    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 1930's and thereafter followed the game avidly. In 1991, 22 years after the star's death, the Surrey County Cricket Club awarded his widow, Evelyn Karloff, a Life Membership. The benefits included this handsome 2.5" x 4" book, the cover reading "Surrey County Cricket Club Life Member 1991" and the inside containing a sticker with Mrs. Karloff's printed name and address, a list of membership privileges, a calendar of the games and vouchers to attend. 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.
