Dear Editor,

Greetings from Blue Bulls country. I am a die-hard disabled rugby fanatic and sole proprietor of my own private Rugby Museum on historical and original amateur 15 man code International, South African Provincial and South African Representative rugby memorabilia from yesteryear.

I became a rugby fan in 1965 at age 6, but sadly, tragedy struck in 1966 at home when I sustained a severe injury to my left knee, which not only left me permanently disabled for life, but also prevented me of ever playing rugby.

I appeal to former America Samoan International rugby players from the amateur era before 1996 and readers who can help me with the following much sought-after rugby memorabilia on American Samoan rugby for display in my Rugby Museum: address of Rugby Museum if one exists, annuals, blank envelope and letterhead; 1990 version of commemorative hardcover book on the history of America Samoan Rugby; commemorative match day programme and used ticket v World XV; commemorative tie; embroidered and lapel badges.

1990 version of long sleeved match worn numbered jersey without sponsor's logo and without striped sleeves with matching pair of socks.

1990 version of magazines featuring Letters to the Editor columns; match day programmes and used tickets of Internationals played home and away before 1996; pennant

1990 version of plaque; player's tie; team photographs (color if possible).
