Ricky Ponting - First Class Limited Edition Signed Retirement Cricket Bat
LAST TWO REMAINING!
AUSTRALIA'S greatest run-scorer, Ricky Ponting, will retire after the Perth Test against South Africa, ending one of the most distinguished cricketing careers of all time. The Tasmanian has compiled an astonishing record, scoring 13,366 Test runs at an average of 52.21, after an illustrious 17-year career. He is the second highest run scorer of all time behind Sachin Tendulkar. Only Tendulkar has played more Tests and Ponting will equal Steve Waugh’s Australian record of 168 Tests in Perth.
Ponting led Australia to unprecedented success in Tests and one-dayers during his tenure as captain. This limited edition of just 257 includes a full pictorial and statistical history of his career, and his record four Allan Border Medals. The limited edition is authorised by Cricket Australia and is also accompanied by a certificate of authenticity and A-Tag authentication.

- Champions Difference
As sports fans, we all want excellence from our favourite players, teams and clubs. Why should we expect anything less than perfection for our sports memorabilia?
Not all memorabilia is the same… Champions sell athlete endorsed memorabilia.

Champions understand the thrill that comes from touching history. That is why we specialise in supplying unique pieces of sports memorabilia for even the most discerning fan.
Discover why Champions are Australia's Leading Experts in Memorabilia and Jersey Framing. Champions provide our clients with two framing options - standard framing which is similar to what you will see elsewhere and Champions quality framing which includes a higher quality of acid-free framing materials, UV Clear glass (to minimise the fading of your memorabilia and signatures) and conservation mounting techniques (such as jersey hand stitching).
