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
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.
