Crescent Confectionery - CRE-100 Sportsmen


1928
CRE-100 / CRM-3 Sportsmen
Crescent Confectionery
100

These are very rare cards. Crescent Confectionery issued a number of sets of cards. One set containing only Footballers ran to 100 cards, were unnumbered and had a design on the backs. There was also 10 series of 10 cards with each series concentrating on a specific sport (see http://cartophilic-info-exch.blogspot.co.uk/search/label/Crescent%20Confectionery). This collection of Sportsmen is similar in style to those in the series of 10, and has plain backs. Apparently there are 47 footballers in this collection.
UPDATE (20-11-2016 12:03):  Thanks to Steve Flemming for providing some additional information relating to the cricket cards in this collection.
