Boys' Friend - BOY-300 / BPJ-2-2A Footballers - head & shoulders
BOY-300 / BPJ-2-2A Footballers - head & shoulders
James Cotton sent me scans of this card as he couldn't find the checklist on my blog. I must admit I thought I had already included this set, but I hadn't.
A set of 10 cards issued in pairs and given away with The Boys' Friend story paper between 18 November, 1922 and 16 December, 1922.
Note the William J. Kirton card is erroneously labelled as William T. Kirton on the front of the card, though his name is correct on the reverse.
1. Ernest England (Sunderland) / George Brewster (Everton) - 18 November, 1922
2. W.R. Wainscoat (Barnsley) / John Elkes (Southampton) - 25 November, 1922
3. James H. Branston (Preston North End) / W.G. ("Billie") Gillespie (Sheffield United) - 2 December, 1922
