The likenesses of these full length colour caricatures are superb, and are set against a background of what appear to be well-filled stands. The ‘legends’ begin with Frank Beaumont back in the 1966/67 season and end with Richard Butcher (2010/11) who tragically died at the age of 29 – one of the facts we learn from the narrative backs. Size 68 x 36mm.
