Barratts 1961 Wild West , when 24 becomes 25

I recently purchased an uncut sheet of images for the Barratt 1961 Wild West issue and upon inspection found that the sheet contains a card that was widthdrrawn from the set .
I gather the image that was taken out was for Ward Bond (it sure looks like him) the star of Wagon Trian who had died just prior to release .
Nothing groundbreaking but nice to know that the 24 card set was planned to be 25 .

Thanks for information Mark. I have a a few cards from the set....of course one of them being the Bily the Kid card. I wonder if they actually ever distributed the Ward card?
