There was some intense bidding for a wide range of cricket memorabilia at Osian’s Icons. The main focus at the auction was on the icons such as Don Bradman, Brian Lara, Garry Sobers, Richard Hadlee, Dennis Lilee and Sachin Tendulkar. In their lot, Brian Lara’s signed jersey went for Rs 40,000 after an intense round.

Bradman’s signed memorabilia was one of the biggest highlights, with many items attracting bids. His display comprising an Ashes cover and three photos went for Rs 33,000. Memorabilia related to Lara’s milestones went for a good price. A newspaper report and a signed photograph of his 375 and a newspaper poster of his 400 went for 30,000 each. Some of Tendulkar’s signed photographs and caricatures were also taken.

However, the highest bid of the day was for Abbas Ali Baig’s blazer of the 1959 tour of England. It was snapped for a whooping Rs 2,50,000. A photocopy of the scorecard of Anil Kumble‘s 10-for finally went for Rs 60,000.

One of the other interesting items was Hansie Cronje‘s signed jersey of South Africa’s first tour to India in 1991. However, the signed sketch and an ‘I forgive Hansie’ badge was picked. Even a signed bat of the South African team of that 1991 tour was taken for Rs 50,000.

India‘s training jersey of the ICC World Cup 1999 was taken for Rs 30,000. Even the ticket of the Eden Gardens Test of 2001, signed by VVS Laxman and Harbhajan Singh went for Rs 44,000.
