Two almost identical sets here which are really rare cards which fetch very high prices too. Produced locally they feature the players and officials of the Wolverhampton Wanderers Football Club. I have put the two sets together because the same pictures are used in both sets and are identical to the ones used for the 1923-24 set although many players had moved on by 1930 which makes this date look more than just a little uncertain. Cards are unnumbered and whilst the plain back set are just that, the other set all feature the same printed back; they are arranged – and listed – here alphabetically.
