Product Details

Arguably the finest piece of cricket memorabilia available in Australia at this time.

Simply incredible.

The famous Duncan Fearnley "Magnum" - used by Allan Border in series v India and England in 1981 including in innings of 85 against India at the SCG and 73 against England at Lord's during the 1981 Ashes series.

The SCG and Lord's amongst other grounds.

Includes a letter of provenance from Duncan Fearnley himself in which he states that he custom-made the bat for Allan Border in 1980.

Decorated to the face with two unique portraits of Border by the artist, Mike Tarr.

The bat was gifted by Allan Border to Duncan Fearnley and is inscribed by Allan Border: 'To Duncan. Best wishes Allan Border'. One worm hole to face and small dent to toe end, otherwise in very good condition.

Surely as good as it gets in cricket memorabilia. As good as it gets.

Can be superbly framed or can be housed in a bat case readily available on eBay and elsewhere.

Interest-Free Instalment Option: 4 monthly payments of $930.00 (unframed) or $1,010.00 (framed). The item is shipped after the final payment is made.

Allan Border amassed 11,174 Test runs (a world record until it was passed by Brian Lara in 2005). He hit 27 centuries in his Test career. He retired as Australia's most capped player and leading run-scorer in both Tests and ODIs. His Australian record for Test Match runs stood for 15 years before Ricky Ponting overtook him during the Third Ashes Test against England in July 2009.

Border was one of the 55 inaugural inductees of the ICC Cricket Hall of Fame.

Allan Border led the fightback of Australian cricket from its dark days when winning was rare. His qualities paved the way for Steve Waugh, Mark Taylor and Ricky Ponting to build on his legacy as Australia became the world's best cricketing nation.
