Unknown issuer (Uruguay) - Football Club Flags (Silks)


Football Club Flags (Silks)
Unknown issuer
27 silks

Really nice silks of football club flags issued in Uruguay some time in the 1920s. The above illustration shows nine of them inserted into an album page. The silks are numbered but it's difficult to make out the numbers. I only know of nine clubs so far - the ones shown above, but there are apparently 27 in this sub-set. I don't know what else features in the collection.

178.  River Plate Football Club
179.  Bristol Football Club
180.  Club Atletico Independiente
