Description

1955 South Africa Signed Rugby Scrapbook kept by Jack van der Schyff: Well-worn hard covered bigger than A4 ledger-type scrapbook of cuttings and photographs of his rise back to the South African side, many autographed newspaper pictures of the 1949 and 1955 sides, articles in English and Afrikaans and, of course, much comment on that notoriously missed kick. Some rips and tears and loose or un-gummed pages, but fascinating in every way, a personal record of the public view of this crucial figure in what proved a drawn series between the Lions and the Springboks.
