When I acquired the card many years ago, it had 1891 pencilled on the back. It certainly precedes our entry to the football league in 1894/95, when we immediately won the second division.   I would actually go for the 1892/93 season, as J. Clegg only joined us in 1892.  All the featured players were with us for the 1892/93 season and as we?d won the, then prestigious, Lancashire Cup the previous season, it was likely that we featured on such a card in recognition of that.

Nice bit of detective work, it's great to be able to date some of these rare cards. As you know very few are dated, sometimes it's possible to see a date on a players international/county/club cap. Some early Sharpe's cards were created for specific Yorkshire Cup rugby matches, but there'a almost no information on these games anywhere on the internet.
