Description

Very Rare and Early 1875-76 England International Rugby Cap awarded to Manchester RFC’s Walter Greg: He played v Ireland December 1875 & v Scotland in March 1876, winning both matches. His cap, named within, is in maroon panelled velvet, with braided rose badge, panel dividers and tassel and remains in good condition for its 145 years: a stunning early example, hugely collectable, from just the 74th (alphabetically: effectively the same as the 69th) player to be capped by England, and in just their seventh game

Guide Price: £8000.00 - £10000.00
