Barratt & Co. - (BAR-515/BAR-36) Leaders of Sport

(BAR-515/BAR-36) Leaders of Sport
Barratt & Co.
50 cards

I recently came across a card for this series and remembered this checklist, which took me the best part of two decades to complete, only to find there are no footballers included within. As it took so long to compile I thought I would include it here just in case there are one or two other sad people like me who might be interested in it. The checklist is actually missing the names of two billiards players, I came across them at a time when I wasn't too bothered to record names unless they were footballers. Unfortunately I haven't come across either of them since, so they are just recorded as question marks.
The cards shown above are numbers 2, 34, 42 and 40.
