I PLAYED CRICKET , for my school and as a boy ,  i was very interested in the sport  . My Father informed me that his sister had won the raffle at a school she worked at in Yorkshire called Ampleforth College . She worked at the school as a cook . The prize she won was of 16 famous  cricketers autographs written in 3 different coloured , blue , green and  black marker pens . It is on a large sheet , and  it measures about 3 foot by 2 . The autographs include  England's tallest ever cricketer Tony Greig  and England's shortest cricketer Harry Pilling  . The other autographs are of Alan Knott , Chris Old , F Engineer , Frank Hayes , Mike Denness , Ken Shuttleworth , Clive Lloyd , Keith Fletcher , Derek Underwood , David Lloyd , Peter Lever , Phil Sharpe , John Snow and Geoff Boycott . According to my father , the game  being played was a benefit game . I would guess that the game took place around 1973-75 but i only acquired the prize from my auntie around 4 or 5 years later . Anybody here interested ? . THANKS  FOR READING .

I don't have anything positive to contribute to the thread. So apologies in advance for my stupid post. But is there a reason you capitalize the first word of the post every time?

No,it's just a peculiarity that I've just recently acquired . I write poetry
and I often do it with some of the poems I write .
Thank you , detraveller.

CULVIN because I thought some of the names didn't look like signatures and so Googled a few of them: Tong Greig, Alan Knott and John Snow.

THESE AUTOGRAPHS don't look real to me either. Most of them are written in a very stylish way. I wouldn't expect cricketers to have such neat autographs, though I maybe wrong as I have never met/seen a real cricketer in my life, let alone see how their autographs look like.

BOYCOTT'S sugnature in particular looks to have been written by an artist. Was Boycott one? The autograph must be 6-7 inches in length if its a 3x2 feet sheet. I can expect a neat signature in small font on a normal paper but at that scale, Boycott's signature looks a designer's work to me.
