Pluck - PLU-040/PLU-1-1/2 Famous Football Teams (English/Scottish versions)

PLU-040/PLU-1-1 Famous Football Teams
27 cards

There are two different series of these cards, with slightly different version of some of the cards issued in Scotland compared to the one issued in England and Wales. For the most part, the same cards were issued - Glasgow Rangers was issued across the whole of the country, but the other Scottish clubs were only issued in Scotland. There's another variation for some of the cards, as each card announced the name of the team appearing the following week. So, for example, on 6 January, 1923 the Barnsley card was issued. In England the back of the card indicated that the card the following week would feature Manchester United, but the Scottish version made reference to the Falkirk card being issued. Similar variations appear on the cards of Oldham Athletic, Darlington, Swansea Town, Leicester City and Huddersfield Town.
