Description

1930s-1980s Rugby Programmes, Newport, Cross Keys, & Torquay homes (12): Great lot, with Newport’s games v NZ (the win) 1963 & 1989, Australia (won) 1957 & (drew) 1966 & South Africa 1961; v the Barbarians 1959, Cardiff Oct 1958 & Feb 1959 & v Gloucester Mar 1972. Plus Torquay v Exeter Mar 1979, and a wonderful single foolscap folded sheet issue for Cross Keys v Llanelly (as then was), 1 old penny, hand- drawn action to front of cyclostyled sheet and Ivor Jones the Lion and Welsh Cap in the Scarlets side. Must be early 1930s at the latest, then: 90 years or so ago. A little foxing and tiny ‘nibbles’, but a gem: great for age & flimsiness. O/wise all VG

Hammer Price: £60.00
