M.M. Frame / Sport Photos, Glasgow - FRA-060/ZB9-47 Smashers (02)

FRA-060/ZB9-47 "Smashers"
M.M. Frame / Sport Photos, Glasgow
96 cards

In the original list I only included the players name as they appeared on the fronts of the cards. Robert Muat has sent in a list of all the players names as they appear on the backs of the cards. He also included a couple of notes:
Note A: Regarding card no. 1, Jacky Watters (Celtic). According to a former workmate who knew Jacky Watters, the player on the front of the card is not him, and this player is wearing a Motherwell kit. Jacky died in 2012 aged 92.
Note B: The photo of Stanley Matthews was taken during the Great Britain v Rest of Europe match at Hampden Park in 1947 in front of a crowd of 134,000 who paid £31,000. The money went to UEFA who were in need of cash following the war. Highlights of the game can be found on British Pathe's website - Great Britain's easy win over the Rest of Europe.
