Unrecorded Teasdale football set!
« on: June 12, 2015, 10:33:34 AM »
Right, chaps - hang on to your wallets!
I'm pretty sure that we're all familiar with the 1927 Gallaher 'Footballers In Action' blue-back set of 1927, with its terrific hand-coloured images of footballers chasing around the pitch in great baggy trousers and boots which covered the ankles too, yes?
Well apparently there was a 'rogue' release of this very same set by Teasdale (who produced other cards too) which is exactly the same in every respect except that it is blank-backed and does not feature the words 'Gallaher's Cigarettes' in blue at the bottom left corner.
I was shown 20+ of this set by a dealer in Nuthall, Nottingham on Wednesday morning and he told me that he had had the set verified by none other than Vernon Young, who categorically agreed that they are Teasdale issued and they will be included in the next cartophilic trade index.
My dealer friend did not have a complete set - only about 25/27 - as I'm guessing that there would be 50 (same as the Gallaher set). He offered me the only HTAFC card (Arsenal v HTFAC: card 41 in the Gallaher set) but wanted 75 as he felt that was a fair price for a set which nobody knew about. He suggested that they might even be the ONLY cards from the set still available, making them mega-ultra-rare!

I didn't buy, but I'm guessing that the card - and all the others - won't be in his possession much longer.

 Hello MT

 Garry Danyes has them in his catalogue.

 He hasn't got the Huddersfield card.
 The one's he has got are 20 each.

Hi MT ,

I must be the only one here who isn't familiar with the Gallaher set and it's printing colours etc .

So is the new Teasdale set different from this one below ?

No, Mark, those are not the ones.
Alan Jenkins has already flagged those up on his website - they are b&w cards based on the 1928 red-backed series of 50.
The ones that I was shown are colour and are the same as the 1927 blue-backed Gallaher set.
They are definitely not listed.

 MT

 Are the one's in Garry's catalogue the cards you speak of?

 His are also blank back.

Not quite, Mark.
They could possibly be listed as 'Footballers In Action' (probably Series 1) as per Gallahers blue-back series 1927.

To aid identification I'm attaching the GALLAHERS image of the card that I saw (amongst the 20+ collection). Definitely 'In Action' series.

You will have to use your imagination to remove the 'Gallaher's Cigarettes' moniker from the front and add a blank back!

No, Cap. Those are the ones that I mentioned earlier; b&w issues of the 1928 red-back series.
The ones that I was offered are most definitely blue-back and the 1927 series (see my response above to Mark)

I finally bit the bullet and bought this card yesterday although at the much reduced price of 40.00
You can compare it with the Gallaher card that I posted earlier to see - it's exactly the same but for the blue text.

And, if you're interested, John still has a few of the others in the set left; I don't know which, but I can provide you with his email address if you pm me.
