An end-of-match scorecard (approximately 255x150mm) for the Fifth Test, England versus Australia, commencing Saturday, 20 August 1938 (a four-day match)

England won by an innings and 579 runs: Hutton 364, Leyland 187 and Hardstaff 169 contributed to the record total of 7 wickets declared for 903 (a figure that is still in the top ten first-class scores of all time); Australia could manage only 201 and 123, as both Bradman and Fingleton were injured during the innings and did not bat. As Frith puts it: 'With England's total around 800, Bradman put himself on to bowl - but soon fell and fractured a shinbone'. Archivally mounted (ready for framing) with a card signed by Don Bradman (displayed in a window in the mount); minimal pale foxing; in excellent condition.
