FKS World Cup 1978 Soccer Stamps

Our final FKS stamp collection takes us to the competing nations and players at the 1978 World Cup in Argentina. You might notice something of an anomaly with this particular collection. There are a number of nations, England being the most prominent, who feature here but were nowhere to be seen in the Argentine as ‘they didnae qualify’ (c/o Ally’s Tartan Army by Andy Cameron). Fellow home nation non-participants Wales and Northern Ireland are here too and their inclusion appears to be shameless pandering to the UK market, comfortably FKS’s biggest.

Thanks again to Stuart Clapham for his collaboration on these posts.
