Ripley Bros. - Football Colours



1923-24
Ripley Bros.
RIP-030 Football Colours
56 known

These cards are very rare. The card shown here was recently for sale on eBay with a starting price of £95. I was hoping to try and date the card by checking when Burnley played in these colours, but when I checked the Historcial Football Kits website it was nowhere to be seen.
Here's a list of known cards, the feature rugby clubs as well as football clubs. If you know of any others please get in touch.
UPDATE (03-12-2017 13:11):  Wigan Boro' added to the list, thanks to Mark Hughesdon. The cards are unnumbered and are numbered here for reference purposes only.
UPDATE (04-12-2017 16:49):  Following further research the date of issue has been amended to 1923-24.
