S & B Products, Glasgow - SAA-040/SAB-1 Torry Gillick's Internationals (02)


1948
SAA-040/SAB-1 Torry Gillick's Internationals
S & B Products, Glasgow
Scotland
64 cards

These were sold in booklets, I know of only five so far and these are detailed at the end of the checklist. Some numbers were not issued and these have been included in the listing. I've included details of two printers proof sheets, plus five booklets. These are numbered for reference purposes only. It looks as if there was no set pattern to which cards appear in the booklets. A couple of the cards appear more than once as the contents of the booklets differ.
I am no expert when it comes to these cards but they are available in a wide range of variations. The backs were printed in five different colours if you include light and dark versions. Also the details on the backs of the cards varied. I've no idea if all the back variations are available in all the colours, or whether any one back version only exists in a specific colour. If anyone has that information, then I'd love to hear from them.

Text on the back printed in the following colours:

Black, Blue, Light Blue, Green, Light Green

  1. I have no 62 Ted Ditchburn with the first word of the text showing Spurs (green back) giving only 8 lines of text and 2 other cards (green and blue backs) showing Tottenham Hotspur as the first two words giving 10 lines of text. In additiontThe "Spurs" back has the series title above the number whereas the other two have it below.
