(BAR-740) Test Cricketers by E.W. Swanton (1956)
(BAR-745) Test Cricketers (1957)
Barratt & Co.
35 & 48 cards
As I was sorting through the 1950s Barratt cards I came across two cards of Denis Compton. He and his brother Leslie both played for Arsenal in the 1940s and 50s. Denis was also an accomplished cricketer, having played in many test matches for England. I thought I'd include these two cards for completeness. The fronts of both cards are the same. Test Cricketers by E.W. Swanton is known as 'Set A' and was issued in 1956. The other collection, cunningly identified as 'Set B' was issued the following year.
