NOLU historic badge series: Cold Blow Lane 1910

The 'Cold Blow Lane 1910' design is inspired by the front page of the matchday programme printed for the very first game at The Den between Millwall and Brighton & Hove Albion in 1910. The badge is 25mm from the top of the footballer figure's head to the base of the plinth and once again uses a 'butterfly' clasp on the rear. The main wording says simply 'Millwall' with the words 'Cold Blow Lane' above and '1910' below. To the bottom right is the regular NOLU label. The kit is close the authentic colours of the day - dark blue shirts, white shorts and black stockings.

This is the second in our MFC 125 / 100 anniversary series and follows on from the limited edition Dockers badge which is now completely sold out. This is a very nice and may I say - discreet - badge and one which I'm very proud to be able to produce in NOLU's name.

Once again we are asking for £5 for these badges and - as always with NOLU - this is being done entirely for charity (after production and postage costs). The beneficiary charities this time being the NSPCC and Cancer Research to be donated via the Deloitte page on Just Giving - - I hope that you will agree that these are worthy causes. I will post the final charity donation when achieved on the Millwall message boards.

There are two ways to get your copy of the 1910 badge:

* By Pay Pal – please forward £5 per badge to - please remember to include a postal address.

* By cheque – made payable to Nick Hart c/o NOLU, PO Box 62554, London E6 9GH remember to include your address as above.

All postal orders will be mailed next day (and will properly taped and bubble wrapped this time ... ahem). Any queries, please either email or post on this thread and I’ll answer as soon as possible.
