    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.

  • Football Memorabilia (Goodison Park)

    Posted on October 2, 2011 by Selby

    I thought after having spent yesterday at Goodison I would write a blog about the much revered ground with an uncertain future.
    Goodison Park football Ground also known locally as “the Grand old lady” is home to Everton FC and the venue for last Saturdays Derby with arch rivals Liverpool FC, with a seating capacity of over 40.000 it is an ideal city ground with great atmosphere, the stadium has been the venue for the FA cup final, many international fixtures and an assortment of games in the 1966 FIFA World Cup.
    Everton made the move from Stanley Park around 1892, which led to the formation of Liverpool Fc who took over the vacated park ground.
    Everton’s most famous football legend Dixie Dean died at Goodison Park as did former manager Harry Catterick, both from heart attacks.
    Club finances are in the news again and compared with expenditure at Liverpool pale in comparison Evertons future appears again uncertain.
    Everton football memorabilia is always sought after and takes pride of place in any collection.

  • 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.

  • Barry Sheene Memorabilia

    Posted on September 21, 2011 by Selby

    Barry Sheene memorabilia is something special as he is regarded as a colourful charismatic racer who defined the ‘70s era when he seemed unbeatable on the racetrack.
    Barry a former British world champion, Grand Prix motorcycle racer was born in London 1950 he tragically died in Australia in in 2003 following a short illness.
    He was awarded the MBE in 1978.
    Many will remember the iconic photographs, some of which I have in my collection, of Barry and James Hunt together at various events, James having won the 1976 formula one world motor racing championship in Japan. Many of these photos are part of a hand signed presentation.
    Barry holds the enviable position as the only rider to win Grand Prix races in both the 50cc and 500cc categories.
    Barry Sheene memorabilia from any of his Grand Prix events is very collectable particularly in the years 1976/77.

  • Diego Maradona football memorabilia

    Posted on September 13, 2011 by Selby

    Diego Maradona Football Memorabilia is very collectable especially hand signed shirts, shorts, boots, caps and other apparel.

    Diego (1960)born in a shanty town outside Buenos Aires is regarded by many  as the most talented football player of all time, he is also one of the sport’s most controversial players having been suspended a number of times over headline making allegations

    It was as a youngster at his local club Estrella Roja that Diego first began to attract attention with his complete mastery of the ball, and his adaptability whether heading dribbling or tackling left or right foot.

    Diego began his professional career with Argentinos Juniors on his sixteenth birthday, having got off to a dazzling start he went on to become voted South American Player of the Year in 1979.

    Three years later he signed a record transfer fee to Barcelona and made his non auspicious world cup debut at Estadio Nou Camp.

    It was to be the controversial World Cup of 1986 that became synonymous with Maradona he scored 5 goals in the series 2 against England the first goal which is still debated today was deflected from his hand becoming known as the “hand of god.

    The second goal was the result of a dazzling display reminiscent of George Best in the 80s where Diego ran rings round 6 players leaving them wondering what had happened.

    1982 joined Barcelona they win league, league cup and super league

    1984 joins Napoli more cup titles and in 1989 a UEFA cup

    1990 captained Argentina in world cup final lost to Germany in Italy

    Maradona played his farewell match in November of 2001.

    If any readers have any interesting authentic Diego Maradona football memorabilia from the above mentioned events I would be interested to hear from them.

  • Lee Trevino Golf Memorabilia

    Posted on September 11, 2011 by Selby

    There will always be a demand for Lee Trevino Golf Memorabilia; he is renowned as a true legend of the game.

    Lee (b 1939) a professional American golfer is remembered for his incredible style of play and his showmanship on the course, his swing would often appear awkward and then at the critical moment his body would be perfectly coordinated, I well remember his amazing short game occasionally he would shout "don't move, hole!'' when he'd hit an iron at the pin, his shots were just amazing and made for fantastic viewing.

    His career began on the PGA tour in 1967, the following year he won the US open at Oak Hill.

    He continued his stunning performances from that point on, building and consolidating his reputation when in 1971 in the period of a month he won three major’s the US Open, the Canadian Open and the British Open.

    Whist playing in the Western Open in Chicago in 1975 he had the misfortune to be struck by lightning, his spine was damaged but after several operations he was back on the practise ground.

    Trevino went on win the Canadian open twice prior to winning the US PGA trophy in 1984.

    During his career Trevino won 29 times on the PGA Tour adding 6 Majors to his impressive list of wins.

    Lee Trevino golf memorabilia from any of the 6 majors which he won would make an excellent addition to any collection.

    He co-authored his autobiography, titled They Call Me Super Mex.

    In 1981he was inducted into the World Golf Hall Of Fame

  • 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.
