M.M. Frame / Sport Photos, Glasgow - FRA-060/ZB9-47 Smashers


1950
FRA-060/ZB9-47 "Smashers"
M.M. Frame / Sport Photos, Glasgow
Scotland
96

These cards were stapled into little booklets, 32 cards in each. I believe it is possible to find all the cards with each of the three different back designs, as shown above. Only the players surnames appear on the fronts of the cards. Some players are missing details about their clubs, these are rare cards that are difficult to track down.
UPDATE (22-06-2015):  Robert Muat has been in touch with some amendments and alterations. All the changes have been noted to make them easy to find.

  1. Hello
    I have 2 of card no 36. Both of them don't have quotation marks after Smashers, is this therefore another variant?
