1882 Oxford University Cricket Club 1st ever card, 1of the earliest Baines sports cards



Made circa 1882 this is most probably - almost definitely - Oxford University Cricket Club's 1st ever sports card! The design on the back gives this away as one of the earliest-ever Baines sports cards (the firm used the Bradford arms with cricketer and rugby player only in the earliest years of manufacture, not after 1884). In 1882 Oxford and Cambridge were the two most respected sports teams in the land. Well fielded Oxford! SOLD AS SEEN
