Description

1960-1 S Africa in GB & I Rugby Programmes, Autographs etc (27): Another strongarm-men march through these islands by the Boks, conceding just one draw (Leics/E Mids) and one defeat (Barbarians at Cardiff, in the last game before the French leg). Both issues are here along with 20 others, and also three versions of the wrongly-spelt ‘Souvenier’ pirate-type tour programme, a nice team pic & fixtures Western Mail ad card and a lovely handwritten autograph sheet on officially-headed Springboks’ paper. The games missing are S Counties, Oxford Univ, Glasgow & Edinburgh, Munster, both NE and SE Counties, Ulster & Leinster. Included are the rare North of Scotland match at Aberdeen and also Cambridge University, plus the Midlands at St Andrew’s, Birmingham & NW Counties at Maine Road, Manchester. A lovely collection able without undue trouble to be completed this side of the Channel. Varied condition, mostly good or better

Hammer Price: £95.00
