Sir Matt Busby Rookie from Godfrey Phillips BDV Footballers Set. Often dated as 1932 however as Joe Hulme is featured as both an Arsenal player and a Huddersfield player it is safe to say that this set ran to 1938. It is accepted that this card is most likely dated from 1934.

Hand cut from the BDV cigarette packets they can be either cardboard or paper as well as different photographs and titles. This card is titled M Busby, Manchester city as opposed to the other version titled Busby, Manchester City.

Sir Alexander Matthew "Matt" Busby, CBE, KCSG (26 May 1909 – 20 January 1994) was a Scottish football player and manager, who managed Manchester United between 1945 and 1969 and again for the second half of the 1970–1971 season. His managerial records and longevity at the helm of Manchester United are surpassed only by Sir Alex Ferguson.

Before going into management, Busby was a player for two of Manchester United's greatest rivals, Manchester City and Liverpool. During his time at City, Busby played in two FA Cup Finals, winning one of them. After his playing career was interrupted by the Second World War, Busby was offered the job of assistant coach at Liverpool, but they were unwilling to give him the control over the team that he wanted and he took the vacant manager's job at Manchester United instead.
