Description

Reprint of a 1905 Wales v New Zealand 'Pirate' Programme: It seems to have been established that, perhaps in 1935, a reprint was taken of one of the unofficial issues from the great day of 1905 (whose back reveals that paper had worn away revealing print beneath) and sold as a souvenir. This is one such, and is buff in colour, blue has also been previously noted. There is a rising market in the purchase of 'pirates', and even, in this case, a 'pirate of a pirate'. VG condition, the faint crease is from the photo work on the original! Sought-after item.
