Cope Bros. / Clips Cigarettes - Presentation Photographs of Group Football Teams (01) - Leaflet


1907
Presentation Photographs of Group Football Teams
Cope Bros. / Clips Cigarettes
6 photos

Roger Pashby has allowed me to reproduce this insert that was included in packets of Clips cigarettes. It has the same content as one of the pages in the Robert Crompton Medal leaflet that was also included in packets of Clips cigarettes but using a different typeface. You can check out images of all the Noted Footballers cards here - Cope's 'CLIPS' Cigarettes: Noted Footballers.
The Presentation Photographs of Group Football Teams measure 6¼" x 4¼" and are provided in a cut-out mount that measure 12¼" x 8¾". I have never seen Cope Bros. team photos but it's possible that the team photos might be anonymous when removed from the mount, as I would expect the mount to feature any mention of the company. They were given away in return for 100 empty 5d packets of Clips Cigarettes and 3 x 1d stamps.
