This classic photo was signed by Sir Ian Botham in a private signing session arranged and conducted by Exclusive Memorabilia on November 2, 2017 in Durham. It shows Botham enjoying a cigar before his famous innings at Headingley of 149 not out to set England on the way to their sensational Ashes victory in 1981. Midway through the third test England had been forced to follow on. They found themselves 105-5, still 222 runs short of forcing Australia to bat again, when Botham walked out to bat. Two more wickets soon fell, to leave England staring defeat in the face at 135-7. Botham began swinging the bat, to produce a sensational innings of 149 not out, and leaving the Aussies needing 128 to win. An incredible piece of hostile bowling from Bob Willis the next day, taking 8 for 43, skittled the Australians out for only 111, to secure an improbable victory.
