Good question. If I ever counted it Ive forgot the answer. Its not too big. Im guessing its well over 200 (could be more, could be less, as I said Ive not seen it for 6 years) but Ive really go no idea. The great thing about discount and 2nd hand book stores is that there is no shortage of cricket books. Ive only got about 20 or so Ive bought recently at the moment.
As for prized posession, I cant really remember what I have. One that comes to mind- when I was young I travelled around playing cricket and I carried a copy of "Boycott on Cricket" in my coffin and I have most of the photos in the book signed by the cricketers in them. Probably sentimental value rather than financial, but it carries memories of when I was a decent cricketer.
On a side note-
Any idea how much a signed copy 1st Edition of 'The Larwood Story' goes for? Im not selling but as Im getting older, Ive a bit more cash and Id like to start picking up some rarer books and Id like a copy of this.
