Mark Cavendish signed prints bring $1,781 in Rapha charity auction

A set of signed prints of both Mark Cavendish and David Millar have auctioned among a stunning range of cycling memorabilia.

The items sold as part of cycling clothing company Rapha's Bordeaux-Paris 2013 Challenge charity auction, which closed on September 17.

The prints sold for £1,120 ($1,781) on eBay. Proceeds from the sale will benefit the charity Ambitious about Autism, which is close to company founder Simon Mottram's heart as his son suffers with the disability.

The unique prints were donated by renowned portrait photographer Nadav Kandar.

Cavendish proved to be a favourite in the auction, with his signed Omega Pharma Quickstep jersey selling for £972 ($1,545).

Also featuring was a signed 1986 Tour de France "best young rider" white jersey worn by US cyclist Andy Hampsten, which still bears foie gras stains from a celebratory food fight with his La Vie Claire teammates. It made £955 ($1,518).

The auction also offered a Team Sky replica jersey, which was signed by the whole Sky team. It sold for £797 ($1,267).

Following was a signed Bradley Wiggins jersey, which made £620 ($985), and a signed Chris Hoy skin suit, which sold for £312 (496).

In October 2012, the gold throne on which Bradley Wiggins celebrated his Olympic victory was offered at auction for $24,000, but failed to meet its estimate.

The sale also saw a number of rare bikes for sale, with a Pinarello Lungavita signed by Fausto Pinarello leading at £1,080 ($1,718).

Paul Fraser Collectibles offers an excellent range of sports memorabilia for sale, including signed items from the disgraced Lance Armstrong.
