I have done my homework on this, one of SEVEN such sets from Comptons and it is one of the easier ones to compile. The 22 cards correspond exactly to the teams in the English First Division in 1926-27. Interestingly, teams were numbered alphabetically except for Birmingham, Derby and The Wednesday. Even more interestingly… West Ham United in red and white stripes and blue shorts? Really?!!

All cards had a plain back.
