Issued by: Clark’s Toffee

Number of cards in set: 76?
Size: 35mm x 45mm
Approximate value (per card): Murrays unlisted; FCCM £150.00

A very rare set of blank-backed cards which feature only players from London clubs. The highest known number is 76 so at the moment that is presumed to be the last in the set but there may well be others to come out of the woodwork at some point in the future.

NB In late October 2020 Cory Lazar pointed out that he had discovered card 70 to be R. Duffus of Clapton Orient.
