Taddy & Co. - Prominent Footballers (1908) (2)

Prominent Footballers
Taddy & Co.
390 cards

Peter has sent further information on the second Taddy set:

The second (1908) is difficult to count mainly because you have to see both sides of the card. Some cards are identical on their front with the same layout. You just can't believe it if you don't see it. Taking your and mine list together it seems the second series consists of 390 cards. I think the  Iremonger (Norwich City) card is a mistake but definitively there is a Robert Muir card in the Norwich City set. I've found a Jimmy Iremonger card (in a cricket kit) among County Cricketers series with Nottinghamshire. I've also found an Enoch West (of Forest) card in a 1908 series. There is also a Harry Stringfellow card in the Preston North End set. There is also probably, a footnote version of Billy Yenson (Queens Park Rangers) and Billy Wilkinson of Sheffield United as well as Frank Jefferis of Southampton and Billy Tout of Swindon Town. Altogether that makes 390.
