A recent auction house sale has seen a 1971 shirt match-worn by Stoke City’s John Mahoney fetch £2600.

Estimated to make between £700 and £1000, the vintage item apparently benefitted from its iconic nature, featuring as it did in a controversial FA Cup semi-final draw with Arsenal - the Gunners went on to win the replay on their march to their first League and Cup Double.

Originally sold by John Mahoney himself in 2002, the long-sleeved shirt boasts an embroidered crest, and stitched number on the rear and is otherwise the clean design you would expect from that particular era.

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