The football memorabilia market keeps going from strength to strength. We usually curate mixed sports memorabilia auctions but such has been the depth of interest in football collectibles that for the first time in a very long while we have presented an entire auction dedicated to the ‘beautiful game’. The auction encompasses a wide variety of memorabilia including medals, caps, autographs, programmes, books and other paper memorabilia; but is particularly strong with jerseys and has over 400 examples dating from the 1920s to the modern era. There is sure to be something to interest everyone with over 1,000 lots going under the hammer.
