Football Snaps - Famous Footballers


1940s
Famous Footballers
Football Snaps
2 sets of 48 cards

These cards were issued in small packets, see illustration. Even though it states a series of 48 Famous Footballers, there seems to be two different cards for each number. The story goes, that these were only available at newsagents in the Nottingham area.
I'd be grateful to hear from anyone who can fill in any gaps in the checklist, or who has any further information.
