Sticky: Book Discussion Post.
DIVER & AGUILAR HAVE DONE IT AGAIN.
Another stunning batch of photos of the boys, this time with a vintage theme.

Diver & Aguilar:
 In 1871 the American company of Allen and Ginter began inserting pieces of card to protect the cigarettes from being damaged. It was not long before tobacco companies had the idea of printing advertisements on these cards, or "stiffeners" as they were called in the trade. In about 1876 companies began producing a series of cards that the smoker could collect. It was believed that this would encourage the smoker to continue using that particular brand.

The tobacco companies discovered that these sporting cards were a great way to obtain brand loyalty. In 1896 the first football set appeared. Footballers & Club Colours was published by Marcus & Company, a small firm in Manchester. These cards are extremely rare and individual cards are valued at £170. This is true of all the early football sets that were issued at this time: Footballers & Club Colours (Kinner, 1898); Footballers (J. F. Bell, 1902); Footballers (F. J. Smith, 1902) and Footballers (Percy E. Cadle, 1904). The cost of individual cards of these sets vary from £40 to £160.

In 1902 W.D. & H.O. Wills published a set of 66 football cards. This included George Clawley (Tottenham Hotspur), Matt Kingsley (Newcastle United), George Hedley (Sheffield United), Jimmy Crabtree (Aston Villa), Ernest Needham (Sheffield United) and Fred Spiksley (Sheffield Wednesday). Interestingly, most of the players were photographed in suits.
For the 2011-2012 La-Liga Season, Diver & Aguilar have recreated these vintage style cards with the first team squad of FC Barcelona,including Lionel Messi, who for the third year running has been voted World Player of the year & Pique,Xavi,Ineista and Puyol European and World Cup & Club Champions of Spain.


Justin Bieber packed the Palau Sant Jordi for his concert on Wednesday, despite it being on the same day as Barça v Shakhtar, and watched them train today after admitting that he is a fan of the team.

The 17 year old Canadian even donned the team’s second strip and appeared on the pitch at the Ciutat Esportiva, kicking the ball around and even joining in with a quick game with some of the players once it was over.

Miño in goal

In that game, Justin Bieber, Thiago and Benja played against one of the singer’s friends, Bojan and Fontàs. All played into the same goal defended by Rubén Miño, and Bieber showed surprisingly decent skills with his left foot.
