Sphinx Products - Poolette ~ Football Pool Card Game (1947)


Poolette ~ Football Pool Card Game
Sphinx Products
52 cards

This  football whist game was reissued following the end of the Second World War. Promotion and relegation came into effect following the end of 1938-39, there are some changes to the cards as some climb the league and others drop a division. I haven't checked the placement of the names in this list like I did with the 1938 version. The 1938 Red backed version can be found here - Sphinx Products - Poolette ~ Football Pool Card Game (1938)
