Class of '59: From Bailey to Wooller: The Golden Age of County Cricket Book Description


In 1959, a unique set of collectable cards was produced to celebrate the careers of 50 of the leading cricketers of the day. These cards are now very rare and hugely sought after. This book commemorates the 40th anniversary of the cards' first appearance, reproducing each of the 50 originals in detail. They are accompanied by present-day interviews with the cricketers concerned, in which they look back over the glory days of their career and comment on the future of the game. The late '50s and early '60s were a golden age in English cricket history, and the roll call of those featured here--among them such greats as Trevor Bailey, Fred Truman, Alec Bedser, and Brian Close--reads like a hall of fame.
