galleries to confirm the date as likely to be 1966/67. Here is Roger’s logic, using webpages from the outstanding Historical Football Kits website:
1.  Huddersfield Town (Series 2) are wearing the blue shirt, dating it to 1966/67, 1967/68 or 1968/69.
2. The socks from Hull City (Series 2) confirm the date as between 1965 and 1968.
3.  Ipswich Town (Series 1) played in their blue shorts in 1965/66 and 1966/67, though HFK shows 1966/67 as white socks.
4.  Plymouth Argyle (Series 1) played in their full green strip from 1966 to 1968.
