1972 Hugely Rare and significant SARF Proteas v England Rugby Programme: Hardly ever seen, the 8pp issue from Cape Town, with punch holes but otherwise near mint, for the ground breaking and controversial first-ever recorded game between whites and coloureds on S African soil, insisted on pre-their 1972 tour by England, who won only 11-6 under John Pullin’s leadership. This IS the real deal, unlike the 1984 issue mistakenly billed as 1972 in a previous auction. A young Errol Tobias at fly half in the 1972 game was pictured on the cover of the 1984 issue! Will complete many a tour collection, one suggests.
