Sydney - The blazer worn by Australian cricketing great Donald Bradman during his first series as test captain sold for $91 410 (R1.3 million) on Monday, local media reported.
The green jacket with gold piping and the Australia crest on the breast pocket was worn by the batsman when he led the Australians against the English tourists in the 1936-37 Ashes series, which the home side won 3-2.
"This is the first (Bradman) blazer we've had up for auction, which is possibly why it sold so well," auctioneer Max Williamson said.
"It went beyond our expectations ... we're still shaking."
Anything related to Bradman, who retired with a Test batting average of 99.94, is a major attraction for collectors of cricket memorabilia.
