1935 Oxford v Cambridge Varsity Match Rugby Programme: Although a rare 0-0 draw, only the third in the 60 games to that date, this edition usually carries some premium, with Oxford fielding on their wings Prince Alex Obolensky and Geoffrey Rees-Jones, (both to be centrally involved in the next month in English and Welsh wins over the touring All Blacks); likewise in the Cambridge backs Wilf Wooller & Cliff Jones (for Wales), while Ken Fyfe had already met them for Scotland. Margins are sunned and a tad ‘nibbled’ to bottom: but all adding to the charm and vintage nature of what is a famous issue.

Hammer Price: £50.00
