Just read this somewhat sad account of Hammond coming back for an FC match to raise some crowds when he was well past it.
Rewind to 1951: Wally Hammond's disastrous comeback | Regulars | Cricinfo Magazine | ESPN Cricinfo
It goes to depict how incredibly out of it Hammond was. Of course, the year was 1951 and he was 48 years old IIRC. It reminded me of the Jeff Thomson story where he found Bradman in the nets:
Maybe it shouldn't be given such weight...but, perhaps, that story goes to illustrate just how awesome he was - even compared to giants like Hammond.Originally Posted by Jeff Thomson

Somewhere I've got a video with a clip of a bloke called Hutton wielding a bat in his back garden when he was 70 odd - decent technique for a septuagenarian
"On a rest day during the Indian tour in 1977-78, Don Bradman was around in the nets. I was bowling only legspin to him, but he had a couple of young blokes trying to get him out. With no pads, no nothing ... for a 68-year-old, he belted the hell out of them on a turf wicket. And he hadn't batted for 20 years. I went back in and said, 'Why isn't this bastard playing with us tomorrow?' That's how good I thought he was."
Only in Australia can a national icon be called a bastard without offence it seems.
