ESSO Top Team player discs

One of my own personal early football memories was this set of coins being available at  ESSO stations and playing 'nearest the wall' in the playground. The Kenny Dlaglish side-on image always stayed with me for some reason!

As well as the coins themselves the set also had player stickers inside the wrappers. These came in pairs and there is a rare alternate pair to find as Keegan appears to have been originally omitted.

The usual pairings of images are - Bell/Bremner, Chivers/Dalglish, England/Gray, Hay/Hughes, Hunter/James, Jennings/Keegan, Lorimer/MacDonald, Madeley/Marsh, McFarland/Moore, Peters/Shilton, Storey/Toshack and also Jennings/Moore.

The mixed pairs are Jennings/Moore, Jennings/Keegan and McFarland/Moore.
