Convery Auctions Ltd is a new auction house established by David Convery, the former Head of Sporting Memorabilia at Christies.

We missed out on this auction that was held a few weeks ago. Lots of rare vintage matchworn football shirts went under the hammer at Convery Auction House.

Convery Auctions Ltd is a new auction house established by David Convery, the former Head of Sporting Memorabilia at Christies. He brings over 19 years of experience from the auction world and has dealt with some of the most prestigious memorabilia collections in the world of sport such as the Bobby Moore and Geoff Hurst Collections. Convery Auctions Ltd specialises in Sporting Memorabilia including football, cricket, tennis, golf, boxing and the majority of other popular and traditional sports. At present two sales will be held each year

David Convery was an Associate Director of Christie’s and managed the highly successful Sporting Memorabilia Department at Christie’s South Kensington. As Head of the Department he was involved with the Private Treaty sale of The Bobby Moore Collection to West Ham United (July 2000) and the sale of the collection of Sir Geoff Hurst, which set a then world auction record of £91,750 (September 2000) for Sir Geoff's shirt worn during the 1966 World Cup final game.

In March 2002 this world record price was eclipsed by the sale of the 1970 World Cup final shirt worn by Pele, the shirt fetched £157,750. Other world auction record prices achieved under David’s charge include Alan Ball’s 1966 World Cup Winners Medal which sold for £164,800 and his 1966 World Cup Cap which sold for £43,200 and the 1888 F.A. Cup Final ball which sold for £45,000.

One of the many highlights from David’s Christie’s career was selling the Football Association Challenge Cup (1896 - 1910) which sold for a world auction record price of £478,000, the highest price for a piece of football memorabilia sold at auction.

I am aware of the fake jerseys you so carefully write about, I received from Dieter Haman sister in law (a close friend) his signed shirt along with all the other players signatures that participated in the champions league final in Istanbul.<br />In your opinion would this be of value if auctioned at Christies, I currently live in Spain, so not really sure what the procedure may be.<br />e-mail [email protected]
