Fred Trueman Cricket Memorabilia

Posted on September 7, 2011 by Selby There have been 0 comments

I recently acquired several examples of Fred Trueman Cricket memorabilia from a private collector in Yorkshire, which was indeed his home county.

Fred(1931-2006) Yorks, England, fast bowler, represented England in 67 test matches notably taking over 300 wickets, which he reached at the Oval inĀ  1964.

In the second half of the 50s teamed with his fellow opener Brian Statham the two cricketing heroes made a formidable new ball partnership.

The Trueman era began 1951 when he hit the headlines taking 8 for 68 against Notts and in the return match at Trent Bridge 8 for 53, His very quick bowling style included outswing inswing and he was a master of the swinging Yorker.

On his retirement from first class cricket in 1969 a natural raconteur, he became a popular speaker on the after dinner circuit, known for his mixture of coarse jokes and humorous tales, he became part of the TV show Indoor League and had a regular feature column in a Sunday newspaper

Controversial in his public life he was certainly very decisive when in action on the field.

Fred Trueman cricket memorabilia that I acquired is listed below:
