Leon, let an old football collector help you out.
They definitely came out with them in the 1925. I had a sheet in my hand. There was a letter to HoFer , George Kelly trying to entice him to give permission to inclusion in the set. The sheet and the loose Kelly were all blank-backed, however there was a loose Jack Dempsey with a 1925 copyright date and bio! There were two football notice the art-deco style. I was contemplating buying the sheet and cutting it up, but couldn’t bring my self to do it, not to mention the price was very high.
There were also 1927s. I have three football. See scans. The script is blue and not orange.
Finally, there are three very rare blanked-backed Spaldings that were so-called promos. Red Grange (rookie), Ty Cobb(owned once by Brian Wentz), and Bobby Jones (Rookie- owned by a buddy of mine).
