The piece of sandpaper at the centre of Australia's shameful ball tampering scandal is expected to fetch at least $10,000 at an auction - if it's ever found.
Experts believe the torn piece of sandpaper, which cricketer Cameron Bancroft shoved down his pants during a Test against South Africa, could sell for five figures.
Rick Milne, an expert in collectables and antiques, said the sandpaper could be one of the nation's most sought-after memorabilia if it ever lived to see an auction room.
The everyday coated abrasive could be bought in hardware stores at $5 for a 12-pack.
