I went to the local flea market this morning.I picked up this small stack of DOG cards. There was on that was Imperial Tobacco company.But the rest of the stack were blank backed.The note on the lot said that these blank backs were some sort of printer proofs.So I guess my question is.Would it be possible that these were cards that left the factory without the backs being printed. Or did I just buy some sort of reprint set.The cards look and feel exactly like original cards.What do you think.Thanks.

I'm going with - not proofs of any kind. Also hard to imagine they are reproductions given what I perceive as an inexpensive and readily available set of cards. Of course I don't know anything about over the pond cards...

no guarantees whether written or implied.

Card stock looks too white, and the graphic appears to be pixelated. I am guessing it is a reprint.

Here is an original for comparison:
