Thanks to Dixon Pickup for the image below and  for the following information – Player's jacket button, cuff size sadly but at least we know what the button looked like. Pretty uninspired rendering, central shield with three balls piled with crossed clubs and interwoven title scrolls. The reverse of cheap manufacture stamped 'Warranted Fast'.
