Boys' Magazine - (BOY-470/BPM-5) Football Series / Football Teams 1922-23

(BOY-470/BPM-5) Football Series / Football Teams 1922-23
Boys' Magazine
10 cards

These are proper cards, rather than the large sheets that I've featured previously.
UPDATE (04-09-2020 11:56):  An e-mail from Nigel at has prompted me to make some amendments and one addition to this checklist. All the cards except the Bolton Wanderers card is titled 'Football Series' but that one states 'Football Teams'. The back of the Bolton Wanderers card also advises that the next card in the series would feature West Ham United. That card was never issued, Edinburgh Hibernian is the fourth card in the series. Nigel has provided scans of the front and back of card number 3.

  1. Thanks for the 'heads-up' on this series, Alan; I wasn't even aware of its existence! I've just managed to buy your featured card 9, the English International Team, as Town custodian Edward (Ted) Taylor is in the back row.


Please feel free to leave a comment, though it will not appear straight away, as I will need to authorize it.
