Details

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.

All our signed memorabilia is supplied with a Certificate of Authenticity signed by a company director. It features a numbered hologram that matches an identical hologram affixed to your product, and details of when and where the product was signed. Our company number and details are included on the certificate.

Signing photo
Each certificate includes, where possible and in the vast majority of cases, a photo of the sportspeople or celebrity signing one of the product line at the relevant signing session. For logistical reasons it is impossible to photograph every product being signed, but showing that the sportsperson or celebrity was present and signing items is, we believe, the best way to demonstrate the legitimacy of your products.

Numbered security hologram
Your certificate will come with a numbered security hologram, which will correspond to a matching, identically numbered hologram on your product. This ensures that the certificate can only be used to authenticate the item for which there is a corresponding number. If anyone attempts to remove either hologram it will destruct, so it is impossible to transfer the holograms to other items.

 
 

PACKAGING OPTIONS & PHOTO FRAMING

As standard, your photo will be delivered in a protective cellophane sleeve. However, you can choose to have it delivered in a presentation gift box, which not only looks great but can be used to store the photo in the future.

You might want to make your signed photo look even more special by framing it, in which case you should consider our specialist framing service. Deluxe framing is offered in a black frame with either a gold or silver inlay with a plaque stating who has signed the item.

After your purchase the item is sent straight to our framers where it is expertly mounted and framed to create a striking presentation. It will then be sent direct to you by the framers using a secure, trackable method of delivery. Please allow an extra 10 working days for delivery of items framed to order, although it is often a much shorter wait. Please contact us if you need your purchase by a certain date.
