Val 'Footer' Gum Lewis Stoker

Klene Val 'Footer' Gum card #35 Lewis Stoker, published in 1939. Stoker joined Forest from Birmingham City, making his debut in August 1938. He made only 11 league and one county cup appearances for the reds before retiring from football in December 1938. As far as I know this is the only Forest card to feature Stoker.
Klene is a Dutch confectioner based in Rotterdam, hence the card being printed in Holland.

Waddington Top Trumps Nottingham Forest Chris Woods

Waddington Top Trumps Nottingham Forest card game unnumbered card Chris Woods, published during season 1979/80. The card's statistics don't do Woods any favours, as he played in all but one of the league cup ties in 1977/78 gaining a winners medal following the 1-0 replay win against Liverpool.

Wizard Football Towns and their Crests Nottingham

The Wizard Football Towns and their Crests unnumbered card Nottingham, Luton, Methil and Camberwell published by DC Thomson in 1931. A rather unusual issue, with four town and city crests on the front and their associated football clubs on the reverse. Nottingham features both Forest and Notts County, along with Luton Town, East Fife (Methil) and Corinthians (Camberwell). It would appear that the latter three were without nicknames at the time.

Panini Calciatori 79-80 Trevor Francis

Panini Calciatori 79-80 sticker #307 Francis, from Panini's Italian league album. I don't know the grounds for Francis's inclusion, but being the first million pound transfer in February 1979 and then scoring the winning goal in the European Cup final three months later provide a couple of plausible reasons.
