Thanks so much for spotting and flagging-up that card.
It looks beautiful!
Only problem is ... it's rugby!
Baines were naughty and didn't always identify very clearly which code the majority of their cards covered.
The evidence is here - on a 1908-09 official rugby club postcard.
W. Ainley is the first portrait at top left.

Just presumed football because of the images of the footballers!
I've actually got that postcard in my collection!
