Barratt & Co. - (BAR-170) Cricketers, Footballers & Teams (02) - S. Binks

(BAR-170) Cricketers, Footballers & Teams
Barratt & Co.
200 cards

Portsmouth collector Ed Emptage has sent in scans of a card not listed previously. Syd Binks is in the original checklist twice, with Blackpool and Huddersfield, but on Ed's card he is with Portsmouth.

The original checklist can be found here - Barratt & Co. - (BAR-170) Cricketers, Footballers & Teams.
UPDATE (03-06-2016 17:12):  The year of issue has been updated from 1926 to 1925-1927. I'll let Roger Pashby explain:  Sid Binks only ever played four games for Huddersfield Town (scoring once), two in January 1925, two in September 1925, his last game being against Cardiff City. He then moved to Blackpool only days later on the 30th September 1925. After 55 games (and nine goals) at Bloomfield Road he joined – although he never played for – Portsmouth near the beginning of the 1927-28 season. Thus the cards MUST have been printed over the 1925-1927 period in order to encompass his presence at all three clubs.
