An amateur player from England, W.G. had an influence upon cricket that has not met its equal since.  Playing from 1865-1909 (that's a record-equaling 44 year career), W.G. captained almost every team he would play on in his historic career. Known as the greatest all-rounder to ever touch the field, W.G. is primarily remembered for ushering in the modern batting era.  Being proficient in every form of swing, he would usually open the innings he played in- much to the disdain of the bowlers unlucky enough to face him. This photo depicts him in front of the wickets with bat in hand. The legendary man, and his legendary beard, was commonly seen in this position, and his name now lives on for the history that he made there.

Hand framed with 100% natural wood by our family of local artisans in Pelham Alabama, this high-quality frame is professionally finished with custom cut museum grade matting to ensure perfect proportions. Backed with kraft paper, our frames also come with hooks and wire preinstalled.
