1882 c. Baines early cricketing card Bedfordshire County Cricket Club



From around 1882 (the back is the earliest type of Baines known) a very early cricketing card, for Bedfordshire County Cricket Club. Stunning! These early issues are very rarely seen. It's the cricketer and rugby player coat of arms which dates the card. This motif was only used on the earliest of Baines' products, early 1880s.
