This 1963 England shirt with FA 100th anniversary embroidered crest patch - “CENTENARY YEAR 1863-1963” - recently sold at auction for £2600.

Originally prepared for the now late Jimmy Armfield, who went on to win the World Cup with England in 1966, the reverse carries a classic number 2 in traditional red on the understated white base.

Manufactured by Bukta, the shirt represents an inter-mundial period that saw the newly appointed Alf Ramsey laying the foundations of English football’s finest hour. Accordingly, bids took the item way beyond its £700-1000 estimate.

This item was sold by Graham Budd Auctions, a specialist in sporting memorabilia.
