Description :

Example of newspaper poster included in cricket memorabilia of Donald George Bradman.

Sir Donald Bradman is regarded by many as the greatest batsman in the history of cricket and is one of Australia's most revered sporting personalities. Bradman's overall performance in Shield and Test cricket is still without parallel. His Test average was 99.94 and his Test aggregate 6,996 runs. In 96 Sheffield Shield innings he averaged 110.19.

Bradman was selected to play for the New South Wales Sheffield Shield side in December 1927. In January 1930, Bradman's score of 452 not out in the second innings against Queensland became - and still remains - the highest score ever made in a first-class match in Australia.

Period : 1927-1939
