Description

1918 Dick Kerr's Ladies, the first women's football team on a card by Baines of Bradford. Card is dated due to the address of Baines, the non-Ltd Baines still in Bradford
NOTE: This card pre-dates both the 1922 Pattreiouex card (Casket cigarettes) and the 1924 Barratt & Co. sweet cigarettes card of Dick Kerr's ladies, so it is the earliest known soccer card ever made for the world's first women's soccer team, dating most likely to early 1918, after Kerr's ladies' spectacular Xmas Day 1917 match at Deepdale, Preston.
