Cohen, Weenen & Co. ~ Sweet Crop Cigarettes - Celebrities ~ Cricketers, Footballers & Jockeys (2)


Celebrities ~ Cricketers, Footballers & Jockeys
Cohen, Weenen & Co. ~ Sweet Crop Cigarettes
22 (7 footballers)

An illustrated checklist, including the cricket card that's of interest to football card collectors.
UPDATE (25-10-2020 20:57):  James Cotton has informed me that there's another cricketer in this collection who also played football. Billy Gunn played for Notts County and Nottingham Forest as an amateur and also represented England twice in the 1884 British Home Championship against Scotland and Wales.

  1. You need to list Billy Gunn, also in this series as a cricketer with Notts but a double international who played for both Notts County and Nottingham Forest.

    1. Hi James,
      Thank you very much for letting me know. I've found a photo of the card and added it to the checklist.
