This was a small booklet (published in issue #124, 26th January, 1924) which featured pages of beautiful, brightly coloured footballers in groups of four with brief printed biographies on the facing page, which meant that individually cut-out pictures did not have the correct backs on them, although sellers of these do tend to provide photocopied backs. They were unnumbered and are listed here in the order in which they appeared in the booklet.
