New Stock from Sportspages

New Stock from Sportspages

Welcome to our first new stock update  both of 2016 and on our new website.   We have some fantastic items from rugby, cricket and golf along with scarce and unusual football books this time. We also have a selection of items from more obscure sports – treats for collectors of tiddlywinks, fen skating, stoolball and longball literature (c’mon we know you’re out there).  Among the huge breadth of sports and rare items in the New Stock catalogue is a  charming and rare piece of cricket memorabilia, regarding one very beloved cricket commentator:

HENRY BLOFELD’s century at LORD’S, aged 16  (code: 37340)

This may well be Henry Blofeld’s finest cricketing hour – the official scorecard for the cricket match played at Lord’s on August 8-9, 1956 between the Public Schools XI and the vastly more experienced Combined Services XI. Blofeld came in at number 8 and scored 104 out of a total of 214 against some serious bowlers, including Leary, Shirreff and Subba Row. An impressive performance, albeit in a losing cause.

There are a host of other sports memorabilia gems in the Catalogue: take a look! Sportspages’ first New Stock Catalogue for 2016

Of course it’s about a lot more besides…33019
