Taddy & Co. produced three sets of cigarette cards in their Prominent Footballer series. This is the second card to be featured from the first series in 1907.
No details of Arthur Walker on the reverse side of the card, it reads: ‘Imperial Tobacco’ – A ripe, full flavoured pipe tobacco, fine cut. In a good well-seasoned briar or a well-coloured meerschaum it will be found an admirable tobacco.’
Arthur Walker was born in Ripley in August 1888. He was signed from Nottingham Forest and scored on his debut for the R’s against Tottenham on 14th September 1907 at White Hart Lane. Despite scoring an impressive 16 goals in 30 Southern League/FA Cup games, he was later transferred to Notts County.
