5069 - Fred Trueman: As it Was: The Memoirs – Signed Hard Back

Fred Trueman: As it Was: The Memoirs – Signed Hard Back

Fred Trueman: As it Was: The Memoirs – Signed Hard Back

Item Number:  5069

Freddie Trueman is one of the world's great sporting legends. The fastest bowler of his - and indeed subsequent - generations, Trueman is still today one of our best-loved cricketers. This riveting autobiography is his story, from his Yorkshire boyhood in the Depression to international cricketing glory.

It's packed with gloriously funny and refreshingly blunt tales of the life of the junior professional in a 1950s English county cricket team, of lugging the entire team's kit from match to match when a journey across country could easily take a whole day, to Test glory in the 1960s both at home and abroad.

It takes in the commentary box, Test Match Special, Johnners and Bloers and chocolate cake and, finally, Trueman's trenchant views on today's international cricket circus: throwing vs bowling, the media frenzy surrounding top sportsmen and women and the nature of modern cricket.

This superb hard back book is personally signed to the inside pages.

Part of a large private collection, the book and dust cover are presented in good condition and is a rare opportunity to obtain a signed book from a legend of England Cricket.
