  • England Level the ODI Series at McLean Park

    Posted on February 20, 2013 by Selby

    England Level the ODI Series at McLean Park Napier

    England 270 for 2 (47.4) defeat New Zealand 269 all out (48.5)

    The Tourist bounced back today defeating the Blackcaps at Napier by eight wickets, levelling the ODI series 1 – 1.

    Autograph Signings are taking place throughout the series.

    Alastair Cook (Ess) put the hosts into bat, the two openers Watling and Rutherford were quickly dismissed for 18 runs, both bowled by James Anderson (Lancs), caught by Cook.

    Williamson and Taylor put on 72 runs with Ross Taylor ending his innings on a 100 out to Anderson caught by Jos Buttler.

    Brendon McCullem batted well adding a further 74 runs off 36 balls before being caught by Chris Woakes (War) off Stuart Broad. The tail enders contributed only about a dozen runs between them ending the Blackcaps innings on 269 all out.

    James Anderson must be congratulated in my opinion on a match winning 5 wickets for 34 runs.

    Alastair Cook and Ian Bell (War) put on an 89 run opening stand setting the pace for a good start, followed up by Joe Root 79 not out and Jonathon Trott (War) 65 not out adding a further 121 runs for the 3rd wicket. Cook was out on 78 runs caught and bowled by Southee.

    Joe Root stood out playing consistently well, with a variety of strokes, Joe put on his 79 runs off 56 balls having survived two missed catches; his innings will leave selectors in a quandary on KP’s return to ODI.

    Cricket Memorabilia is available for series including the International Twenty-20s and the ODI.s

  • William P Howell (Aus. NSW) Cricket Memorabilia

    Posted on February 19, 2013 by Selby


    William P Howell (Aus, NSW) was born in Penrith New South Wales on December 29th 1869 he died on July 14th 1940 aged 70, in Castlereagh Sydney.

    Cricket Memorabilia associated with Bill Howell is available usually in the form of cricket autographs from his visits with the Australian team to England usually signed individually or on official team sheets over his nine year First Class Cricket career.

    Bill was a popular Australian cricketer of note, renowned for his right arm medium pace spin bowling, he batted left hand in the lower order.

    Bill made his first class debut in 1894 playing at the top level until 1905.

    He made his Test debut, Australia v England at Adelaide in January 1898 playing in 18 Test matches until 1904.

    Known primarily for his bowling skills Bill had the unusual ability to bowl a medium pace spin from a length, evidently bowling a full 23 yards, delivering the ball from behind the crease, he proved himself in November 1894 playing for New South Wales v AE Stoddart’s XI at Sydney cricket ground when he took 5 wickets for 44 runs.

    Stoddart’s X1 won the match by 8 wickets in spite of Frank Iredale putting on 133 runs in the first innings.

    His Test debut, the 3rd Test at the Adelaide Oval in 1898 was a success as he dismissed top order bat AC McLaren (Lancs) in the 1st innings taking 4 wickets for 70 runs, dismissing McLaren again in the 4th Test at Melbourne. Australia won the series 4-1.

    He had varying success with the bat, known for his hard hitting on one memorable  occasion, AE Stoddarts XI v NSW in 1898 at Sydney he scored 95 runs off 69 balls in the 2nd innings.

    In the 1899 England v Australia Test series in the third match he dismissed the entire Surrey team 10/28 (23.2 overs, 14 maidens, 28 runs, 10 wickets).The only batsman not dismissed by Bill was the Captain Kingsmill James Key. The Australian side won by an innings and 71 runs.

    He played well in South Africa v Australia Tests taking 14 wickets for 170 runs his style of bowling was well suited  to the Southern Hemisphere wickets.

    Bill performed well in the Sheffield Shield averaging 22.80 with the ball and a best score of 128 with the bat. Cricket Autographs and Scorecards are available for the SS series

    On his retirement from cricket Bill returned to his favourite hobby of Bee Keeping in Penrith NSW.

  • Blackcaps v England 1st ODI at Hamilton

    Posted on February 18, 2013 by Selby


    Blackcaps v England 1st ODI at Hamilton

    England    258 all out

    Blackcaps 259 for 7 wickets

    Autograph Signings will take place through to the 3rd Test at Eden Park, marking the England tour of New Zealand.

    On Sunday at the Seddon Park ground, despite the England top order batsmen, Ian Bell, Jonathon Trott and Joe Root making some useful scores, the Tourists were defeated by 3 wickets. This was their second loss at the Park in seven days.

    The Blackcaps put the England side in to bat and having achieved a solid position of 190 for 3 through 40 overs, England lost 7 all important wickets for just 68 runs in the last ten overs, McClenaghan, Franklin and Mills doing most of the damage. McCallum performed well in the field responsible for the wickets of Bell, Woakes and Stuart Broad.

    The Blackcaps finding themselves on 155 for 5, assisted by Kane Williamson’s 74 runs, hit back when McCallum (90 not out) scored 69 off 61 deliveries, whilst Martin Guptill having returned to the pavilion injured in the sixth over was sufficiently recovered to hit four 4’s and a six securing victory for the Blackcaps with 2 matches left in the series.

    James Anderson (Lancs) rested since the 4th Test at Napur in December, made history with the last ball of his first over by bowling BJ Watling with  an inswinger, it was his 529th International wicket, Ian Botham had held the record of 528 wickets.

    The ball used to bowl James Anderson into the record books will make an interesting item of Cricket Memorabilia

  • Lumb and Hales seal an England T20 Victory

    Posted on February 16, 2013 by Selby

    Lumb and Hales seal an England T20 Victory

    England finally showed their metal by polishing off the England v New Zealand T20 series, winning by 10 wickets with 44 deliveries remaining, to make it 2 – 1 for the Series.

    Cricket Memorabilia from Fridays match at Wellington will be especially popular with collectors and fans. There are plenty of autographs, signed programmes, scorecards and tour collectables.

    Autograph signings have been taking place throughout the three match series.

    Stuart Broad elected to put the hosts in to bat first at the Westpac Stadium and having taken 4 wickets for 24 runs in the first at Auckland, none in the 2nd match at Hamilton, he regained form taking 3 wicket for 15 runs, Finn bowled well despite his lack of wickets, whilst Jade Dernbach bowling fast medium took a useful 3 for 38. Eight of NZ bats were dispatched owing to a tight display of fielding.

    James Tredwell contributed taking the all-important wicket of Brendan McCullum caught in fine style on 26 runs by Jonny Barstow at mid-wicket

    With the team hitting form this bodes well going into the first ODI tomorrow at Hamilton

    Michael Lumb and Alex Hales (who was dropped on 6 by Taylor) scored the team’s best opening stand in T20 Cricket, Hales accounting for 80 runs off 42 deliveries and Lumb 53 off 34 which included five sixes.

    Sporting Memorabilia from the event will be appearing on our website over the next few days.

  • New Zealand v England Twenty20

    Posted on February 13, 2013 by Selby

    New Zealand v England Twenty20

    Cricket Memorabilia from the New Zealand v England Twenty20 series is fairly abundant and we hope to have a number of Autograph Signings at the end of the series.

    Following an excellent opening match in Auckland last Saturday the England side could not keep the momentum going and were outclassed at Seddon Park leaving the Black Caps with numerous openings and winning chances resulting in a New Zealand win by 55 runs to level the series 1 -1 going into the decider in Wellington on Friday.

    The effect on the ICC rankings was to demote England from 3rd place 6th

    A combination of Stuart Broad electing to field and putting in a below par bowling performance saw the writing on the wall for a NZ win.

    England conceded 38 runs off the last two overs; Skipper Brendon McCullen’s watchable innings of 74 off only 38 deliveries before exiting from a catch off Dernbach sealed the tourist’s fate.

