OK, based on the back I'd say it's from around 1905 but BUT it could be a 1912 card. he was at Derby for two spells, before 1907 and after 1910. The North Parade address is the middle era address for Baines. It is not from the 1890s, that's clear, by the back, so I'd bet on 1905, or a couple of years earlier. So, it's not the rookie for Bloomer but it is probably one of the rarest cards of Bloomer, much rarer than his earlier cigarette cards.
