Description

Vintage Rugby Press, Advertising and Other Printed Images, Team Photos, Articles etc (c.40, filed): Another splendid top collector's selection, from the end of the 19th century to the early 21st, but overwhelmingly 1870 (150+!) to 1920s. Noted are the famous 1888 full page Cadbury's Cocoa Rugby Advert, and the large, well-worn but wonderful, colourful sought-after publicity card for 'Jason' unshrinkable wool underwear, endorsed (no fee, of course?!) by the 1905 All Blacks on tour. Huge panoramic rugby action, English, Scots & French; French sporting magazines inc early rugby; Victorian prints and also the Magnificent Lions 1971 (already 50 years ago!) plus, on large printed/laminated card, the names & neat authentic autographs of the New Zealand team v the Centenary World Invitation XV at Christchurch, 1992. Lovely, as indeed are all the contents, much ripe for framing. VG esp for age
