The majority of his medal collection, including this lot, was bought by Wille Haughey, the Glaswegian businessman.

The last ever Celtic shirt worn by Henrik Larsson sold for £3,346 at the same sale, while the Stewart McKimmie Collection realized £8,349, his 1984 European Supercup winner's medal fetching £1,314.

The top lot of the sale, Pelé's shirt from Brazil's 1958 World Cup Final victory, sold for £70,505 to a telephone bidder who is a private collector, while Paul Gascoigne's shirt from the 1990 World Cup Semi-Final against Germany, in which he cried football's most famous tears, sold for £28,680. The buyer of the Gascoigne shirt was UK provate buyer, again on the telephone.

A WHITE ENGLAND WC 1990 INTERNATIONAL SHORT-SLEEVED SHIRT No.19,

Sold for: £28,680

 with v-neck collar and embroidered badge, inscribed FIFA World Cup, Italy '90, the front bearing numerous player autographs, including Gary Lineker, Peter Shilton, Chris Waddle etc, the reverse bearing autograph of Paul Gascoigne. The vendor won the competition held in The Observer, Sport Monthly, May 2002, No.26, Win the Shirt Gazza Cried Into, p.59.

The above shirt was worn by Paul Gascoigne in the England v. West Germany World Cup Semi-Final match in Turin on 4th July 1990. After defeating Belgium and Cameroon in the previous knock-out rounds, England faced West Germany for a place in the World Cup Final.

It was West Germany who took the lead after a first half of few chances, when Paul Parker deflected a Brehme free-kick which dipped agonizingly beyond Shilton's reach into the England net. The Manchester United full-back made amends though with ten minutes remaining, sweeping in a long ball which perplexed three Germany defenders, allowing Lineker to slip through with easeful control and a clinical finish.

England were performing heroics, becoming the first side in a World Cup to play extra time in three successive matches. Waddle and Buchwald hit the woodwork for each side and Platt had a goal ruled out for offside. However the emotional highpoint came when Gascoigne, who had already received a yellow card against Belgium, received his second booking of the tournament for a mistimed challenge on Berthold. The tears welled in his eyes as he realized he would miss the Final should England make it through.

After extra-time, the match went to penalties. With Chris Waddle and Stuart Pearce both missing their penalties, West Germany won 4-3. England went on to play Itlay for third-place position. Without the suspended Paul Gascoigne, England lost 2-1.

In more than 1,000 matches for Santos, he won nine championships in the Sao Paulo League, four Brazil Cup medals and two each from the South American Cup and World Club Championship. Without doubt, the greatest footballer ever Pele won his first of two World Cups with Brazil in 1958 as a 17 year old.

Celtic F.C. became the first British Club and the only Scottish Club, so far, to win the coveted European Cup this year by defeating Inter Milan 2-1 in the final, played at the Estadio Nacional, Lisbon on 25th May 1967 before 54,000 spectators.


Inter Milan scored the opening goal in the game, with Mazzola scoring in just 8 minutes. Tommy Gemmell scored Celtic's equalizer in the 63 minute, with Steve Chalmers scoring the winner in the 85th minute. On their way to this historic win Celtic defeated F.C.Zurich 5-0 on aggregate; F.C.Nantes 6-2 on aggregate; Vojvodina Novi Sad 2-1 on aggregate; and in the semi-final Dukla Prague 3-1 on aggregate.


Bobby Murdoch was a creative midfielder who made his debut for Glasgow Celtic in August 1962, and went on to make 484 appearances and score 105 goals for the Hoops. He is most famous for being a major influence in the Celtic team of 1966/67 that won every competition they entered. On 25 May 1967 in Lisbon, this Celtic team, made up entirely of Scottish nationals, beat Inter Milan 2-1 in the Final of the European Cup. In doing so, they became the first British side ever to win the competition, and it was a Murdoch shot, knocked in by Stevie Chalmers, that decided the match. The 'Lisbon Lions' reached the European Cup Final again in 1970, but were defeated by Feyenoord.


The Collection includes the European Cup Winner's Medal of 1967 that was awarded to Murdoch (estimate: £8,000-12,000), his European Cup runners-up medal from 1970 (estimate: £2,000-3,000) as well as four Scottish Cup Winner's medals from 1965, 1967, 1969 and 1972 (estimate: £1,200-1,800 each), three Scottish Championship medals from 1967-68, 1969-70 and 1970-71 (estimate: £1,000-1,500 each), five Scottish League Cup medals from between 1965 and 1970 (estimate: £300-500 each) and a comprehensive collection of other medals, shirts and caps spanning his illustrious career.


The Stewart McKimmie Collection of shirts, caps and medals, including the 1983 European Super Cup winner's medal won with Aberdeen (estimate: £800-1,200), is also on offer. McKimmie made over 400 appearances for Aberdeen between 1983 and 1997, and made 40 International appearances for Scotland. Having been signed by then-manager Alex Ferguson from Dundee, the Aberdeen-born defender went on to play in the European Super Cup Final victory over Hamburg and was a strong performer during Aberdeen's League Championship wins of 1983-84 and 1984-85. The Collection includes Scottish Cup Winner's medals from 1983-84, 1985-86 and 1989-90 (estimate: £800-1,200 each), Scottish League Championship medals from 1983-84 and 1984-85 (estimate: £700-1,000) and Scottish League Cup Winner's medals from 1985, 1989 and 1995 (estimate: £150- 00 each) as well as a selection of other medals, shirts and caps.


Another highlight of the sale is the football shirt worn by Celtic legend Henrik Larsson in his last ever match for Celtic (estimate: £3,000-5,000). Larsson, who has moved to Barcelona after 7 years at Celtic, played his last match for the Glasgow club in a 1-0 win against Seville on 25 May 2004. Having been signed by Celtic for £650,000 in 1997, Larsson went on to score 242 goals in 315 games and cement his reputation as one of the greatest ever players in Scottish football.
