This 19th-century Queen’s Park shirt, advertised as being match worn by Hugh Smith, recently went on sale at auction.

Believed to be from 1895 - making it almost 130 years old - the long-sleeved black-and-white-hooped article with an asymmetrical button-up neck is from the years before player identification through numbering but does feature a small embroidered H.

Reaching a hammer price of £5,500 - inside the £5,000-8,000 estimate - the item is a true relic of the beautiful game’s early eras in Scotland.

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