    Need Some help with this!

    I have inherited a cricket bat made for Jack Hobbs and signed by at least 30 players including Hobbs and Donald Bradman. All signatures are in fountain pen. Can someone help me out as to where I might be able to see what its worth? Thanks.....Pete

    I"ve found out the entire England team, South African team, and most of the Australian team signed this bat during the 1955 when England played South Africa when both teams toured Australia. Im going to try to upload pictures for everyone to see. Thanks.....Pete

    Here is the link to the pics for this bat. Thanks again.... Pete

    I think a lot of people would be sceptical about it unless you have some way of proving it is genuine.

    I understand that. i do have no paperwork on this item. Signatures look about 50 years old though.

    Bats don't usually sell too well but that must be worth upwards of 1,000 if its kosher - try Knights auctioneers for some advice - www.knights.co.uk

    You'd be crazy to sell it unless you had some dire financial difficulties. I'd be buried with it if it was mine.

    You're crazy. It'd be worth a very decent amount if it was genuine.

    post your pictures as attachments to this thread so that we can see the quality of the bat and the signatures, also can you get a close up of the Don's signature.
