Well Known Footballers Scottish 1938
Sinclair Football Well Known Footballers Scottish 1938 Well Known Footballers Scottish 1938 50 - John and Robert Sinclair set up their tobacco business in Newcastle-on-Tyne in 1856, but the partnership was dissolved in 1885. Each continued to trade independently until John’s company was taken over by Carreras in 1930 and Robert’s became an associate of I.T.C. Several photo-based series were issued by John Sinclair in the 1930s including this one, which unsurprisingly in view of the firm’s dominance in the North East and Scotland, looks at Scottish footballers. All were playing for Scottish clubs in 1938 and most of the major clubs are represented such as Celtic, Aberdeen, Dundee, Hearts, Hibs and Falkirk, with the surprising exception of Glasgow Rangers. Players include Willie Buchan, Tommy Walker and Bob Shankley. The presentation is unusual as photographs of player’s heads have been superimposed on caricature bodies drawn by the artist ‘Bos’. The backs give first-rate write-ups of each player’s history. An obvious “must” for anyone interested in football this set should have wider appeal. Cards Size 98 x 36mm.
