This booklet was issued with “Adventure” on 17 January, 1925, issue #175. Although it says “Part 1” on the cover, the other booklets issued over the following two weeks were called “Star Footballers of 1925” and “Great Players of Today”. And although it is not a set of cards per se, I include this booklet (and others) because these pictures nevertheless turn up cut to single ‘plates’ and are offered for sale at ridiculous prices. I was lucky – I bought a complete booklet in lovely condition for about £7 on eBay a few years ago – bargain!
