Beautiful card featuring the multi-talented G.O Smith. Often misdated as 1900 however 1897 is far more likely due to the presence of Henry Boyd in Arsenal colours (Boyd left Arsenal in January 1897).

Gilbert Oswald Smith (born 25 November 1872 in Croydon, Surrey, died 6 December 1943 in Lymington, Hampshire), familiarly known as G. O. Smith or simply as G. O. or Jo, was a nineteenth century amateur footballer often referred to as "the first great centre forward". In addition, Smith played first-class cricket for Oxford University and Surrey.[2]

Smith was educated, from 1886 to 1892, at Charterhouse School, one of the principal nurseries of the Association Football game, and learned many of the skills that subsequently brought him fame while boarding at the school. He went on to study at Keble College, Oxford, and was by profession a school teacher. He was unmarried.
