"The 1967–68 season was the 88th season of competitive football in England. Defending First Division champions, Manchester United, became the first English team to win the European Cup, while the First Division title went to their cross city rivals City. West Bromwich Albion lifted the FA Cup this season, for the fifth time in their history. Leeds United finally won a major trophy after nearly 50 years of trying when they lifted the Football League Cup at the expense of an Arsenal side who hadn't played at Wembley for 16 years.

Football League LogoFor the first time since 1937, Manchester City won the First Division, finishing two points clear of their local rivals Manchester United. Fulham finished in last place and were relegated along with Sheffield United. Coventry City, under Jimmy Hill escaped relegation by one point and would go on to stay in the top division until their eventual relegation at the end of the 2000–01 season.

Manchester United's George Best and Ron Davies of Southampton finished as Division One's joint-top scorers with 28 goals apiece. Best was awarded the Football Writers' Association Footballer of the Year, as well as the European Footballer of the Year award."

FKS Soccer Stars 1968 Sticker PacketThe FKS Picture Stamp Albums differ slightly from the traditional sticker album that the rest of the FootballStickipedia.com site covers. The FKS albums mostly feature a 'free-stick' approach, where you get a card of the player, then manually glue the top edge of the back of the player card into your album. The result is that you end up with a page of 'flappy' cards, with player biographies hiding beneath the stuck-in card. Lift up the bottom half of the player and you find the brief biography and a few vital stats.

FKS Soccer Stars 1968 Joe RoyleThe FKS albums were very early days for sticker albums in the UK, The Wonderful World of Soccer Stars Picture Stamp Album 1967-1968 would have cost you 3'6, or three and sixpence. A bargain by today's prices I'm sure! As they were so old/pioneering, there isn't a lot of flair to them. The 1968 picture stamp album has a cardboard outer cover then simple plain pages, one per team in the English First Division clubs. Each page contains a grid work of 15 players, with outlines of where to stick your player and the biography lying within the grid.
