The most expensive book ever on cricket – the first copy of the Sachin Tendulkar Opus has already attracted a huge bid of $ 350,000. The Opus would weigh a 37kg, with over 700 pages of more than 1,000 photos (many of them rare and unseen from Tendulkar’s personal collection).
Opus Media Group CEO Karl Fowler confirmed that it has been working on Sachin Tendulkar Opus, which has been waiting for the biggest moment in the cricketer’s life when he becomes the first to complete a century of centuries in international cricket. Waiting for Sachin to score his 100th ton… We have been working for four years now on Sachin Tendulkar Opus with Sachin, Fowler said.
The Opus will have only 10 copies of it, each of which will be hand-bound and encased in a fine leather and silk cover. The Opus will also come in different editions as well as in a digital version.
A few years ago, someone had bid $ 250,000 for copy No. 1. We’re beyond that. It’s gone up, above $ 350,000. Copy No. 1 we are going to do something special with. We’ve people who pre-ordered the Tendulkar Opus four years ago, Fowler told Mail Today.
We are going to do something with the first 10 editions. We are still thinking what the price will be. They’ll be special for certain reasons. They’ll come with some added features. They may come with some memorabilia from Sachin’s playing career, he added. [Tendulkar Opus]
