Your Guide to British and Irish Lions Memorabilia

Formerly known as the British Isles, they were founded in 1888 but it wasn’t until they toured New Zealand and Australia in 1950 that the nickname British Lions was adopted.

It was in 2001 before their tour to Australia that they finally became the British and Irish Lions. The Lions are made up of the home nations of England, Scotland, Ireland and Wales.

Every four years the Lions tour to play the worlds best in the southern hemisphere - New Zealand, South Africa and Australia. The Lions have also toured Canada, Argentina and France.

British Lions Memorabilia is one of the most popular areas of Rugby collectables, as is All Blacks Memorabilia, Australia Memorabilia, South Africa Memorabilia and France Memorabilia.

The Lions have been on many famous tours, no more so than the 1974 tour to South Africa, making their captain Willie John McBride Memorabilia highly collectable.

The Lions won all 22 games and won the series 3-0 with the final test ending in a draw. It was to be one of the most violent tours ever, and it was the birth place of the ‘99’ call where when called, players were to hit the player next to them. It was believed that the referee could not send all the players off.

The Lions team was filled with rugby’s greatest legends such as JPR Williams, Phil Bennett, J.J. Williams, Fran Cotton, Gareth Edwards and Barry John.

This makes JPR Williams Memorabilia, Fran Cotton Memorabilia and Gareth Edwards Memorabilia and Barry John Memorabilia highly collectable.

More recently the Lions have struggled to produce the results of the 70’s but have produced some great performances and outstanding players, such as Martin Johnson Memorabilia, Jonny Wilkinson Memorabilia, Jason Leonard Memorabilia, Gareth Thomas Memorabilia, and Gavin Hastings Memorabilia, Neil Jenkins Memorabilia, and Robert Howley Memorabilia.

Current players include Martyn Williams Memorabilia, Gethin Jenkins Memorabilia, Shane Williams Memorabilia, and Lee Byrne Memorabilia.

Other desirable areas are, Match Worn Lions Shirts, Programmes and Team Issue Lions Clothing,
