"OLD BILL" Original made by Goodall in 1916
This set is an amalgamation of all the 1st WW cards featuring Bruce Bairnsfather's "Old Bill" cartoons. The pack was produced for the English playing card society to celebrate their 30th anniversary in 2014. Goodall produced twelve different packs of these, each one having a different Bairnsfather cartoon on the backs. Unlike this reproduction deck which shows all the cartoons individually on the face of the cards with an image of a real soldier on the backs, together with a signature of the cartoonist. I have a virtually unused original of the "If you knows of a better ole" pack for sale under the antique category.
