Any Cricket fans around?

Hi guys,

just wondering if anyone has, or knows what this bat i have would be worth?

Its from the 1985 benson and hedges world tour, and is signed by india, australia and new zealand.









I got it when i was a kid (1st bday to be exact) and i'm not interested in selling it, just wondering if it's rare, etc..

The signatures are all written directly on the bat, i.e: not printed on or transferred.

Any help appreciated, thanks.

It's worth nothing, bring it to the next meet and we'll bash some random E-Series parts around a bit

Hey, that's not bad at all Yagz! I have no idea what it would be worth, but surely there is something on its label saying how many were made, and hence how rare it is....

Re: Any Cricket fans around?

lol @ rob.. stuff the CFI rackets, Yagz has a cricket bat!!!!

Unless you have a certificate of authenticity it wouldn't be worth *much*. Still a very cool thing to own though. Can you make out any of the sigs ?

Re: Any Cricket fans around?

ah, dad has in his posession a bat given to him when he was a kid (he was Sonny in skippy [older people in the forums would know who that was], so that probably had something to do with how he got it), from someone sir donald bradman gave to after using it in a test match, and is stamped with a number one seal (it was the first bat in a series if i can remember correctly) and hand-signed by bradman himself. since the don is no longer among us, I imagine this bat might be worth a bit? the bat has been kept in a complete plastic casing the whole time.

on the topic of the benson & hedges bat, it is signed by those three teams (well, australia and india anyway ) and from the tour so it would probably be pretty valuable i would have to say

Re: Any Cricket fans around?

Thanks for the info guys..

The bat itself is inside a hard plastic cover, to protect the signatures.. I don't have a COA, but could easily get one for a reputable signature/autograph place..

Damo, yeah, the sigs can be made out.. In the last pic up there, you can see greg ritchie, and there's a few more, such as alan border, etc..

The bats in good nick too, for being almost 20 years old!

Re: Any Cricket fans around?

With rare collectibles you know what they say, It's only worth what someone is willing to pay for it & as you're not selling it you wont get many offers.
You can have pretty much anything "valued" so perhaps you could do that whilst getting a COA. Then put it back in that plastic case and pass it on to your 1st son.
I think with the amount of signatures on there it'd be worth a bit. Even more in future generations.
(i was gonna say when they're all dead but that's a bit cold)

Congratulations. You are still alive. Most people are so ungrateful to be alive, but not you. Not anymore.

Re: Any Cricket fans around?

That would be worth at least a few thousand YAGZ, I would suspect at the right auction you could probably get 3 or 4 thousand for it.

Now the proud owner of an AU xr8 220... OHHH YeAh
