    Boris Karloff Related - Evelyn Karloff's Cricket Club Membership Book. Boris Karloff used to describe himself as "the happy rabbit" of the Hollywood Cricket Club, played at every opportunity in the 1930s and thereafter followed the game avidly.

Also included is a medallion on a red string, the medallion's reverse reading, "Members must wear this medallion prominently to gain access to the Pavilion and Members' Enclosure." In Excellent condition. From the Boris Karloff Estate Collection. Accompanied by a letter of provenance from Sara Karloff Sparkman.

    The movie quite literally changed my life. I have included a pic of me in Sly's Rocky 3 Cashmere overcoat, would much appreciate if it is possible for you to forward this email to Sly to let him know the overcoat is in good hands, and will be well taken care of, (as will be the Rambo knife forging tools, the other lot I won!) Wish you very happy holidays and a great 2016!
