  • Autographs Real or Fake

    Posted on October 12, 2011 by Selby


    I recently wrote an article rare autographs real or fake and thought this snippet may be of interest, it is obviously not related or implied in any way to the context of my article rare autograhs real or fake but hopefully demonstates the care required in any authentication of sports memorabilia

    Steiner caught in ‘fake’ document dust-up

    More Print

    Brandon Steiner, who has risen to the top of the cutthroat spo

    rts memorabilia game by selling indisputably authentic balls, bats and autographs, has become ensnared in a legal tussle over, of all things, filing a fake document in a nasty labor dispute.

    A state appellate court yesterday found that Steiner Sports Marketing “submitted a fabricated agreement” with the trial court containing a one-year non-compete clause -- in an attempt to keep a former employee from jumping to a rival company.

    Lawyers for New Rochelle-based Steiner Sports claim the former employee, Steven Weinreb, changed pages of the employment pact and that it was an innocent victim of the switcheroo.

    Facts surrounding the case are admittedly murky.

    Both sides admit Steiner gave Weinreb an employment contract with a one-year non-compete clause. Weinreb’s legal eagles with Kaufmann, Gildin, Robbins and Oppenheim claim he revised it to a one-month deal, signed it and didn’t tell Steiner of the moves.

    In an attempt to keep Weinreb from jumping to a rival, Steiner presented to the trial court a contract containing a one-year non-compete. Oddly, it also found in its files an unsigned contract with a one-month non-compete.

    A forensics expert found that the signature page of the one-year non-compete document matched the first four pages of the one-month non-compete contract.

    Steiner Sports now admits the one-year non-compete contract is a fake -- but claims an innocent reshuffling of the document created the fabricated document.

    However, it was shown before the trial court that the agreement was stapled, ripped apart and re-stapled.

    Steiner Sports partners with the New York Yankees and other organizations to sell game-used balls and jerseys. The company’s slogan is “The Steiner Seal Means It’s Real.”

    The appeals court decision yesterday does not settle the question of who is responsible for the fabricated document. That may be determined at the trial court -- where the appellant panel sent the case for a second look.

  • Godfrey Evans Cricket Memorabilia

    Posted on October 12, 2011 by Selby




    Godfrey Evans Cricket Memorabilia
    Godfrey Evans has been described as probably the finest Wicketkeeper in the world of cricket in both post and pre-war periods.
    I personally only have small amount of Godfrey Evans Cricket memorabilia a signed photo and a pair of keeper gloves, which is a shame as he stayed at my parents’ house in July 1958 at the time England played New Zealand in the fourth test at Old Trafford, he must have enjoyed it England won by an innings and 13 runs.
    Sports memorabilia obtained from cricket test series especially The Ashes is ever popular and there are some good examples available.
    Godfrey (1920-1999) was a charismatic, inspirational person both on and off the field, always known for his good humour and seemingly endless energy he was more often associated with his time behind the stumps yet he was a also a very capable lower order right hand bat who demonstrated his fast scoring abilities in both test and county cricket he was born in Middlesex and played for Kent 1939-1967.
    His Test debut came in 1946 against India at the Oval and ironically his last Test in 1959 was against the same opponents this time fittingly at Lords.
    During his Test career he was responsible for taking an outstanding 219 wickets in a total of 91 test appearances if you take into account first class matches this total goes up to an enviable 1066 dismissals, in 1951 he was honoured as Wisden Cricketer of the year.
    With the bat he achieved an average of 20.5 and 21.5 in Test and First Class cricket respectively, this included two test centuries and eight 50s, in First Class cricket a very respectable 7/62. His top score in Test Cricket was 104 and 144 in First class matches.
    In later years whilst enjoying his retirement Godfrey could be found in the Ladbrokes betting tent at Lords where he usually applied his astute cricket opinions to a variety of betting odds which he would often chalk on the board himself.
    I can’t finish this article without recalling the 1981 Test at Headingley when with Australia firm favourites Godfrey offered 500/1 England to win. The second innings was the occasion of Botham’s mesmerising performance at the crease, batting at number 7 he scored 149 not out in the finest style, Bob Willis then took 7 wickets and the rest is history as they say.
    Sports Memorabilia from the Headingley Test is fairly prevalent but must surely bring back some fantastic memories for the owner.
    I have recently written an article rare autographs real or fake which I would strongly advise prospective collectors to read prior to purchasing any hand signed item of memorabilia.

  • Cricket Memorabilia W.G Grace

    Posted on October 11, 2011 by Selby



    Cricket Memorabilia associated with William Gilbert Grace (1848-1915) is a welcome addition to any collection, I am fortunate to have purchased at auction the book Cricket hand signed by Grace this I would regard as one of my most highly prized collectables certainly one of my most expensive purchases of sports memorabilia.

