DON Bradman enthusiasts will have a rare opportunity to get close to the cricket legend at Harrow in March.
Harrow Discovery and Johnny Mullagh Interpretive Centre plans to allow people to handle with gloves a Bradman baggy green from 1946-47.
The centre has housed one of the world's largest Bradman collections since April.
A private collector from Adelaide, who prefers to be known as 'Mr Moyle', lends pieces to the centre on a rotating basis.
Centre manager Ange Newton said the photo opportunity with The Don's cap would be 'pretty huge'.
"Knowing this is the closest that people will ever get to Bradman, this is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity," she said.
"The baggy green is a one-of-a-kind. Bradman wore it in his post-war Test career. It has his DNA all over it.
"We are planning this event for the Labor Day long weekend in March, to coincide with the National Bush Billycart Championships at Harrow.
"Mr Moyle gifted this cap to us because he was impressed with how we have maintained the collection here.
"We now have virtually his entire collection. We were overwhelmed with the gift of the cap and it's an enormous honour."
The baggy green arrived on January 9.
Mrs Newton said it was authentic because it came with Bradman's business card and a 1959 letter from Bradman to the cap's past recipient.
"This is one of the most valuable items we have," she said.
