Anonymous - (ZJF-390/ZJ5-47) Footballers (1928) (02) - F. Barson
Another example of this anonymous set by an unknown issuer. The cards measure 55mm x 86mm. The reference to ex-Aston Villa footballer Albert Wilkes is just a photographers credit. Wilkes began his photography business whilst still playing for Aston Villa. He died in 1936 when his son took over. The business was eventually sold to Colorsport in 1970. The previous card shown had 'Sport & General' as the printers credit. The original list of 6 known cards can be seen here - Anonymous - ZJF-390/ZJ5-47 Footballers (1928).
