We’re out of time - please help us now

In 2002, a rare collectible auctioned for £7,000. 

Today it's worth in excess of £15,000.

And yet, I’ve just sourced another one...

Put it for sale on my website...

And that's where. As you read this now....

You can buy it for just £5,995

Why am I selling it for far below market value? 

Because I need a fast sale. 

You see, I’m selling it for a local charity I’m involved with. And this charity needs funds. Now. 

Every penny from the sale will go to Clifton College’s 1970 Invicti Fund. 

It provides financial support to Clifton pupils from less affluent backgrounds with talent in sport.

The money helps them attend training camps and tours - activities their families simply can’t afford.

Every penny from the sale helps sports players at Clifton College from disadvantaged backgrounds A really worthy cause. But the fund’s coffers are depleted…

So I really need you to buy now. 

But what’s the item, Paul? 

A world-class rarity. 

Let me tell you a quick story.

It’s the early 1940s. 

And a sport-mad 23-year-old has arrived in the big city. 

He’s studying law. And in his spare time loves to play and watch football and cricket. 

When a big match is on at the cricket ground, he’s there in the stands. 

But he always comes away feeling upset. 

Because whenever he goes to watch cricket, the authorities only allow him to sit in one area. 

It's a small section of the ground. Poorly maintained. Away from the rest of the crowd.

This is the area set aside for “non Europeans”. 

In other words, people who aren’t white. 

People like Nelson Mandela.

A young Nelson Mandela - cricket fan

Mandela will never forget his early experiences of apartheid at the cricket ground. 

It will further inflame his sense of injustice. 

Yet also make him realise the potential of sport to unify the country. 

And that’s why, 50 years after being forced to watch cricket from a non-whites pen... 

  • He encouraged South Africans of all races to support the national cricket team
  • He championed the rise of star black players such as Makhaya Ntini
  • And why, in 2003, he wore a South Africa cricket shirt - an act of forgiveness unthinkable just two decades before

Today you have the opportunity to own a rare artefact. 

One that celebrates the importance that cricket played in forging Mandela’s new South Africa. 

A superb miniature cricket bat signed by Nelson Mandela and FW de Klerk.

Mandela and de Klerk have both signed your bat

Look at those signatures. So large and bold.

Mandela signs handsomely in black ink, de Klerk in blue

The bat is 12 inches. And it comes beautifully framed. Ready for immediate display on your wall. 

The two men received the Nobel Peace Prize in 1993 for ending apartheid in South Africa. And each has signed your bat. That’s extraordinary. 

And here’s possibly the most exciting part of all. 

Nelson Mandela signed cricket bats are incredibly rare. 

Of any size.

Genuine: I've fully authenticated both signatures  I'm aware of just three that have appeared for sale this millennium. 

Which explains why they're so valuable.

Guaranteed authentic

I’ve fully authenticated the bat myself. Both signatures are genuine.

Signed by two Nobel Peace Prize winners

And it has strong provenance. 

Nelson Mandela signed the bat circa 2000.

FW de Klerk subsequently signed the bat in early 2001 at the London home he shared with his second wife, Elita Georgiades. 

De Klerk signed it for a friend of his step-daughter's. 

The friend donated it to Sussex preparatory school Brambletye where it was auctioned at their summer ball in June 2001.

The auction raised money for the Sparrow Schools charity. It’s a British charity that supports disadvantaged school children in Johannesburg, South Africa. 

It is likely Mandela signed the bat in full knowledge it would be auctioned for Sparrow Schools. He was a supporter of the charity and spoke at their fundraising events. 

This is likely the only Mandela-signed cricket bat you will have the chance to own.
