About This Item

New Zealand: N. Z. Graphic Series, 1904. First printing. Ephemera. Very good condition. An early postcard satirically commemorating the Championship rugby match of 1904 between The Lions (Britain) and New Zealand. New Zealand won 9 to 3. The text goes "In the Rugby Foot=ball Match, played at Wellington on August 13th, between Britain and New Zealand, the Colony defeated the hitherto invincible Home Country team by 9 points to 3."

A fullback postcard, stamped and franked in Auckland in 1904 to a young lady in Melbourne. At the base, the sender wrote "I think N.Z. people are even more one eyed that the Lion", referring to the bedraggled lion, who is wearing an eye patch.

The 1904 tour was principally played in Australia, where the British Lions won all of 14 matches played, including 2 tests. In New Zealand, 5 matches were played, New Zealand won 3 of the 5, including the test match, which this postcard memorializes.

Some minor dusting, o/w very good condition.