    Joe Buttler hit form at the right time scoring 54 off 30 and Jade Dernbach’s 38/3 off 4 overs was encouraging going into the Wellington decider.

    Autograph signings will hopefully be on Friday I will keep you posted!!!

  • Guide to collecting Don Bradman Cricket Memorabilia

    Posted on February 7, 2013 by Selby


    Guide to collecting Don Bradman Cricket Memorabilia

    The Player

    Don Bradman (1908-2001) Played for Australia, New South Wales and South Australia, the legendary cricketer was knighted in 1949 for his services to the sport.

    Bradman was renowned for his contributions to cricket both on and off the field, in later life he became Chairman of the Australian Board of Control and served as a member of the National selection committee he became regarded as a cricketing statesman.

    Don Bradman made his First Class debut at the Adelaide Oval NSW v South Australia in 1927 where he scored 118 runs.

    Most would say Don Bradman was the greatest batsman of the 20th century, his international career spanned 20 years from 1930 to 1948 when he made his Farwell tour of England skippering the Invincibles, the team were undefeated which is a record still standing today. During his career Bradman broke all records; statistically his achievements on the field are without comparison.

    During his 80 match Test career he scored 6.996 runs at an average of 99.94 to include 29 centuries and a top score of 334.

    England became concerned that Bradman was dominating Test cricket so prior to the 1932/33 Australia v England series a meeting was held at the Piccadilly Hotel in London.

    .A decision was made to review the Australian batting performance during the recent 1930 tour of England. The five Test series was won 2/1 by the tourists.

    Bradman had scored an incredible 974 at a batting average of 140 during the series

    Four Notts players, England Captain Douglas Jardine, Arthur Carr and two leading edge fast bowlers Harold Larwood and Bill Voce decided to adopt a controversial tactic known as “leg theory”; this was put into practice in the 3rd Test at Adelaide.

    Bradman dealt with the hostile bowling attack with his usual dexterity, moving to the leg side of the crease he positioned himself away from the line of delivery cutting the ball through openings in the offside mid field.

    England won the series 4-1 with Bradman’s batting average reduced to 56.50 however he did score a century  not out in the 2nd Test at Melbourne, with a series batting aggregate of 396 runs

    Don Bradman Memorabilia

    I have listed below a limited selection of matches  which should be of interest to the collector:

    1930: Sheffield Shield: New South Wales v Queensland at Sydney. 452 not out, 2nd innings.

    1930: England v Australia at Headingley 3rd Test. World record 334 runs.

    1930: series in general in 36 matches Bradman scored 6 double and 10 single centuries a total of 2960 runs with an aggregate tour batting average of 98.6.

    1932/33 Bodyline series, a must for any collector.

    1947: Australia v India at Sidney, 100th First Class century, series average of 178 runs.

    1948: England v Australia, the Invincibles tour, the only side to have won every match.

    Cricket Memorabilia of particular interest to me include: signed cricket bats, original press photographs and RPP postcards, signed team sheets, cricket autographs and letters, tour itineraries and dinner menus.

    Don Bradman was a truly iconic cricketer he died in Adelaide in 2001 aged 92.

  • India v England ICC cricket memorabilia

    Posted on January 11, 2013 by Selby

    It looks as though England may retain top ICC one day rankings after a good start in the first ODI against India.

    With India evens and England 8/11 on the bookies are taking no chances and need to be more generous with their odds, as I write this betting has been suspended? However India are looking in with a chance  at 138/3 with the openers Rahane and Gambhir putting on 97 runs averaging around one run per ball.

    This series will provide lots of opportunities for some good cricket memorabilia

    England Captain Alastair Cook and Iain Bell put on an impressive opening stand of 158 before Bells wicket was taken by Ajinkya Rahane, ending his 85 run innings.

    Irishman Eoin Morgan scored 41 off 38 balls before departing due to a tremendous catch by bowler Ashok Dinda, Pieterson scored 44 before being caught off Dinda, tailenders Patel and Kieswetter added another useful 44 runs.

