Beautiful G.O Smith Rookie card. Often mis dated as 1900 however within the set Henry Boyd features for Woolwich Arsenal whom he left for for Newton Heath (Manchester United) in 1897. Making the date of 1897 far more likley.

Playing for Oxford University, Corinthians and The Casuals G.O Smith is often referred to as "the first great centre forward".
