Sir Don Bradman’s First ‘Baggy Green’ Cap Up For Auction

Sydney: The first baggy green cap ever given to Sir Donald Bradman is being auctioned to help pay the debts of the man he gifted it to.

Bradman gave the cap from his debut Test series in 1928/29 to a family friend, Peter Dunham, in Adelaide in 1959.

The Dunhams were family friends of the legendary batsman and their house backed on to the Bradman family home on the Parade in Kensington Gardens.

Bradman’s cap has been on loan to the State Library of South Australia since 2003, when Dunham donated it, and has been authenticated.

In May this year, Dunham, an accountant, was jailed for eight years and two months for scamming $1.3 million from his investors after being found guilty of fraud.
