Every player signed up for the project
Now you're beginning to see the quality of this collection in Legends of World Rugby. These are just some of the 74 legendary players – every player involved – who’ve signed each precious limited edition.
"Never before and never again" is quite
a call when used to describe a book on the legendary players from around
But in producing
‘Legends of World Rugby’, a collector's piece of unprecedented
intrinsic and historical value has been created.
Never before has a project involving such a galaxy
of stars been attempted. The mammoth task took several years to complete.
All Black great Colin ‘Pinetree’ Meads kindly
wrote the letter of introduction to these men, detailing the project on
behalf of the author.
Then from Porta in
... the journey of the signing material inexorably continued.
There are 100 ‘Legends’ who are covered in
this fabulous book. Out of respect to the dead, the balance of players is
made up of legendary players who are now deceased, the men who will never
be forgotten, the greats of yesteryear include Gwyn Nicholls, Gerry Brand,
Gordon Brown, Danie Craven, Billy Wallace ....
Each chapter analyses the often superb
contribution the player made to the history of the rugby game and to his
own country’s fortunes. The author’s efforts ensured the player’s
life since his retirement was covered too. A ‘bio box’ also rounds out
each player’s coverage.
The book contains wonderful photography,
with many historic shots, sets off all 100 of these remarkable players’
The presentation of Legends
reaches all new standards.
The book comes in a handsome presentation – an embossed padded cover Special Edition sits snugly contained inside a lined ‘cigar box’ (lift-up top) outer shellcase. Vibrant new colours are involved.
This may all sound ‘technical’ and printer’s ‘jargon’, but
believe us, this book is beautiful and truly something to behold.
There is a certificate of authenticity (signed by the author) and a
written guarantee that it is restricted to only 533
Each edition is numbered and there is a money-back guarantee
