Mumbai: Sachin Tendulkar`s gloves which he wore while scoring his 100th international century will be displayed in an exhibition, featuring rare and historically significant memorabilia of Indian cricket, here on November 15.

The organisers, Tata Literature Live! The Mumbai LitFest 2013, has planned a tribute for Tendulkar who will retire from Test cricket after playing his landmark 200th match here from November 14-18.

"A special section of the presentation would be dedicated solely to Tendulkar, and will carry the priceless
gloves with which he scored his 100th century among other things," it said in a statement.

The event will bring forth a unique collection of artefacts, pictures and other memorabilia dating back to over a century, and the memorable moments in the history of Indian cricket.

It will also display items such as a letter from a first class cricket ball maker giving the rates of a ball, another from a Maharaja to CK Nayadu and the 1983 World Cup stamp.

"That apart, the exhibition will be a window to the lives and times of Indian cricketers of the yore through postcards, souvenirs, stamps and framed photographs," it said.
