Barratt & Co.
3 x 50 cards

Although these cards all carry the same series title three different sets were issued. The 1950-51 and 1951-52 cards are similar with many of the second set having amendments to the players' biographies. The 1952-53 set is easier to identify even though many of the same players were used, the players' names on the backs of the cards are printed with serifs, unlike the previous two seasons when they are without serifs, making them block capitals.
