Barratt & Co. / Napro Productions - (BAR-290) Famous Cricketers (Transfers)


(BAR-290) Famous Cricketers (Transfers)
Barratt & Co. / Napro Productions
1 sheet x 20 transfers

This sheet of transfers is similar to the two football ones shown a while ago. They were included in Barratt's Christmas Stockings in the late 1940's. I've included these cricketers as there are a couple of footballers included with Denis Compton (Arsenal) and Allan Watkins (Plymouth Argyle and Cardiff City). These two sheets are not included in Cartophilic Society of Great Britain trade indicies. I've included the complete list for this sheet plus another 18 names that come from a second similar sheet though there are two transfers still to discover.

UPDATE (05-03-2016):  Thanks to further information supplied by Brian on the Cigarette Card Forum, I am able to add the name of the company that produced these sheets - Napro Productions. Also, the second sheet originally listed here has no connection to the sheet shown above and was produced by WHC Ltd. All the information has been deleted, but new articles will be added to my blog for the cricket and football transfers created by WHC Ltd
