Signed Lions rugby shirt and book go under the hammer
TWO items of rugby memorabilia – one unique, one extremely rare – are up for auction in Northern Ireland on Saturday night.
A framed British Lions shirt, signed by a host of Ulster Lions, including legends Willie John McBride and Syd Millar, and recent Lion, Stephen Ferris, is the main attraction.
Also under the hammer is Kings Of Rugby, a limited-edition book of the 1959 Lions tour to New Zealand which is signed by all 43 remaining Lions and All Blacks.
The boxed, limited edition vo l u m e – o n ly 5 0 0 we re printed – details the story of the record-breaking 1959 tour.
Both items are being auctioned at a fund-raising dinner for the Lurgan College rugby team’s Canada tour in June. – Belfast Telegraph
