Description

1955 England etc Rugby Programme Selection (3): The Twickenham issues from England v France and v Scotland, both with signs of a little damage or foxing or sellotape but still whole and acceptable, plus the unusual London Counties v Italy programme from that year. The Italians were paying a first visit to ‘HQ’ and were not granted the full title of the national side as it was not a Test, but the hopeful article-writer within would probably be pleased that 45 years on Italy became a full, albeit a struggling, member of the Six Nations. France, also laughed at somewhat in 1910, beat England on the day of the 1955 issue, also 45 years on!

Guide Price: £25.00 - £30.00
