John Player & Sons - Football Caricatures by Mac (02)

Football Caricatures by Mac
John Player & Sons
50 cards

Having brought out the Tommy Watson card earlier today, I thought I'd take the chance to include an illustrated checklist for this set of caricatures drawn by 'Mac'. This, and the set of cards by 'Rip', were my first experience of cigarette cards and I bought Watson, Len Davies and Bob John and I never looked back. In the original listing I didn't include the details of the rugby players, but I've included them here. 
By the way, Mac was the nom de plume of artist Douglas Machin and some years later drew a similar series of footballers for Ogden's Cigarettes.
This list updated the previous one - the names of the players are as they appear on the fronts of the cards and the names of the teams they play for are listed as they appear on the backs of the cards.
