[Adelaide, The Club, 1959].
Quarto, one large sheet of card (approximately 510 x 380 mm) printed on one side only and folded twice down to size.
An attractive menu card, printed in red and blue throughout, with the menu and toast list on the centrefold and the last page designed for autographs; in fine condition.
And autographs there from this auspicious year, in which the Club won the premiership in all three grades in the 1958-59 season. Sir Don Bradman proposed the toast to the Club, and he is one of the signatories, along with Clarrie Grimmett, the Club coach. Among the more than fifty other signatures (all but one in ink) are the following Test and State players: Alec Barker, Bert Bedford, Leon Hill, Alan Hitchcox [Hitchcock?], Gil Langley, Brian Leak, Bob Lee, Douglas McKay, Roy Middleton, 'Nip' Pellew, Colin Pinch, Ross Stanford, Cecil Starr and Rolly Vaughton. The oldest former Club member, A.P. May, born in 1873, has also added his signature. The original owner of the menu has written his ownership details at the head of the first and last pages.
