  1. I've come across a few of these cards recently, and they all match up to your list. I have two no 33's though. W Evans of Spurs i have, but i have another no 33, being J Holliday of Brentford? Does anyone know if more than one set of these were for sale. I've done some googling but can't seem to find much about them?

    1. Hi,

      J. Holliday (Brentford) is card no. 38. Perhaps yours is a poor print? I've just checked the one on the Brentford FC Memorabilia site:
      (http://brentfordfcmemorabilia.files.wordpress.com/2013/10/ardath-holliday-back.jpg) and that is definitely 38, though it's not very clear.


  2. Hi Alan

    Thanks for your reply, on looking at the card again i can see that although it is poorly printed on the back it is 38 now that you have pointed that out, thanks very much.


    1. Hi Simon,

      Glad to have been of assistance.
