You can step into Roger Federer's shoes, swing his Wilson Pro staff or wear his Wimbledon cardigan—indulging your inner Fed fantasies will come at a cost.

Roger Federer is serving up some of his personal tennis treasures for sale to benefit his charitable foundation.

More: Djokovic Will Skip Madrid

Christie’s London will phost to The Roger Federer Collection, two unique auctions of the 20-time Grand Slam champion's cherished gear and apparel from several of his most memorable major runs.

A live auction is set for June 23rd at 7 p.m. BST in London with a complementary online auction conducted from June 23rd-July 14th. Proceeds benefit the Roger Federer Foundation, which provides educational and social program support in South Africa and Switzerland.

Fittingly, the collection highlights some of the eight-time Wimbledon winner's history at SW19. 

Lot 17, Federer's autographed Wilson and the Nike cardigan he wore at the 2012 Wimbledon is expected to fetch €40,000 to €60,000. Lot 10, the Nike outfit and Wilson racquet Federer used en route to the 2007 Wimbledon crown is estimated to earn 
€30,000 to €50,000 with Lot 13 bound to be a precious commodity: it is the champion's outfit and racquet Federer wielded winning his lone Roland Garros championship in 2009. That lot is expected to go for €50,000 to €70,000.

Federer's philanthropy, desire to offer some items affordable to every day fans—and perhaps a desire to clean out his closet—all combine to create the massive online collection. It is comprised of 300 lots spanning virtually the 39-year-old Swiss superstar's entire career.



The online auction includes items from Federer's first Olympic appearance at the 2000 Sydney Games where he began dating future wife, Mirka, as well as Federer match wear and gear from historic clashes with rivals Rafael Nadal, Novak Djokovic, Andy Murray, Andy Roddick and Andre Agassi.

"The sale has been curated to appeal to Federer fans around the world and Roger has personally expressed his wish to include accessible estimates starting from £100," Christie's London said. "Browse and bid on lots including tennis racquets signed by the Swiss icon interspersed with shirts, caps, wristbands, towels and a famous Wimbledon blazer."

The Christie's auctions come three years after Federer, who had worn Nike clothes and shoes throughout his pro career, walked on Wimbledon Centre Court wearing new white Uniqlo apparel and a matching headband along with his familiar Nike shoes.

When Federer returned to action in Doha earlier this year he was sporting The Roger Pro shoe he created in collaboration with Swiss shoemaker On. Federer, who has regained control of his trademark "RF" logo which is now sold by Uniqlo, is divesting the Swoosh brand from his personal collection and using the funds raised to support his RF Foundation.
