1971 No.48, 1980 No.5 and Follyfoot Special 1973...

Bumper bundle time with 3...count em...three! full issues. from 1971 we have No.48, we also have No.5 from 1980 and...and!...our old mate Dan has come up trumps again with the full Follyfoot Special from 1973, so a big thanks to him.  I'm so grateful to receive this, as it's the first time I've ever seen it in it's entirety,  I never bought it back in the day, don't know why, I did really like Follyfoot.  I've tried to get it more recently but it always goes for silly money, such is it's rarity and the popularity of the series.  Anyway you can see it right here and now, enjoy...
