The ‘PINNACE’ Collection were Football cards produced for Godfrey Phillips. In 1920 the company issued a series of 1,100 Black and white photographs football cards. This was followed by in a numbered series of 2,462 in 1922 and 940 in 1923.

In amongst these collections were some of the early greats of Ayr United.

It is likely that the low numbered cards were part of the 1920 publication whilst the higher numbers part of the 1922 and 1923 sets.

Five different backs are recorded for the small size, all inscribed on the reverse “112 Commercial St. London E.1. ‘in Exchange for 25 of these perfectly clean small cards a Cabinet size Photo of any one of the series of either Footballers or Cricketers will be sent by return’.

Series issued between 1920 – 23.

The size of the cards were – Small 45x35mm, Large 82x58mm, Cabinet 153x101mm
