The Yahoo! New Zealand Northern Knights are once more giving the shirt off their back to raise money for the New Zealand Breast Cancer Foundation.


The Yahoo! New Zealand Northern Knights squad has autographed their most recent edition of pink HRV Cup playing shirts and put them up for auction on TradeMe, with 100 per cent of the funds raised as a result being donated to their charity partner, the NZBCF.


With the reserve for each player's shirt set at a modest $50, it's a great chance for New Zealand cricket fans to score a collector's item - each carrying the player's name in unmistakable big bold letters. Frame it up for the bar, the office or the hall and you've got an immediate talking point!


BLACKCAPS stars with their shirts up for auction include Kane Williamson, Tim Southee, Scott Styris, Brent Arnel and Pete McGlashan. Daniel Vettori has also autographed his pink 2011 HRV Cup shirt - a real one-off item since BLACKCAPS captain Dan was rested for the series and his specially-made shirt never saw the light of day. Yes, Dan's shirt is in as-new condition!

With no less than a third of the New Zealand A side named yesterday hailing from the Knights team, chances are the shirts of Daniel Flynn, BJ Watling, Brad Wilson, Trent Boult and ND Player of the Year Graeme Aldridge could be real scores, with those form players now very close to either BLACKCAPS recalls or being called up to the BLACKCAPS side for the first time.
 

International stars Herschelle Gibbs (South Africa) and David Warner (Australia) guested for the Knights last summer and have joined in, autographing their pink Knights playing shirts and putting them up for auction to help raise funds for the Breast Cancer charity too.


The auctions are live, bidding is already underway and great bargains are still available - get in quick because it's a short sharp auction with bidding closing on Tuesday (June 21). See all the listings at a glance by clicking this link:
