This, the first of the “Pals Football Series” cards, is not a difficult set to acquire, but I have my doubts about the legitimacy of the last two in my collection; they seem to have very different backs to the others and are rather flimsy – I think that these are much more recent reprints. Also of note is the fact that card #2, Notts. Forest, has a different series title – all of the rest are “Football Series” but this card is “Footballer Series”, clearly an error.
