Help Needed With Autographs Identification

Hi to All

I have been trying for some time now to Identify faces and Signature's on a 1980/81 season Club sheet sent out origionally for a charity auction.

It has proven to be a difficult 'mission' and I have a few Rovers Fans / mates who all wanted a copy of this, so I had some laser copies done and laminated them for protection.

Between us we I/D'd who we could agree on and discussed a few who we couldn't and so I have left those names out.

The way forward was (or so I thought) to list one on ebay and ask for help from Rovers fans with the Identifications etc.

Well so far, despite me and my mates thinking I would get plenty of folk helping me me out, I havn't received a single email offering such.

I hope this post isn't seen as commercialism as I have read the rules but couldn't see anywhere to ask a mod' in advance.

Anyway, I do genuinely need the help of fellow footy fans as I have hit a brick wall with it.

Surely there will be folk here who can help.

I hope I've done the right thing in placing this here as I realise on the general message board it would be seen by more, but would perhaps be in the wrong place ?

If it would be better there, then perhaps someone more in the know of the rules could transfer it over there or put a link to this post ?

If you do check it out I'm not sure if it will take a few minutes toi download as I have added plenty of pictures.

Even if you can't help I'm sure the Team Pic will stir some great memories.

Here is the link to the auction listing, though you may have to copy and paste it to actually get there ?

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?Vie...E:IT&ih=025

Failing that, the Item number is 380043290980 and you can find this by clicking on advanced search and then search by item number and obviously copying that number into the box.

Hey presto !

So come on Lads (and lasses) ... help me out on this one, or ask the 'statto' that you know.

Thanks in advance for any help as it will be much appreciated.

Number 9 I think will be Noel Brotherston

Number 10 is Viv Busby

Number 11 is John Lowey

ozzie - Thanks a lot mate and I have now ammende3d the Ad,.

That Noel Brotherston sig looked like the old Vision On squiggly thing to me, but then again my eyes are a bit suspect now <_<

Lowey - of course - :rolleyes:

Thanks again

whittle - That was a great help mate and thanks for taking the time for me.

Roger De Vries was also number 2 on the missing sigs, so I was able to eliminate another.

We are baffled by Number 6 on the list which looks like Michael Robinson (possibly Robbinson) - I remember a player of the same name at Liverpool (possibly with a previous Brighton connection) and then at some point he moved to a Spanish Club and now commentates in Spanish football ?

I may have the two mixed up ?

Anyway thanks again for your help mate.

Mickey Speight, if it`s the correct one, used to sign as Michael. Or possibly reserve team striker Mickey Graham. EDIT; I`ve seen which one you mean; It`s Mick Rathbone
