Got three returns today. Ian Greig, David Renneberg and Bill Lawry! Here are a couple of the items I did get, received many other photos but too many too show. Overall I ended up with 8 from Greig, 6 from Lawry and 12 from Renneberg. So 26 for the day.
Got two back today. Dirk wellham signed 9 for me with a note and Keith slater signed 9 with a note as well. Very happy with these. Am hoping to get the photo which has already been signed by Keith slater signed by the batsman in the photo who is Grahame Thomas.
Great collection/mailday as always Nath! The Brian Taber one reminded me of how sport can develop lifelong mateships. I heard Ian Chappell interviewed about a year or so ago and he said that he doesn't live that far from "Tabsy" and they had recently played billiards together!
