DESCRIPTION

Here we have a very rare lot:

 

A handwritten two page letter by William Gilbert Grace, in black ink to Herbert Stanley Keigwin, Brother of Richard, congratulating him on his good form and hoping to give him some good games during the season. ‘I could have played you here v Surrey if I had only  known you could have come’. In the match v Surrey, Grace made 71 & 80 and took 5-39 in Surrey’s first innings.

 

Scorecard of match : Scorecard

 

The letter written on ‘London County Cricket Club, Crystal Palace’ letter head and dated 3rd May 1901 -   

Excellent ink signature of Grace.

There is a Wisden link to this lot, I purchased the letter to go with my 1916 paperback as I thought I would never find the hardback and this piece would make my 1916 a bit more special (it being the Grace Edition) but I do have a hardback now so selling this letter for someone else to treasure.

Free Postage,

Cheers

Chris
