Auctioneer Charles Leski holds up the first cricket bat used by Sir Donald Bradman in his Test career and which will be auctioned off in Melbourne. The bat did not see much action in that first Test, but is expected to fetch up to US$100,000 when auctioned. Bradman was dropped after an inauspicious debut in which he scored 18 and one in Australia's 675-run thrashing by England in the first Test in Brisbane in 1928-29. The bat was signed by the entire 1928-29 Australian team as well as the conquering English who won the series 4-1. Forty-seven signatures in total are on the bat. Melbourne, September 24, 2008
