  1. Alan

    I have the following cards which look as though they come from this series but they have plain backs:

    Colin Booth
    Jimmy Hagan
    Ken Thomson
    Bert Williams
    Arthur Rowley
    Roy Shiner

    Have you seen these variants before?

    Thanks, Martin

    1. Hi Martin,

      Thanks for your input. The cards with plain backs are the ones by Gee Products.


  2. Hi Alan,
    No. 12 is ROGER Byrne, who died in the Munich air crash, rather than Johnny Byrne who never played for Man. Utd.
    Keep up the good work !
