This ‘Sphinx’ vintage football card game comprised 30 general cards including Goalkeeper, International Cap, Home, Away and Draw cards. The remaining 22 cards featured teams from the four divisions of the Football League; Division 1, Division 2, Division 3 North and Division 3 South. The West Ham United Second Division card also depicted Barnsley, Bradford and Nottingham Forest.

The playing rules however were very complicated, first the deck being split into two, players in turn would then arrange matches based on their same Division. The second deck was used to predict the outcome of the matches using a combination based on Trumps and Whist with points being awarded, 20 points for an away win, home win 10 points and a draw 15 points.
