Sachin Tendulkar’s bat
I think this is going to be the show-stealer. There is no need to add anything more to the fact that it is the bat with which he scored his hundredth hundred. Starting bid: Rs.2,00,000

Roger Federer’s racquet
I am really looking
forward to the auctioning of Roger’s racquet because it is close to my heart. I see a lot of tennis fans are really excited about the new products that we have on offer for this auction. Starting bid: Rs.2,00,000

Cristiano Ronaldo’s jersey
Ronaldo and Messi have been newly signed by us this year. Ronaldo’s jersey in particular is going to be a great hit at the auction because of how famous he is and how crazy people in India are about football.Starting bid: Rs.1,50,000
