Teasdale & Co. Ltd. - Footballers In Action (Colour)

Footballers In Action (Colour)
Teasdale & Co. Ltd. 
50 cards ? (19 known)

I had an e-mail from Roger Pashby alerting me to that fact that he'd seen these cards at a Card Fair. It turns out that cigarette card dealer John Shaw has discovered a third set of football cards issued by Teasdale & Co. that have gone unrecorded since being issued in the early 1930's (or late 1920's). These cards are similar to the Gallaher's Cigarettes 'Footballers in Action' blue backed cards that were issued in 1928. They have plain backs and don't have 'Gallaher's Cigarettes' printed on the front. A few examples are shown here.
John has recently been featured on the Cartophilic Society of Great Britain website - John Shaw Launches New Cigarette Card Website and here's a link to the aforementioned website - http://www.cigarettecards.org
Previously known Teasdale issues can be seen here:
Teasdale & Co. Ltd. - TEA-110 / ZJ5-102-2 - Footballers In Action - Incidents In Play (as Gallaher G12-52)
Teasdale & Co. Ltd. - TEA-100 / ZJ5-102-1 - Footballers
UPDATE (04-04-2020 15:09):  Roger Pashby has provided a scan of a new addition to his Huddersfield Town collection, the card listed at number 22 in the checklist. Two more cards (nos. 16 and 17) have also been moved into the List of known cards., having recently been available in Garry Daynes' eBay auctions. The three cards can be seen above, the 5th, 6th and 7th illustrations.
