1930's Football Autograph book

Contributed by Marc Mywordes

An autograph book from the 1930's containing autographs of the footballing stars and teams of the time (Manchester Utd and City to name two). Most famously the England and Wales signatures from the match at Ninian Park on the 29th Sept 1934 which was Sir Stanley Matthews first international. My grandfather was an FA referee and ran the line on that day. Many names I don't recognise, but it does also include two involved in the 1958 Munich air crash - Frank Swift and Matt Busby.
