It's the MCC grading stamp confirming it conforms to all levels of cricket.

Actually, i think this was what i remembered. However, Aussiecollector did say that the A indicates grade of willow. Still as clear as mud!  :D

Dredging this one up. Just wondering what the deal is with the "A" stamped on the back down near the toe? Looking at pictures on here im pretty sure Ive seen two GN 50+, one with the A stamp, the other without. If it indicates the grade of willow,  should both bats be sold at the same price? I assume they are. Can anyone clarify? Thnx
It usually means Made in Australia.

So even the most recent 50mm gn Signatures were made prior to the new bat regulations?

Your Kit / Re: Vintage Bats

A 1980's era Maestro (as used by Tugga on the 89 Ashes tour).

Not sure whether to refurb or leave as is (I have taken the tape off - the bat has "tan lines").

Also removed munted grip in favour of a lime green one with blue tape.

 

I have a very similar (painted) maestro from my dad!

Maybe too much is being made of the aussie pace attack. Yeah, on a whole itll be quicker than the poms but thats not really the measure of how successful they'll be. The bowling comparison doesn't reflect the ability of your batting lineup to play pace. Which im assuming you can. And i can't imagine (as much as i hope) that Broad and Anderson have all of a sudden forgotten how to take wickets. So for me thats not a factor either. Itll be a tight series. Oh and Ecb and the plod will hurry stokes over as soon as they think any backlash will have subsided to a managable level. Likely in time for the second test. And that makes things even tighter. Can not wait for Thursday!!!

I think we (England) are going to really struggle to take wickets,can see the Aussies piling on the runs. I also think the extra pace that the Aussies have will make all the difference.Fear we will struggle...hope in wrong!
