Hugely Rare 1908 'British Lions' to NZ Autographs: A great survival, with clean sharp folds, a card of approx. 8.5" x 7" headed British Football Team 1908 (and to the other side, Wellington Football Team 1908, with some semi-calligraphic work). The 'Lions' feature 23 signatures inc Vassall, Smith, Dyke, Harding, J L Williams, Ponty Jones and Dibble. Wellington have 19 (with Alexander taking the lead and Fred Roberts prominent), mostly in fine handwriting. Very much sought after quality memorabilia. Also comes with a good clean used 'real photograph' postcard of the victorious Wales side v the 1905 NZ All Blacks, and for further piquancy, the lot comes from the family of an unrelated subsequent British Lion to NZ!
