Assuming you are happy with different stickers, these are relatively easy to get hold of, if you get the cheque book out.

Indeed, no idea why but when it came to TK/Newbery Mike always seemed to be able to get that something extra special. Maybe he was just good at threatening them  :D

Original Kook bubble would be a lovely find or a V500 as used by Alec Stewart both iconic bats to be and had both that were amazing but getting quality now is very hard

The Bubble was a fantastic bat but they seemed to break quixkrt than any bat I have known.  You would rarely see one make it to June without needing at least one roll of bat tape to hold it together

Like most on here a Screaming Cat and also maybe a genuine ACE bat made by the late Alf Evans with the original livery.

Although I do get bats off James at JEDi. Still see a few people using ACE bats and they are still going on strong.

Technically not cricket specific, but Oakley G26 lenses. Was lucky enough to buy a spare pare of the lenses 2 years ago for $50 when they were on clearance. The shop had 3 left but I just bought the one. Regretting not buying more now as the G26 aren't sold by the stores anymore and $50 was a ridiculously good price.

Canterbury bowling trousers. They came with a towel that clipped onto the inside of the waistband and a special panel around the thighs for polishing the ball. I don't think they make them any more.

Other than that I've probably got better kit than at any other time previously thanks to lurking around cbf and learning from all you lovely folk

I think it was the story that went with them that made the talisman bats special.

My special perfect storm turned out to be a Larsons, with that said it was a rocket

I had a Gray Nicolls Powerspot GIANT from 1992 ish. Absolute beast of a bat. Best bat i have ever had. Hit some big scores and huge 6's with it.

I also had the funky looking Stuart Surridge Pads that Graham Gooch wore, they had like round kneecap kind of detail on the front.

The new Prizm cricket lenses are better in my experience. G26 were lovely though.
