Mumbai: A bat signed by the Indian, Australian and Pakistani teams fetched the highest bid of Rs 12,50,000 at an auction, the first of its kind in India, held here on Thursday.The auction of Sir Don Bradman's memorabilia and other cricket items was organised by former Aussie cricket captain Kim Hughes and Michael Ludgrove in association with a cricket portal was held at the Oberoi pool side here on Thursday.However, the main Bradman memorabilia did not generate much interest even the opening bids were quite low. Some of the proceeds from this auction will go the Gujarat earthquake victims.However, such a noble sentiment also could not get people to bid on a bigger basis.Harsh Goenka with a bid of $ 5,000 got the framed picture of the 20th century Test captains.The other memorabilia included some of Bradman's photographs from his playing days all signed by him and also some rare photographs of the great cricketer all signed by the man himself.
