  • Cricket star Shane Warne’s “baggy green” cap sold at auction for more than Aus$1 million (nearly $700,000) on Friday, with all funds going to help victims of bushfires raging in Australia.
  • The spin legend wore the cap during his 145-Test career, in which he took more than 700 wickets, and said he was blown away after a late bidding war pushed the price to Aus$1,007,500.
  • It far exceeded the Aus$425,000 paid at auction for the cap belonging to the legendary Donald Bradman when that was sold for charity in 2003. 
  • The item comes with an autographed certificate of authenticity from Warne. The identity of the successful bidder was not immediately known.
