World Cup 1966 No.7 semi-final shirt

These are the sales results of the football shirts auctioned at Bonhams Sporting Memorabilia auction - CHESTER, 27 Feb 2008

Lot No: 282

World Cup 1966 No.7 semi-final shirt
Umbro white long-sleeved England shirt embroidered with three lions badge and red number 7 to rear. This shirt was believed to be worn by Alan Ball in the World Cup semi-final on 26th July 1966 v Portugal, Alan Ball informed the vendor that it was the semi-final shirt and the vendor has sworn an affadavit to that effect. Lot includes Alan Balls Everton wageslip from 24th January 1970 and a postcard sent from Englands Mexico 1970 training camp to the vendor by Alan Ball.
Footnote:
The first semi-final to take place in 1966 was that between England and Portugal. This match in contrast to the second semi-final turned out to be an exciting game. Bobby Charlton upstaged Eusebio with what many believe was his finest ever game for England and he even received congratulatory handshakes from the Portuguese after his spectacular second goal. The most poignant image of this game was Eusebio’s tears as he left the pitch heartbroken in defeat.


Estimate: £8,000 - 10,000

Manchester United 1958 Busby Babes' blazer

Lot No: 292

Manchester United 1958 Busby Babes' blazer
Official Manchester United players black blazer produced by 'Society Wear', embroidered with club badge to left lapel. This blazer was issued to and worn by Busby Babe Kenny Morgans. Kenny still lives in Swansea and about 25 years ago local publican John Davies persuaded him to part with the blazer. Lot includes hand signed photograph of Kenny Morgans with the blazer and a letter of authenticity signed by Kenny Morgans. It is one of only two believed to be still in existence, the other being in the Manchester United museum.

Footnote:
Kenny Morgans, one of the Busby Babes, born Swansea March 16th 1939, had just broken into the team, and at the age of 18 was already staking his claim to be first choice for the coveted number 7 shirt after making his debut against Leicester on 21st December, he then put in some excellent performances and unexpectedly ousted Johnny Berry from the right wing position. He played in the European Cup at Old Trafford on January 14th against Red Star Belgrade and again on 5th February 1958 in the away fixture. He survived the tragic air disaster at Munich on 6th February and went on to play in both semi-final games against AC Milan. The air crash left its mark on this likable 19 year old Welsh lad, who could not fulfil his early promise when he looked set to be a firm favourite for many years to come and secure a regular place in the team. He made a total of only 21 games for United four being in the European Cup 1958.


Estimate: £8,000 - 10,000

I have an autograph given to me by David Beckham when he was still in his early days - meaning just about made his debut. His signature has changed so much since then! Dad had told me to ask him for the autograph, because he had seen an article on a newspaper that he was going to be the kid with the golden booth, so I did. He was very shy at the time. It is probably very rare since once he became famous, his signature changed... My email address is [email protected]
