March 2024 Update

Sorting the HCH Tie Collection

We spent a full day in March 2024 in the Archive Room cataloguing and photographing all the ties in the collection. Given we do not have the space to display everything in our collection in the Archive Room, we are listing all the items in each collection and then storing them. The associated links in these spreadsheets will then take you to the photograph, in this case of each and every tie in the collection. Our aim is to try and and make all these photographs available - by the end of 2025 - to those who will not be able to visit the Archive Room in person, but who are generally interested in particular items of memorabilia associated with Hampshire Cricket. 

Our Tie Collection numbers over 100 and we are constantly on the lookout for new acquisitions to our collection. They celebrate many of the trophies won over the past 50 years by Hampshire, as well as marking many of the Benefit Years for individual players. If you have any older ties produced by (or linked to) the Club which are spare, please contact us in the Archive Room at hantscccheritage@gmail.com to let us know. Conversely, we have a large number of spares which will be on sale at our two Book Sales this summer in May and August in the Club Shop.

January 2024 Update

Books, Scorecards, First Day Covers, Autographs and Photos

Over the past few months Glen has been listing and photographing all the Hampshire Benefit Brochures, Biographies, Cricket Grounds Books, Guides and Handbooks, Hambledon and Hampshire History Books, John Arlott collection, Membership Cards, Scrapbooks, Statistical Books on Hampshire Cricket and Wisdens.

Meanwhile Ray has been busy every week listing and cataloguing every photograph in our extensive collection of images. Our aim is to try and have a photo of every player who has represented the club to complement Dave Allen's individual biographies. In addition, Ray has been doing exactly the same for all the Scorecards, First Day Covers and Autographs in our collection.
