Another series of superb sepia team groups, this time more easily identifiable as belonging to the same set as each one has the date “1928” after each team name. As with all the other similar items, these are very hard to find, especially in good condition although they do crop up on eBay. Chasing a whole set would, I imagine, be rather difficult. Once again, Alan Jenkins has managed to trace the issue numbers and publication dates.
