A cricket bat used by cricket legend Sir Donald Bradman and signed by his 1948 Invincible team-mates is expected to fetch up to $25,000 when it's auctioned later this month.

Charles Leski, whose company is selling the item, says Bradman used the Skyes bat to score 115 in his final first-class innings at home before the team travelled to England in 1948.

They went on to become - and remain - the only Australian side to go through an entire Ashes tour unbeaten.
