An All Blacks jersey worn by the Invincibles legend George Nepia has sold for a record sum of $46,000 at an auction in Wales.
The Cardiff auction attracted many international bidders, as the two jerseys worn by Nepia were placed up for sale. Nepia wore the jerseys in 1924, with the more valuable of the jerseys being worn in the first ever All Blacks defeat of Wales. Being regarded as one of the greatest rugby players, Nepia was famously known for his impact performance in the Invincibles team which toured Great Britian in 1924-1925.
It is thought that one of the jerseys was brought by a New Zealander. However the auction house ‘Rogers Jones and Co’ would not comment on which jersey the New Zealand buyer brought due to confidentiality reasons.
