Notes Per donor: the source stated that the cards and title plate were removed from an album with no items dated later than 1912. Thus at least one card is from 1911 (related to the title emblem) and it is likely that the other is from a year earlier or later. Note that some of the players are the same in both images.
Date 1910-1912
