Football Special & Sporting Pictorial - (FOO-090/FOA-1) Real Autographs of Famous Sportsmen


1920's
(FOO-090/FOA-1) Real Autographs of Famous Sportsmen 
Football Special & Sporting Pictorial
Football & Sports Favourite
Sports Fun
29+7+ cards

Collectors needed to obtain vouchers from each of the three magazines in any one week to be able to send for an autograph. I presume the list of available autographs is the same across all three issues in any one week. The list here shows the 29 sportsmen available for the week of 19 August, 1922. I don't know how many weeks the offer ran for or how much the list of sportsmen varied from one week to the next, but I have seven additional names not included in the 19 August issues.
Your Editor has arranged with many famous sportsmen to present their REAL AUTOGRAPHS to readers of "SPORTS FUN," "FOOTBALL SPECIAL" and "FOOTBALL FAVOURITE."
No printed copies, mind you, but REAL AUTOGRAPHS. The player's own signature on a suitable card.
This week your Editor offers you the personally signed AUTOGRAPHS of any of the following famous sportsmen:
Three coupons, one from this page and two similar ones which you will find in this week's issues of "FOOTBALL SPECIAL" and "FOOTBALL FAVOURITE," will secure you any of the above signatures, or you may have all the autographs offered provided you send three coupons for each one.
