Barratt & Co. - (BAR-295-1/2/3 / BAR-70-A/B/C) Famous Footballers


1947-1950
(BAR-295-1/2/3 / BAR-70-A/B/C) Famous Footballers
Barratt & Co.
3 x 50 cards

Three sets of 50 cards, featuring just 79 footballers. These cards are known as the 'Non-Descriptive' series and measure 62mm x 44mm. Some cards have different captions on the front. Where there is a difference it's not known which set any particular caption belongs to. On turning the cards over the backs have to be rotated to be read properly. Some cards need to be rotated clockwise and some anti-clockwise. I've listed all variations I know about, but there may well be others.
