Two weeks ago, I won some premium cards on eBay. It was, I believe, a full set of Nestle’s Rowing style sport cards from 1938, the same year the famous rowing coach Steve Fairbairn died. The cards on the left, five out of a total of 12, show the Fairbairn ‘style’ (on the left) v. the old Orthodox style (on the right).
Hey.Congratulations for wining Nestle's 1938 Rowing Cards. It is very nice cards. I will be waiting for the next post.
This illustrates how much interest in and knowledge of the public at large had in rowing before the 1939 – 45 War. It is amazing that these very technical points were considered interesting enough for general distribution.
Thank you, 'Yacht Charter Dubai', this set of rowing cards is truly beautiful.
And, I agree, Tim, it is amazing to us today to think that the rowing styles controversy would make it into trading cards.
