Bunsen Confectionery Co. - Famous Figures (2)


1921

BUN-020/BUN-1 Famous Figures - 600/700 series
Bunsen Confectionery Co.
129+ cards

My only interest in these cards related to the footballers, but I have been logging information on the other cards in the series. I've been following a thread on the CigaretteCardCollecting.com forum that has been discussing these cards, so I thought it was about time I updated my original list to include all the cards I know about.

I've been compiling some of this information for more than 30 years and I must admit that I was never too bother about recording the names and teams of players exactly as they appear on cards, so I'm grateful for any information that will help make a more accurate checklist. A couple of collectors have already been in touch with additional information that I've added already.
I'm not sure who the player on card no. 128 is, but if it is Thomas Cook, who played cricket for Surrey, he also played football for Brighton & Hove Albion and Bristol Rovers and was capped by England in 1925.
UPDATE (16-10-2015):  Thanks to Matthew Zubrot, a number of Jockeys have been added to the checklist.
UPDATE (15-02-2017 12:13):  Brian Jukes has provided a scan of card 128 which shows the Cook card to be Lawrence Cook of Lancashire, not Thomas Cook of Surrey.
UPDATE (13-09-2018 15:31):  Paul Briers has provided a scan of a card not previously listed which can be seen here - Bunsen Confectionery Co. - Famous Figures (03) - 658 - A. Capper (Brentford).

  1. Hi Alan

    I have images of two more Bunsen cards in this set - both of England internationals who started their careers at Croydon Common; 607 Harrow and 609 Williamson. Can email them to you if you wish.

    Kind regards

    Alan
