Barratt 1935 Footballers "A" (black)

The rarest of the 1935-36 -to- 1939-40 annual series of Famous Footballers,
these are the black ink cards, without numbers, and they include the earliest
non-tobacco trade 'card', but not the 1st 'rookie', of Stan Matthews.
Matthews also appears on a Barratt team card, Stoke City, from 1934 
but THE rookie of Matthews is by 'Red Star', a transfer/decal, from 1933-34.
The very easy Ardath tobacco card of Matthews, from 1934-35, is the economy rookie.
N.B.: this rare series is printed in black-ink, not sepia tones typical of later Barratt issues
