Show your CRICKET related covers and stationery

Post by opkedia52 »

Dear fellow members and all cricket loving philatelists:

I invite you show your cricket related covers/postal stationaries and other items of postal interest.

I have already two threads on cricket related issue which was well responded by the board members.

I now invite all of you to post here all your cricket theme covers and stationaries so that people may enjoy this thread.

I am sure most of members belonging to British Commonwealth must have taken interest in cricket one time or the other.

Here I am posting my first cover celebrating visit of HRH Princess of Kent to celebrate 25 years of patronage to Yorkshire CCC and signed by Peter Jester and others (members who can recognise the signature of others are requested to identify them).

Image

I hope this thread will go a long way.

The bottom signature is Martyn Moxon.

Above that, possibly Lawrence Byford, former Yorkshire CCC president, though can't be sure.

The stamp used on your cover also has a Yorkshire connection. It was the 22p value of the set issued to commemorate the World Student Games of 1991 which was held in Sheffield.

Yorkshire CCC was founded in 1863 in Sheffield.

I like the very neat CDS, footysphere.

I am interested in cachetmakers (producers) of covers.
Is this a Wessex or a Stuart?
The logo of the cachetmaker is at bottom left.

I think the top signature may be Peter Foster, President of Kent in 1991, and the next is Mark Benson, who was their captin - so you have signatures of both presidents and captains.

Not easy! Any clues on the back or inside? Tentative suggestion of lefthand signature being that of M Azhuruddin, captain of Lavinia, Duchess of Norfolk's XI who were playing the West Indies at Arundel. No idea of the others.

Here is one from my GB 1973 County Cricket FDC collection.
A rather plain looking cover, when compared with most of the others produced for this issue showing the legendary WG.
Nevertheless, this Bishop Auckland Cricket Club FDC is hard to find in good condition.

In just 3 more weeks it will be 37 years since the day of issue, and yet I have not been able to identify the autograph!

Thanks nigelc.

I will give them another go.
But I have tried them and others in the district without luck.
They are just too busy playing cricket,
than to worry about this chap Down Under asking about a time when Durham was not even in the County Championship.

Here is my only cricket pieces, which are the 1981 Cricket strike mail cinderellas and FDC

Image

The labels were produced during the 1981 australia post mail van drivers dispute 3rd - 15th December 1981. The Strand Stamp Centre (in Frankston,Victoria) accepted mail through their Store which was then transported by Road & Air to PERTH (West Australia) where it was posted at the GPO for delivery Interstate & Overseas. The Service was mainly utilised for letters and Christmas Cards for Overseas delivery. The 3 Values were - 60c Overseas Mail - 35c Australian Mail - "No Value" which was utilised for larger packets, charges depending on size & weight.

The strike mail commenced on 10th December and was discontinued on 15th December when the normal post office mail deliveries commenced again. The first day cover is postmarked with Australia post - Frankston postmark 2pm 10 Dec 1981 - as mail could be postmarked locally, however could not be transported anywhere due to the mail van drivers dispute.

At the beginning of last December I bought a couple of box-files containing local postal history items.

I didn't think much of this cover when I first examined it. It is possible to identify the oval cancel on the stamp as 74 for Birkenhead. The large cancels for Birkenhead and Chester on the reverse are not that rare. The stamp is less than perfect:

Image

Image

Image

However, when I got round to examining the letter inside, I had one of those eureka moments. The letter in side is a circular from the Hon(orary) Sec(retary) of the Birkenhead Park Cricket Club enquiring if the member will be partaking of refreshment (A cold Collation!!) at the ground on the following Saturday.

The letter is dated April 17th, 1847 and Birkenhead Park was not opened until earlier that month. So this must be one of the earliest items of memorabilia for both Birkenhead Park and for the cricket club. Incidentally, the club is still in existence.

The second card from Byrneside CC shows is an interesting social comment on life in the 1890's.
Front and message on rear.
“No our club will not be represented at meeting. If the place had been more central, sat Tatura, then it would have been an inducement for Kyabram, Merrigan, Cowra and ourselves to attend.”

Third one from Victorian Cricket Association. with the Reference on the rear "Protest by Richmond Club against the admission of South Melbourne".
That card is dated 1 / 24 / 1880

It was fine to add the Bicentenary Cricket Stamp to PSE & cancel it on fdi, but it was wrong then to cancel the stamp corner with a Brighton fdi cds on 21st June 1988.

from Royal Mail News (https://twitter.com/royalmailnews):

Howzat! We're celebrating the bicentenary of @HomeOfCricket with this special postmark!
It’ll appear on mail delivered to the NW8 postcode area, home of Lord’s


This mock-up picture was included in the message, and thanks to a reader I can show a copy of the real postmark. But his was sent to an address in Hertfordshire, not St John's Wood, so they may be going to other places.

In Norfolk I am unlikely to see these on my mail. I can try to obtain copies for collectors, but cannot promise anything.

I do think that the artist does need to study up on the game a little bit!

Here is a 1982 Ashes PSE fdc with a difference. It has been specially overprinted by V S Hill using a caricature of Sir Donald Bradman, drawn by a cartoonist for the local newspaper in Cootamundra, the birthplace of Sir Donald Bradman:

However this caricature of Sir Donald Bradman is not just seen on the pse above. I presume these are also creations of V S Hill:
Image
I don't know if there is any significance of the date of 3rd April 1984. Unlikely to be first day of use of the cover as the one below will be from an earlier time as the 22c letter rate was used in 1981 & 1982. Perhaps just a souvenir of someone passing through.
Image
A postally used one but cancel is of a type I have not seen before.
