This is an auction for COLIN MEADS:ALL BLACK by Alex Veysey.

From Wikipedia:

"Sir Colin Earl Meads, KNZM, MBE (born 1936), is a former New Zealand rugby union footballer. He played 55 test matches (133 total games), most frequently in the lock forward position, for the All Blacks, from 1957 until 1971. Meads is considered one of the greatest players in history. Nicknamed 'Pinetree', he is an icon within New Zealand rugby, and was named the country's Player of the Century in 1999... From 1957 until 1971 Meads was effectively an automatic All Black selection. The International Rugby Hall of Fame considers him to have been 'the most famous forward in world rugby throughout the 1960s'. His strength and high threshold for pain became legendary — best illustrated when in a game against Eastern Transvaal in South Africa, in which he emerged from a ruck with his arm dangling, with an obvious fracture, yet completed the match. When the doctor cut away his shirt and confirmed the break, Meads said "At least we won the bloody game." Meads is regarded by many as New Zealand's greatest rugby player, He is a member of both the International Rugby Hall of Fame and the New Zealand Sports Hall of Fame. In 2001 he was made a Distinguished Companion of the New Zealand Order of Merit, the second-highest honour in the New Zealand honours system. In May 2009 he decided to accept the offer to exchange his DCNZM to Knight Companion of the New Zealand Order of Merit..."
