Ogden's Cigarettes - Guinea Gold (Md) (03)


1899
Guinea Gold (Md)
Ogden's Cigarettes
150 cards (47 footballers)

A couple of years ago a collector called Peter tried to compile an illustrated checklist for this collection. I had another look at the cards recently and found that there are two distinct sets in the original list of 47 cards. Most of the cards use vignettes and some show full pictures. The vignette cards have the captions printed tightly - narrowly spaced, while the captions on the other cards are wider spaced.
There are still a couple of cards missing. If anyone can help with photos of the missing cards please get in touch, they are: A.J. Gould & D.R. Gow (Sunderland), R. McNeill (Sunderland) and Jenkyns (Millwall Athletic).
