8 Banks, Gordon Banksy My Autobiography
UK Michael Joseph 2002 Hardcover Excellent Excellent 24 Cm 
For ten years Gordon Banks was widely acknowledged to be the best goalkeeper in the world, and, perhaps, the best there's ever been. Along with players like Bobby Moore, Banks was first on Sir Alf Ramsey's teamsheet - England's number one in both 1966 and 1970. But in his prime, months after being named 1972 Footballer of the Year, it was all cut short when Banks lost an eye in a car crash. He defied medical opinion by fighting his way back onto the football field ending his career playing with other legends like Pele, George Best and Franz Beckenbauer in the fledgeling North American League. This book is the story of a genuine English hero and an account of England's finest footballing years. 270 crisply presented pp with several photo sections throughout, approx 750g packed to post.

15 E W Murphy (ed) Official Souvenir Programme Australian Tour of the MCC Team 1954-55
Sydney NSW Cricket Association 1954 Stapled Fair/good 18cm 
For cricket fans we have this neat little Souvenir Programme of the Australian Tour 1954-55. 96 pp with an ad for Stamina slacks at the rear cover, ah, those were the days. Authorised by the NSW Cricket Assoc, printed by Bridge Printery in Reservoir St, Sydney. Contnts are listed as programme of matches, photos of players, score sheets, cricket records, items of interest and an etc. Faults? The page that has an ad for Tooheys Flag Ale has pencilled scribble & a rip (maybe a Reschs drinker??), the page that has an ad for balls is also scribbled on, 2 of the scoring pp have pencil scribble, one scoring page has red pencil numbers & its facing page has fountain pen notes & numbers about . . .(wait for it). . betting!!Shock-horror!!Another two scoring pp actually have cricket scores/data entered. There's some stains on some of the pages (Reschs or tea, who knows). So in summary it's not for someone who wants a mint copy, it's more for someone who'll appreciate the flavour of the times & will show it to mates when they come around for a BBQ & a chat. I think it's got a certain sporty charisma.
