Ogden's Cigarettes - Football Club Colours (12)


1906
Football Club Colours
Ogden's Cigarettes
51 cards

It's been a little while but I think I might have identified a few more players in this set. The Bristol City player looks like W. Wedlock, though on one card the player has a moustache and on the other he doesn't. Just a few more footballers to identify - players from Portsmouth and Manchester City. There are a few rugby players to find too, if anyone can help with these I would still be interested in finding out who they are.

  1. Hi Alan

    If you Google some images of Albert Buick of Portsmouth (Card no.36) and Irvine Thornley of Manchester City (Card no.39), you may see some similarities.

    All the best

    1. Thanks Paul,

      I see that Doing the 92 website has the cards allocated to those two players. I've got to be honest, I'm not convinced with either of them.

      On the photos I've found of Albert Buick the ends of his moustache turn upwards but the player on the Portsmouth card brushed downwards.

      I've looked at Cohen Weenan and Smiths cards of Irvine Thornley and I can't see any similarities to the Manchester City player shown on the Ogdens Football Club Colours card.

      All the best,

      Alan
