Godfrey Phillips 'Pinnace' Footballers Alfred Bennett

Godfrey Phillips 'Pinnace' Footballers card #721 A. Bennett, published in 1922.
The Pinnace series is massive collection of 2,462 different cards (including some rugby players) - and that doesn't take account duplicate cards of players appearing for different clubs or minor variations of the same card. If that isn't enough there are three different sizes too. The smallest are common enough, but the medium and postcard sized versions take some finding. The 'Pinnace' set was so large it took from 1920 to 1924 to publish.
There are at least two versions of the standard sized Bennett card, where the differences are subtle but nonetheless there.
