The iconic Albion Hat & Cap Co baggy green caps worn by Australia’s cricket heroes turned pink in support of breast cancer awareness during the final test in Sydney this January.
Each baggy pink cap was signed by the players and then auctioned following the Pink Test.
The highest bid went to Michael Clark’s pink baggy cap at a price of $6,569.00. All money raised went to the McGrath Foundation, which was founded over 10 years ago after McGrath’s wife, Jane, was initially touched by breast cancer.
“We’re honoured to once again take a moment during the Ashes to provide pink baggy’s to Australian players to sign in support of Glenn and the McGrath Foundation, raising money for a cause that has been close to the Australian cricket world’s heart since 2002,” says Albion Sports CEO Brendan Denning.
“This year’s pink baggy auction raised over $99,804.00 for the McGrath Foundation and we’re looking forward to continuing our relationship with Cricket Australia and the McGrath Foundation for years to come.”
