1880s Pears Soap Fred Bonsor Bradford & Skipton & England's rugby union captain.
BARGAIN! Low price due to condition. Were it VG it'd cost more than double.
See photo of newspaper extract from April 1884. It talks of spectators wearing this card in their bowler hat bands - billycocks are bowler hats. SOLD AS SEEN. Dated to 1883 by the article. If a crowd was wearing it in April 1884 the card was undoubtedly produced some months, maybe a year or two earlier. It may be 1882, or earlier still.
SOLD AS SEEN. Worn in a hat band! Now we know.
