I have done my homework on this, one of SEVEN such sets from Comptons and have discovered that the teams featured in this set made up the First Division of 1925-26. The back of each card was identical but for the number, 1-22, hence I have only included the one example. I have also included two examples of the Bury card (both supplied by Baz Warburton) as they are very different printings.
