Object Detail

Brief Description
Christmas card with a cricket-related colour print on one side. The image shows a wicket keeper in whites, pads, red cap, belt and neckerchief, and a batsman wearing blue cap, belt and neckerchief. The batsman is not wearing pads and holds his right shin in pain. Above the image is printed, "How's that? - very uncomfortable", and below the text reads, "Enjoy your Christmas. You will flirt, no doubt, / But take care bright eyes do not bowl you out!". The card has rounded corners, and is coloured pink on the back, with a handwritten message that says, "With love to Walter". Writing on reverse reads "4".
