Cohen, Weenen & Co. ~ Sweetcrop Cigarettes - Actresses, Footballers & Jockeys


1905

Actresses, Footballers & Jockeys
Cohen, Weenen & Co. ~ Sweetcrop Cigarettes
40 (20 footballers)

Very rare cards, I'm not sure which clubs some of these players played for at the time the cards were issued. If anyone has any further information I will gladly update this article as and when anything is forthcoming.

UPDATE (18-11-2015): Jon Farrelly has provided some additional information about this collection....
Hall is Aston Villa in the away kit and I am pretty certain that Hampton is Harry Hampton of Aston Villa but have not seen the card also I have not seen Spencer (Aston Villa) either. I do have the others on Aston Villa. This set was probably not issued until 1905 due to the the away kit photos not been taken until 1904/05 season and all the Villa players were members of the 1905 F.A. Cup winning team.
UPDATE (15-01-2016):  Date amended, see the comments below.
UPDATE (11-12-2019 16:43):  Carl Wilkes has provided scans of two more cards. If you are looking for cards from this collection then there's probably just Carl's websites that might help - www.rarecards.co.uk and  www.footballsoccercards.com.

  2. If that is Albert Hall (great name!), and it does look like him (compare with Cope's 1910 set) then as Jon says above, it throws the date into doubt - Hall apparently played for Villa from mid-1903 onwards... http://www.astonvillaplayerdatabase.com/573.html

    He's probably right - 1905-ish for this set.
