The Lightweight 1980-2002

References 101 - 200 

The teams 101-150 were part of the big 1973-74 expansion into European club sides. So these were old teams by the time the lightweight arrived, but most stay in the catalogues for the start of the lightweight era. The World Cup 1970 teams also stay put by and large, many of them getting a machine print for the special boxed World Cup 1982 range.

The English and Scottish club sides of 167-190 fare less well. Teams were beginning to change their strip on a regular basis, and many of these sides were obsolete by 1980.
