Save 12% / Save 20% +Insured s/h! How? INFO

SAVE 12% OFF all cards - pay with "Friends & Family"

SAVE 20% OFF all cards - pay cash

To save 12%, to get 12% off all prices on this website and also to get FREE insured s/h, just ask how to pay using "friends & family" (Paypal's 'trusted person' option), or cash, off site and you'll get this saving. Agree the price with me then use Paypal 's "trusted person / friends & family" option. It's easy.

Minimum purchase necessary for the SAVE 12% & SAVE 20% deals is £50 GBP. 

Yes, you did read this correctly. You get FREE insured registered mail if you pay cash (save 20% on all cards) or pay by "friends & family" - save 12% off all list prices on this website, on any card or cards, no matter the price. No upper limit! 

After we've agreed the cards and you make the payment I will deal with the insurance. I insure your cards using this service:  

So, you get all the insurance you need. Your cards are insured for their full value, and can be insured all the way up to $90k! 

For other buyers, for buyers who prefer to pay full price for their cards, nothing changes. Buyers buying on site through the checkout will pay 100% full price and they'll also pay 100% full price for shipping. For them all remains the same as it was before.

For the buyers who wish to save money, and get FREE insured registered mail at the same time, write to me at cards AT rarecards DO co DOT uk

I have been doing this for years. I've sent many 1000s of packets like this. I never lost one. It's easy and it has a 100% success rate. Also, you don't get high customs fees, if any at all! I know how to send your packet by insured registered mail without you having to pay to receive it.

So, however you pay, the cards are sent by international registered mail, from France (100% success rate, 30 years sending, no losses ever). It takes around about 3 weeks to USA; up to 4 weeks to Australia, up to 2 weeks to GB/UK/Europe. 

To reiterate, if you do not wish to save 12% of your money, and if you do not wish to get free s/h that's fine. Just go straight to checkout and pay the full price and the full  p&p / s/h is added on automatically there.

For the 12% savings discount on any amount of cards, write to me. We agree the deal. You pay. I ship.

2. MORE THAN 12% / 20% off? It may be possible for very large orders

Please remember, if you ask for heavier discounts, more than 12% off for "F&F" or more than 20% off for cash, it has to be a great deal for me (such as a total in the thousands) or else I am liable to say no and to raise prices after unsuccessful haggling. I do this to pay me myself for my time lost on many of these 'journeys'.  Time is worth more than money and all cards will sell, sooner or later, anyway; and values (and prices) are always going up all the time.

I do not raise prices during serious and sincere inquiries but I may do if people waste my time with offers which never materialize or which are too low; or by asking me to reserve cards they never come back for. That happens once. Then I no longer reply to their Emails. Please remember, I treat respect with respect. I won't mess you around and I won't rip you off. 30+ years experience.


Prices showing "£0.00" are on sold cards - someone else got there first. 


No "Echeques"! Echeques (typically Paypal E-cheques / E-checks) come with unconfirmed addresses and they are a disaster for sellers, 2 months to clear then all the risk so I no longer take Echeques, not even Paypal Echecks.You can send me cash, I take USD, GBP, EUROS, Yen and RU Rubles (to be agreed by Email, first) or you can send .999 silver coins, to be agreed by Email. Or, you can pay using commercial Paypal on site, at 100% full cost, plus postage s/h at full cost. Or, you can  SAVE 15% and get FREE insured registered s/h using  "friends & family"  off site - just ask me.

If you pay "f&f", cash or silver I can send anywhere, even to unconfirmed addresses and to P.O. boxes - as long as there are no postal sanctions in place.


...the GOLDEN RULE is ALL CARDS ARE "SOLD AS SEEN". This means you get what you see.

The seller of these antique & vintage, rare football soccer cards is the creator of the 1990s journal, "Football Card Collector Magazine", and writer of 2019's runner-up to 'Best British Sports Book 2020' award; and 2021's "An A-Z of Sporting Collectibles" book. With this background and history he is well-known and trusted. Most of the cards here are spares from the seller's own life-long collection, put together over 5 decades. Photos show backs & fronts of cards. Details below the photos describe the cards but "images rule". This means the image is what you get. So, all cards are SOLD AS SEEN. Most cards on this website are 1-off exemplars. When they are sold they are gone forever.
