Taddy & Co. - Prominent Footballers (1907) (2)


1907

Prominent Footballers
Taddy & Co.
595 cards (475 football, including 15 F.A. officials)

I have heard from Peter, a collector and football historian who has an interest in Taddy's Prominent Footballers cards.
Your list is a bit different to mine, so I would like to confront our sets. I like to treat FA officials and rugby players as subsets, so on my list there is 460 players names. 31 clubs x 15 players = 465 cards. For some reasons New Brompton and Wolves sets have 13 cards and Nottingham Forest 14. It makes 460.
I have added Peter's comments to each of the club subsets. There are a few players added that are missing from the original list. You can find the original list here: Taddy & Co. - Prominent Footballers (1907)

Blackburn set is totally from team photo of 1907-08. I’ve never seen those four cards (****) but, I can imagine how they looks having the team picture.

Bolton Wanderers
15 players
There is some mystery with this set. I found two different portraits of Wattie White. There is no Bolton Wanderers set in 1908 (with footnote), so it has to be another version of 1907 set. (Update: the second illustration is false - there is only one Wattie White card). I have not seen the John Boyd card.
