Many of the names will still be remembered today, such was their brilliance – Alex James, Dixie Dean, Clifford Bastin, Len Harvey, Kid Berg, Gordon Richards, Steve Donoghue, Frank Wooley, Jack Hobbs and Patsy Hendren – just a few of the stars in this sporting hall of fame. Other colourful characters include Bertram Mills of circus fame who put up £10,000 for the capture of the Loch Ness monster, Malcolm Campbell, Tom Webster who was a famous cartoonist popular for his sports cartoons in the Daily Mail and Lord Clydesdale who was the first person to fly over Mount Everest. The excellent colour portraits are pictured against an appropriate background and there is plenty of information on the numbered backs. A must for any collection and size 63 x 37mm.

Mitchell Horse Racing and the Turf Old Sporting Prints 1930 Old Sporting Prints 1930 25 - This set takes us back to the 18th and 19th centuries with a series of contemporary paintings and lithographs illustrating sports of the period – and some fascinating facts like when the third stump was added in cricket. We see bloody spots such as cockfighting and bare-knuckle boxing, horse-racing including the Grand National and the Derby, hunting, shooting and fishing. Surprising inclusions are two cards of mail coaches – the Edinburgh Express and the Brighton Day Mail which are hardly sporting topics. Packed with interest, this is a set to savour.
