A. & J. Donaldson - DON-060-2 / DOZ-1-2 Sports Favourites ~ Golden Series


1950
DON-060-2/DOZ-1-2 Sports Favourites ~ Golden Series
A. & J. Donaldson
64 cards

A complete checklist of 64 cards, though I don't have information on which clubs the players  are listed as being with for most of the cards in the second half of the set. The cards can be found with the text on the back printed in light blur or dark blue. There are also subtle differences with the typeface used. The dark blue version has more pronounced serifs on the main title and the words 'Golden Series' is in bold block print without serifs.
The cards shown here are currently on sale on eBay, follow this link.
N.B.  I have a complete checklist for the more common Donaldson Sports Favourites cards, but there are many different back styles and colours and I don't have enough examples to shown all the different ones. This is a request for assistance in providing illustrations. If you can help please get in touch. Thank you.
UPDATE: When I originally compiled this checklist I didn't have the opportunity to see the backs of many of the cards, so I just recorded surnames. Brian McEwan has very kindly taken the time to go through his collection and sent in a list adding the players initials as they appear on the back of the cards, amended a few typos and those that I had originally misread (these are highlighted) and added the clubs for those cards numbered from 33 to 64.
UPDATE (02-01-2017 09:49):  Trevor Cotterell has provided further amendments to the checklist, updating team names as they appear on the cards, also adding 'and Scotland' to many of them. I have also amended the descriptions of the two versions of the backs of the cards, they are all printed in dark blue but there are differences in the typeface.
UPDATE (02-01-2017 09:53):  Two East Fife cards (nos. 46 and 64) in 'good' condition, recently sold for £90.00 with 18 bids.
