Vintage Ted Dexter Cricket Bat by Gray Nicolls.
A good willow cricket bat stamped on the face with a facsimile autograph of Ted Dexter with the Gray Nicolls trade mark shield. A nice clean bat with a rubber grip but the blade does have a crack in the front.

Edward Ralph Dexter CBE, known as Ted Dexter, nicknamed Lord Ted (born 15th May 1935 in Milan, Italy) is a former England International cricketer.
A classical, hard hitting stylist and right-arm swing bowler, he captained Sussex and England during the early 1960s. He retains a "critical" eye (often admiring) on the modern game in its many forms.
Ted has also been a keen amateur golfer, captaining a winning Cambridge team and boasting some individual open victories along the way. He remains a member of Sunningdale Golf Club (Past Captain) and of the R&A. A "scratch" player for many years he admits to an over technical approach to the game good for discussion but not so good for scoring.