    It will be interesting to note the rule changes for the pace bowlers two bouncers allowed per over plus the field restricted to four players outside the fielding circle instead of five in the outfield.

  • India in Mumbai, Twenty20

    Posted on December 23, 2012 by Selby

    With 3 runs to win, what a finish for England,  Eoin Morgan the England captain hitting a six off the last ball from Ashok Dinda, to level the Twenty20 two match series.

    A signed photograph of Irishman Morgan playing the winning stroke would be a significant attribute to any collection, cricket memorabilia is already in demand, signed bats, presentations and autographed collectables from the England tour, especially in view of winning a Test Series in India for the first time since 1985.

    With India having made 177/8, the tourists got off to a good start with a brilliant opening stand of 80 over 8.2 overs from Alex Hales and Michael Lumb, despite Yuvraj Singh once again putting in a formidable bowling display, the left arm spinner took 3/17 including the all important wickets of Lumb,Wright and Hales leaving England needing 37 from the final 3 overs.

    The England team have returned to the UK for a well-earned break before returning to India on Jan 2nd for five One Day Internationals  against India starting on the Jan 7  in Rajkot , this series will be another good opportunity for cricket memorabilia enthusiasts bearing in mind that the best collectables are associated with the best match winning events. Lets hope that's how it turns out!!

    All in all the six wicket victory was a splendid way for England to end a memorable series.

  • England v India at Subrata

    Posted on December 21, 2012 by Selby

    England v India at Subrata

    Cricket collectables from the recent Test Series will be available on our website next week we have several presentation sets from the series and a good supply of signed tour itineraries, autographs, and programmes.

    It was great to see India back on form in the first Twenty20 at the Roy Sahara Stadium although disappointing for England that they won by 5 wickets.

    Opener Alex Hales(Notts) set the pace with his 50 scored off 35 balls before his wicket was taken by left arm spinner Yuvraj Singh, this escalated when Luke Wright and leading Twenty20 batsman Captain Eoin Morgan were dismissed in the space of 2 overs both caught Rahane bowed Singh who ended up with 3 very valuable wickets for 19 runs.

    England were never able to regain momentum, India impressed in the field, they were so much better than in the tests.

    England bowling was below par; Jade Dernbach (Surrey)delivering 3 wides in his first over amongst the 10 conceded during the match, Bresnan was top England bowler with 2/26

    The top Indian scorer was Singh on 38 off 21 deliveries caught by Meaker(Surrey) bowled Wright(Leic) as a best score that more or less tells the story.

    Cricket memorabilia from the current Twenty20 is in demand and a good assortment should be available.

    The 2nd and last match of the series should make great viewing in Mumbai tomorrow.

  • Kolkata Test Match

    Posted on December 10, 2012 by Selby

    Cricket at Eden Gardens Kolkata

    England momentum is hitting a high just in time for the 4th test starting in Nagpur on Thursday.

    Cricket memorabilia from Eden Gardens is already available and in demand, a seven wicket victory in the 3rd test makes it easy to forget the 9 wicket defeat in Ahmedabad and a drumming by Pakistan early in the year.

    Alastair Cook has set a splendid example scoring 100s in each test, if he can follow through in the last test it will be the first win for the tourists in India since 1984/5.

    Former India Captain Rahul Dravid is rightly concerned that having won the toss 3 times the home side has been unable to capitalise on the all-important wicket conditions, performances by Ashwin and Ojha have been disappointing and there is a general feeling that fitness standards and performance in the field are below par.

    Victory here for England will be a forerunner to back to back Ashes next year. It is good news that Lords will now be hosting 2 test matches each year starting with New Zealand and Australia in 2013.

    Cricket collectables of note on this tour are autographed tour itineries, menus and signed (printed and completed) scorecards, Alastair Cook would be a good start!!!!!
