The image on this card shows a pair of cricket pads from the 1970’s. They have been whitened after use and have the owner’s name; ‘M. Farland’ affixed on a label, (both customs of the day). The straps and buckles, standard features back then, meant batsmen spent an inordinate amount of time doubling the straps back through the buckles to minimise the chance of the ball hitting a dangling strap. Note the unusual design feature of the strap continuing on the outside of the front of the pad.

The card has a matt laminate outer and is printed on a 350 gsm stock. When folded it measures 15cm x 15cm. A plain white envelope is included and both are wrapped in a clear cellophane sleeve.