    If most people had to name a famous cricketer from the past it is almost certain that they would nominate Grace, who could well be regarded as the most famous amateur cricketer of all time, his image is as easily recognisable and as familiar as any of the famous cricketing drawings .
    WGG a right handed all-rounder hailed from a cricketing family his sporting interests included athletics 440 yard hurdling and football. He enrolled at Bristol medical school and qualified as a medical practitioner in 1879 which confirmed his long standing position as an amateur cricketer.
    The pavilion at Lords CC in St Johns Wood London is home to the world’s oldest museum of sports memorabilia, whilst the museum contains a wide range of exhibits it is also home to that elusive trophy of cricket “The Ashes”, WGG is well represented by the famous plaster of Paris Bust donated by his widow Agnes in 1919, a number of portraits and other cricket memorabilia.
    Indeed anyone who has enjoyed watching cricket at Lords CC most probably entered the ground through the ornamental Grace Gates entrance situated on the St Johns wood road. The gates were erected in 1923 and include the word “the greatest cricketer” in the dedication, what a fitting tribute at the home of cricket.
    Grace who originated from Bristol began playing County Cricket for Gloucestershire in 1862. By 1864 he was making appearances at Lords and the Oval, culminating in his First Class debut in 1865 playing for Gentlemen of the South. I have included below a brief précis of his playing career:
    His First Class career which began in 1865 continued until 1908 during which he achieved 126 Centuries at an average of just under 40 runs. With the ball 2809 wickets at an average of 18.14, add to that 876 First Class Catches and what a remarkable career he had!!!
    In later life he enjoyed participating in Golf, Lawn Tennis and Curling an excellent participant sport which originated in Scotland in the 1600S and could be likened to Bowls or Shuffleboard on ice. The Royal Caledonian Curling Club in the definitive governing body for the game should anyone wishes to pursue this enjoyable game. Curling sports memorabilia is not at all common and would great to exhibit.

  • Somerset cricket memorabilia

    Posted on October 6, 2011 by Selby

    Somerset twenty 20
    Alfonso ensured a Somerset win in the twenty 20 against South African Warriors at Chinnaswammy, accompanied by a good bat from Kieswetter, which was the only creditable display at the crease, with Thomas player of the match on the strength of his two wickets and catching Prince for ten.
    Good luck in the Semis.
    Somerset cricket memorabilia is available at cricketcollectables

  • pc virus cure

    Posted on September 25, 2011 by Selby




    PC virus solved

    Some time ago my pc (vista) was infiltrated by a virus called “Smart Systems”,
    Tried all the usual ways to get rid of it , each search I made on Google had a different suggestion, usually a manual solution with warnings of damage to my system on following the instructions and advising technical help ,however, they all suggested the easy alternative of downloading a “fix it now” programme.
    I downloaded the first suggested programme which informed me I had hundreds of virus's on my computer, cost to solve the problem 65$, I paid them and went to download the programme it would not complete the download, so back to square one,
    Trying customer service is an expensive waste of time with these companies so I once again goggled how to eliminate “Smart System” virus, first response said guaranteed removal of this virus, I paid out another 35$ downloaded the product, once again it would not complete the download .
    I had previously used Spyware Doctor Anti-virus but let it lapse and I noted a lot of blogs suggested this was the best solution so i paid 29$ and downloaded that again with no success. It appears this virus blocks all downloads.
    This was getting ridiculous bearing in mind the top 20 Google results all suggested purchasing more instant result programmes, with the option of impossible, to most people, manual solutions.
    I tries Microsoft free disc scan which immediately changed the corrupt programme settings thus allowing the installation of spyware doctor, which then downloaded without problem and obliterated the smart virus.
    I have now emailed both software companies for a refund and they confirmed this is ok it seems now that US online companies are required to give a 30 day money back guarantee .
    In retrospect I wish I had relied on something as simple as Microsoft tools which were already installed on my computer.
    So I hope that helps someone.

  • Ireland march on

    Posted on September 22, 2011 by Selby

    Another excellent performance by Ireland at Clontarf in the one day ICC on Tuesday against Canada, fortunately the rain kept off, Ireland are on a roll and Porterfields decision to bat seems to have paid off 3 times on the trot now so that’s 8 points from their opening 4 games well done.

  • Fred Trueman Cricket Memorabilia

    Posted on September 7, 2011 by Selby



    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 in  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:

    MCC tour of the West Indies 1953/54 hand signed Fred Trueman framed presentation

    Yorks 1955 a hand signed presentation, from a season where Fred took 153 wickets at an average of 16 runs.

    Yorks 1959 a hand signed photo taken when they won the championship outright Fred taking 140 wickets in his 30 first class appearances, lots of catches as well.

  • Don Bradman cricket memorabilia

    Posted on August 28, 2011 by Selby




    Don Bradman cricket memorabilia is highly collectable, in fact I have one particular hand signed sepia press photograph of my father and Bradman walking out to toss up when the “Invincibles” played Lancashire in May 1948 at the Old Trafford 3 day match, this remains part of my family collection.

    I had the privilege of being introduced to Don Bradman at Lords in the late 90’s and what a pleasure it was.

    Don Bradman (1908-2001) New South Wales was without question incomparable in his status as an iconic cricketer he was renowned for his outstanding abilities on the field followed later by his contributions as Chairman of the Australian board of control and as a member of the National Selection Committee. He was awarded a well deserved Knighthood in 1949 for his services to cricket.

    Bradman’s  phenomenal batting  performance pre and post war so concerned the 1932/33 touring  side that in an attempt to curb Bradman’s batting domination a meeting was scheduled at the Piccadilly Hotel London between four Nottinghamshire players England Captain Douglas Jardine, a player who was obsessive in his will to win, Captain Arthur Carr, and two skilful fast bowlers Harold Larwood, and  Bill Voce,

    The purpose of the meeting was to analyse the style in which Australia had toured England in 1930, Don Bradman’s batting had dominated the series, averaging 140 runs Australia won the series 2-1.

    The season of 1932-33 saw the introduction of bodyline bowling a decision which was to test the Anglo Australian relationship to the very limit.  Bradman adapted to the bowling attack in the unusual manner of moving around the crease towards the leg side, away from the  line of the ball, cutting the delivery into the comparatively open offside mid field.

    Bradman went on to average 56.57 runs an average which although significantly below his usual statistics was never the less an outstanding performance given the circumstances.

    Bodyline series cricket memorabilia  is regarded as highly desirable to collectors, of particular interest are mono sepia photographs, completed signed and printed scorecards, programmes and autographs.
