Thanks for the help and kind words--I did hear back from Paul and as expected I dont think there is anything new here. And thanks Samosa I think there is a way to ballpark these with the right research and agreed it is likely early 1900's (1902-1905).

"Unfortunately there is no real way to date Baines shields. No real records were kept and they were issued in such huge numbers (though very few survived). The only way to try and give them a date would be to try and find a similar card featuring different players and hope to pinpoint a date linked to the clubs they played for at that time."
