A: Best to find a cricket memorabilia expert if you want an accurate valuation and to judge if you should have them insured above and beyond your normal household insurance. But we can tell you that West Indies played an LEG Ames XI at Hastings Aug 31 - Sept 2 in 1957 near the end of their tour of England. They won by four wickets, and the XI who played for West Indies were: NS Asgarali, AG Ganteaume, GS Sobers, OG Smith, RB Kanhai, FMM Worrell, BH Pairaudeau, FCM Alexander, R Gilchrist
DT Dewdney, S Ramadhin.
