'Famous Footballers (green back)'
Set of 100
These are very common cigarette cards and will not cost you more than two or three pounds each in very good condition. Once again, the choice of the shade of 'blue' for the stripes is very odd!
'Sports Budget: Who's Who of Famous Footballers' booklets
I include these items although they are not really cards, but are pages from booklets. The first two are fairly obvious as to why; in the third example Town are represented by Tom Wilson (in the stripes, top right) and Charlie Wilson (stripes, bottom right). These booklets listed all the major footballers of the day and are very rare indeed.

Here is a small 'plate' culled from a booklet. This is the first of three similar booklets numbered Parts 1 to 3 but each with a different title. The second one also featured a Town player and can be seen below. This booklet was published on 12th January, and mine is complete.This same photograph can also be seen in the 'Team Photos' section for 1923-24.

Often incorrectly referred to as '4th Series, 1924-25', this was actually issued 21st November in issue #196, the first in the series. Well, we were League Champions at the time! These paper items do crop up every now and again but you can expect to pay over £10 for them when they do.

Set of 10 (5 pairs, but only 3 footballers)
I have no idea as to who published this rare 'pairs' card or with what publication. It is shown as originally issued c1925/26. I also have a 'single' version of this card. Hard to find and can be expensive.
Champions again in May 1925, the second successive year, and now Town were really making the nation's football fans sit up and take notice. Lots more cigarette and trade cards were available to collectors.
