D.C. Thomson / Adventure - THO-325 / ZJ5-31 Famous Club Colours & Players

THO-325 / ZJ5-31 Famous Club Colours & Players

I was brought into an e-mail conversation yesterday between Geoff Sherley and Syd from The Clyde Archive...
I checked your site, as I had an old Clyde card from I believe early 1920s. However I see this card i.e. Harry Rae. I believe my card is an original and would appear to be on thin paper cut out probably from a comic. Do you have any detail of the origin of this card. (I have 35 other cards from the same set.)
My singular sphere of interest and knowledge is the history of Clyde FC, so I am unfortunately unable to help in this instance as to the origins of this particular card set. I have, however, copied Alan Jenkins into this email, on the basis that he may already have details of the set or indeed may be interested to hear of your collection. Alan runs the excellent website below, so may be able to provide some information (Alan, hope you don't mind me taking this liberty).
Not at all. Here's the full checklist, along with the Harry Rae 'card' sent by Geoff:
