Easdale Island 2008 Celebrating 12000 runs - Sachin Tendulkar with his personal autograph

Issue date 2008

8 Stamps of Sachin Tendulkar with a Central Flag Label on a Miniature Sheet issued by Easdale Island - Scotland, showing the Great Indian Cricketer, Sachin Tendulkar, commemorating his scoring 12,000 Runs in Test Cricket with his personal autograph on the plastic of miniature sheet. You will notice his signature on the stamps as well.

Sachin Tendulkar became the highest scorer in Test cricket after surpassing West Indian legend Brian Lara (11,953 runs in test cricket) in the second Test in Mohali on 17 October 2008. 

Sachin Tendulkar made his Test debut at the tender age of 16 against Pakistan in 1989 in Karachi.

Sachin Tendulkar reached another coveted landmark by completing an astounding 50,000 runs in competitive cricket across all formats on 05 October 2013 against the West Indies.

To preserve the mint condition of the miniature sheet - the sheet was signed on the plastic containing the miniature sheet. The autograph was obtained through a mutual friend of Mr. Sachin Tendulkar. (Huge thanks to him for the one time kind favour...and sorry the miniature sheet is not for sale and no special request for autographs please).
