Australian & English Cricketers Wills's Cigarettes - 1911
Notes: Cards are approximately 1-3/8" x 2-5/8". They were produced for the 1911-12 Ashes tour of Australia by England. Australia, captained by Clem Hill, won the first test in Sydney, but then lost the next four. The series was first issued with 50 cards and then supplemented with an additional nine. Several brand designs exist: for Capstan, Vice Regal, and Hevelock ("A Series ot 50"); and for Capstan and Vice Regal ("A Series of [blank]"). The last nine cards for the Capstan and Vice Regal issues are marked "A Series of 59." Different sets with the same title and 25 cards were produced in 1903 and 1909. Thanks much to John Rand for the checklist!
