Cricket legends' letters auctioned for Glamorgan museum





Letters from cricket legends WG Grace and Ivo Bligh are being auctioned to raise money for a new cricket museum in Cardiff.

The museum at the Swalec Stadium will tell the 122-year history of Glamorgan County Cricket Club.

"The letters are truly unique," said Richard Madley of auctioneers Dreweatts.

Other lots include a set of Wisden Cricket Almanacs from 1864 to 1970, which could raise £2,000-3,000 each.

It is hoped the auction will raise a total of £100,000 to help fund the museum.
