Established in 1987, the New Zealand Cricket Museum is located at Wellington's iconic Basin Reserve. Highlighting that there's more to cricket than Tests and tea breaks, exhibits show the game's development since its early-1800s introduction into New Zealand summers. Highlights include one of the world's oldest bats and gear used by NZ legends like Bert Sutcliffe, Trish McKelvey, Sir Richard Hadlee, Maia Lewis and Stephen Fleming.
The Randwick Petersham Cricket Museum Collection contains a range of memorabilia covering the club's greatest players, premiership victories, players, legends and volunteers including caps, match used equipment, printed ephemera, photographs and pennants. The heart and soul of Randwick Petersham Cricket resides in the history of four separate Sydney Grade clubs – Petersham Est. 1899, Randwick Est. 1900, Marrickville Est. 1910 and Petersham-Marrickville Est. 1951. The collective lifespan of those founding clubs together with the 13 years of Randwick Petersham to 2014 amounts to 256 playing years giving Randwick Petersham an undeniable claim to be one of the oldest cricket club in the world. In 2001 the NSW Cricket Board proposed that Randwick and Petersham-Marrickville be omitted from the competition as part of a move to introduce a new club from Blacktown while reducing the overall number of 1st Grade clubs. When both clubs decided of their own volition to merge into a separate entity to be known as Randwick Petersham Cricket Club the Board dropped the plan. In the 13 years since, Randwick Petersham has become one of the top clubs in Sydney Grade Cricket winning premierships in the 1st Grade Limited Overs and Twenty20 competitions twice as well as in 2nd Grade, 3rd Grade, 4th Grade three times, 5th Grade twice and once in the developmental Metropolitan Cup competition. The prestigious Club Championship was won in 2007-08 and 2010-11 while the club has produced six first class cricketers with Simon Katich, Nathan Hauritz, Usman Khawaja and David Warner going on to play Test cricket. Former Randwick Test cricketer Mike Whitney has been President of Randwick Petersham throughout its 13 years history. ALWAYS SEARCHING FOR CRICKET MEMORABILIA RELATED TO THE RANDY PETES.

At the end of 1969, a group of Christchurch citizens gathered and discussed the idea of forming a Canterbury Rugby Supporters' Club. On 22 July 1970, a meeting was convened to form the CRSC. The aims of the club were to support and foster rugby in Canterbury. The Club flourished and was widely regarded as the best supporters' club in New Zealand, if not the world. By 2006, Lancaster Park was in need of an upgrade, so it was decided to replace grandstands #1, 2 and 3 with a new stand, which became known as the Deans' stand. As a consequence our club had to move from our beloved quarters - the “Tractor Shed” under #2 stand - and by November 2007 all our memorabilia and ephemera had been packed away in the expectation that space would be found for a new club room. Construction had started on a new space when the Christchurch earthquakes of 2010/11 stopped work. Fortunately none of our memorabilia were badly damaged and the collection spent some time stored in a container until it was moved to the Canterbury Cultural Collections Recovery Centre at the Air Force Museum of New Zealand in Wigram. This online catalogue is a result of that initiative.

I'm a rugby memorabilia collector and amateur rugby historian. Actually, I am quite fascinated by the early days of Football Rugby, i.e. between 1870 and 1930s. I am searching for prints, postcards, chromo, books... any kind of pictures that can tell something about rugby history and early ruggers or rugby pioneers...
