I have been collecting Wisdens for a while now and in 2005 set up this Website to pass on my Wisden experiences, this site was the first ever created on the internet to explain about Wisdens to the masses and it is regularly updated with valuable statistics to help every Wisden collector when needed, to enhance their set. This site includes a popular discussion forum (wisdenclub.com) which has kept me entertained since '05. Over time we were offered Wisdens from members and also people asked if we had any spares to fill gaps in their sets. This led to our online Wisden Catalogue and this evolved into our sister site wisdenauction.com (see 2013 Wisden, pages 50/51), we improved the look and feel of this site in August 2013, Happy Collecting, Chris Ridler, Wisden Collector.

I am currently reading my set and pop notes into the www.wisdenauction.com newsletter, here is a snippet of the write up from 1869 : County Scorecards, not too much of excitement happening within the cards but Kent had a good team (not one stood out, maybe Willsher) and beat most teams although 7 ducks on Aug 13-15 against Cambridgeshire cost them the match. On Aug 3-5th the South of the Thames played the North, WG (playing for the South) scoring 130 and 102 Not out , carrying bat I guess as down as #1 (but who knows the order in the second innings) , Wootton took an 8 for and the North who won! The Colts (of Sussex?) lost to the Gentlemen & Players by 6 wickets with James Lillywhite & Stubberfield taking all the Colts wickets. But alas still no bowling figures to report. At Southampton, Sussex scored 371 in their second innings (Vs Hampshire) and in that were 51 extras including 35 byes, now the scorecards do not give Wicket Keepers or Captains like today, but Wilson took a stumping so he may be culpable. This was trumped as Incogniti bowled 59 extras , 38 Byes but I cant tell you the keeper this time. : Please contact us for the full write up.
My 1869 Wisden, as pictured, is a paperback in 100% original form that is in very nice condition, it has a few marks to the covers but a very nice , hard to beat book, I won it in an auction in Australia for around £16,000.
