This will give proper sorting for values like A1, A2, A3, etc as well as values without a street number.

function naturalSorter(as, bs){
    var a, b, a1, b1, i= 0, n, L,
    rx=/(\.\d+)|(\d+(\.\d+)?)|([^\d.]+)|(\.\D+)|(\.$)/g;
    if(as=== bs) return 0;
    a= as.toLowerCase().match(rx);
    b= bs.toLowerCase().match(rx);
    L= a.length;
    while(i<L){
        if(!b[i]) return 1;
        a1= a[i],
        b1= b[i++];
        if(a1!== b1){
            n= a1-b1;
            if(!isNaN(n)) return n;
            return a1>b1? 1:-1;
        }
    }
    return b[i]? -1:0;
}

Then
arr.sort(function(o1, o2) {
    return naturalSorter(o1.t, o2.t);
});

HI!

Check if this helps.
<script>

var testCode = ['A10','B100','A2','AA1','AD200','32','11','A1'];
var rte = testCode.sort();

document.write(rte);
</script>

@navneethegde please check this test code .

var testCode = ['A10','B100','A2','AA1','AD200','32','11','1','2','10','100','A1'];

Thanks @Monika but its sort number correctly but not alphanumeric value

arr.sort(function(o1, o2) {
           var a = o1.t.split(/(\d+|\D+)/).filter(function(s){return s!=""});
           var b = o2.t.split(/(\d+|\D+)/).filter(function(s){return s!=""});
           for (var cmp = 0, i = 0; 0 == cmp && i < a.length && i < b.length; i++) {
             var n1 = a[i] - 0, n2 = b[i] - 0;
             if (!isNaN(n1) && !isNaN(n2)) 
               cmp = n1 - n2;
             else if (a[i] < b[i]) 
               cmp = -1;
             else if (a[i] > b[i])
               cmp = 1;
           }
           return cmp;
         })

Hi!
You can try the below one as well
the result of below is : 1,2,10,11,32,100,A1,A2,A10,AA1,AD200,B100

<script>
var reA = /[^a-zA-Z]/g;
var reN = /[^0-9]/g;
function sortAlphaNum(a,b) {
    var aA = a.replace(reA, "");
    var bA = b.replace(reA, "");
    if(aA === bA) {
        var aN = parseInt(a.replace(reN, ""), 10);
        var bN = parseInt(b.replace(reN, ""), 10);
        return aN === bN ? 0 : aN > bN ? 1 : -1;
    } else {
        return aA > bA ? 1 : -1;
    }
}

var testCode = ['A10','B100','A2','AA1','AD200','32','11','1','2','10','100','A1'].sort(sortAlphaNum);

document.write(testCode);

</script>

My suggestion

JSFIDDLE

function rxIndexOf(rx,arr) { for (var i in arr) {if (arr[i].toString().match(rx)) { return i; }} return -1; }
function splitAlp(str) { return {num  : str.replace(/[^0-9]+/ig,"")||"",alph : str.replace(/[0-9]/g,"") ||"" }}
function numSort(a,b) { if (a===b) return 0; return parseInt(a,10)>parseInt(b,10)?1:-1; }

function alpSort(a,b) {
    if (a===b) return 0;
    var a1 = splitAlp(a);
    var b1 = splitAlp(b);
    if (a1.alph>b1.alph && parseInt(a1.num,10)>parseInt(b1.num,10)) return 1;
    if (a1.alph==b1.alph && parseInt(a1.num,10)>parseInt(b1.num,10)) return 1;
    return -1;
}
var alp,num; 
var arr = "A10,B100,A2,AA1,2,AD200,32,11,A1".split(",").sort();
var idx = rxIndexOf(/[a-zA-Z]/,arr);
if (idx !=-1) {
    num = arr.slice(0,idx).sort(numSort);
    arr = arr.slice(idx).sort(alpSort);
}   
if (num) arr=arr.concat(num);
