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.
