1956-57
CHI-340-2/CGO-2-2 Famous Footballers - No. 2 SeriesChix Confectionery Co. Ltd.
48 cards

A second set of cards from Chix in their Famous Footballers series. There are quite a few variations in this set. I'm sure many eBay dealers would be unaware of these. If you need a specific variation, I think it best to contact the seller and find out exactly which card he is offering for sale.

UPDATE (29-12-2019 13:37):  Jason Chalmers has provided the following links showing all the cards in this collection:
