1880 Zingari Bradford rugby team Pears Soap card

£90.00

Description

1880 Bradford Zingari rugby team, on an early Pears Soap Baines card.
Zingari were gone by 1881. Baines made cards where Zingari played, in Manningham.
Baines would have been very much up to date with the news of the club's demise.
This card suggests Baines was at cards as early as the late 1870's! However, it proves that
Baines was making cards by 1881, the year the team was disbanded.
