V.C.C. - Sportsmen and Other Notabilities II ~ Unnumbered (06)


1922
VAA-030 Sportsmen and Other Notabilities II ~ Unnumbered
V.C.C., 71 Roman Road, London, E3
72 cards (24 Footballers)

It's been a while since I've been able to include something new in relation to these cards. Roger Pashby has provided scans of this Chelsea card that he's recently acquired. Just in case anyone is interested in buying the card, Roger has asked me to add a link to the contact page of his website - The Huddersfield Town Collection/Contact.
These are not actually V.C.C. cards as the V.C.C. cards are numbered and printed on the back, but as the cards are probably produced by the same printer I've labelled them as V.C.C. so that they appear in the index with the proper V.C.C. cards. I thought I'd pull everything together from the previous posts so that the cards that are numbered in the numbered set are shown here along with the three cards that probably fit somewhere in the series of 24 cards, plus all the known variations.
