* 1898 -99 (not 1902!) G O Smith Corinthians & England Ogden's cigarette card pre-cartouche



Can be dated to 1898-1900 by Harry Rennie at Hearts, in the same series. It's certainly not 1902 as some sources state! Thus, this is the earliest Ogden's G. O. Smith cigarette card, pre-cartouche type, very hard to find nowadays, sold with faults, corner, some corner creases etc SOLD AS SEEN rarity only going up in price!
