“New Football Series” (Pals)

Year of issue: 1923
Issued by: “Pals” (E. Hulton & Co. Ltd.)
Trade reference number(s): PAL-300 / PAL-4
Number of cards in set: 30 (24 football)
Size: M (picture approx. 49mm x 82mm)

Another set of cards issued as pairs but nowadays more usually found cut down to ‘singles’. Complete pair cards will cost around double the price quoted above. There is also a typographical error in the English League Team card as can be seen below. As this was issued in April 1923 I can only presume that it was one of the last sets of free gifts before the paper was subsumed by Boys’ Magazine in September of that year. I only know dates of issue for two of these cards so I have listed them first.

NB The Birmingham/Falkirk card is a composite made up of images found on the internet.
