W.D. & H.O. Wills - Football Series (03) - G.O. Smith

Football Series
W.D. & H.O. Wills
66 (41 footballers, 25 rugby players)

Gary Curtis has provided information about this card this card. Cards can be found with either 'Wild Woodbine' or 'Cinderella' brand identified on the backs. This card card can be found with both. It wouldn't surprise me of other cards are also available with both back designs. The complete checklist can be found here - W.D. & H.O. Wills - Football Series.
UPDATE (13-04-2017 16:06):  Gary Curtis has checked over 600 cards from this series and this is the only card with two different backs - see his comment below.

1.  G.O. Smith (Corinthians) - Cinderella back
1.  G.O. Smith (Corinthians) - Wild Woodbine back


  1. I have just checked more than 600 of these and that is the only back variation I have found. A few cards have been redrawn throughout the set, background shades differ and some have a better clarity of shirt detail etc. than others.

    1. Hi Gary,

      Thank you very much for letting me know, I bet it would be anightmare to track all the variations.
