Rare fixtures card for the English cricket teams 1903-4 tour in Australia.  Manuscript penciled scores noted for half of the matches. Advert for Kupper Lager on the verso.

The English cricket team’s tour to Australia in 1903–04 was the first time the Marylebone Cricket Club (MCC) took over responsibility for sponsoring and arranging an overseas tour representing England. England had not won the Ashes since the 1896 series in England. The MCC appointed Plum Warner to put together and captain a team, which was very much seen as the underdogs against Australia. Warner and his team, however, pulled off the upset the English were looking for and won the five-Test series 3–2. In the first Test at Sydney, R.E. “Tip” Foster scored 287 to set the world record for the highest individual Test innings; the innings remains the highest by a Test debutant.
