Sir Donald Bradman’s blazer up for auction

If clothes maketh the man then you too could be as great as Sir Donald Bradman with one of the cricket legend’s Test blazers going under the hammer in September.

Worn by Bradman in his first Test series as Australian captain in 1936, he personally donated the green wool blazer in 1974 as part of a charity auction.

This piece of cricketing history hasn’t been available since then and is expected to fetch between $70,000 and $90,000 when it goes under the hammer in Melbourne on September 7.

Sporting memorabilia specialist Max Williamson says the blazer became a part of Australia’s national identity.

Bradman, who stood only 170cm tall, had the blazer custom made by popular Sydney department store Farmers and it was embroidered with the Australian Coat of Arms and ‘D.G. Bradman’.
