The most valuable piece of cricket history is Austalian cricketer, Sir Donald Bradman's 1948 cap. In June 2003 Tim Serisier, a Who Wants to Be a Millionaire winner bought the cap in a pre-auction deal with Ludgrove's auctioneers from Bradman's Godson for A$425,000 (US$283,000 or £170,000). Bradman wore the cap on the 1948 tour of England when he scored the last of his 29 test centuries and then when he made the most famous duck in cricketing history in his final Test appearance. Sir Donald Bradman died in 2001 aged 92.
