(GLA-080/GKE-1-2) Evening Citizen Autograph Club - Best Wishes
Glasgow Evening Citizen
22 known

These cards can be found with and without "Best Wishes" added to the facsimile autograph. The cards are listed separately as where a player features in both versions the image used on the cards differs. Willie Tunie is listed in the checklist but I can't find a player with this name anywhere. As the only way of identifying the players is to read the signatures, so it's possible this card has been mis-read.
UPDATE (05-07-2019 16:14):  Nik Yeomans thinks that the player listed as Willie Tunie might be Celtic's Willie Fernie. Nik has also provided a scan of the Willie Fernie card.
UPDATE (28-06-2022 13:12):  The date has been amended from 1950-51 to c1955 following a comment left by Davy McB.

  1. The 'without best wishes' cards must be dated somewhere between 1955-58 as Don Kitchenbrand only played in Scotland in that period. Also, Alex Scott only became a professional player in 1954.
