Barratt & Co. - BAR-375/BAR-72-14 Famous Footballers A14

BAR-375/BAR-72-14 Famous Footballers A14
Barratt & Co.
50 cards + 2 variations

I wouldn't usually cover this set as it's included in Nigel Mercer's superb website Nigel's Webspace - Galleries of English Football Cards 1965/66 - 1979/80, but Roger Pashby has sent in a very interesting e-mail...

I have not seen you cover any of the later Barratt sets yet, so this might not be relevant, but I’m sure that you will be interested in it.
So… a query…
I was searching eBay a few days ago for a perfect A14 Barratt card of Jimmy Nicholson and couldn’t find any, so I narrowed the search to just Barratt and A14. My search threw up the attached series A14 card of Terry Hennessey, Nottingham Forest.
It’s clearly Hennessey in as much as the autograph is his. But is it really HIM?
I don’t know; I’m not a Forest fan. What caused my uncertainty was the attached card from the A15 series of Huddersfield Town’s Mike Hellawell.
It’s the same player, isn’t it? Surely it is?!!!
The Terry Hennessey that I remember from his Forest and Derby days was bald with a bit of a Bobby Charlton comb-over!! Any internet search using images also throw up pictures to back up my argument.
I reckon that the Forest A14 is an error card.
Your thoughts, please?

Roger, you are spot on. I've included an Anglo Confectionery card for those unfamilar with Terry Hennessey.
