Speaking of Percy Holmes and his part in the famous 555 stand; is it the most famous or recognizable record or statistic in YCCC history?

What about 10-10, 341, 887 and 4,187 or even 208 & 2,385?
Didn't Stephenson do it for Notts against Yorkshire? And Yorkshire won the match

Ah, it was the 1989 B&H final v Essex - Stephenson got Brian Hardie with his slower ball. Cairns got both Read and Thorpe in the 99 test series with very similar deliveries (I think).
