Walsall, Wolves and Villa football history is up for sale in America
An historic programme cover from one of Walsall’s greatest ever victories is on auction in America – and it could cost as little as £12.
More than 700 pieces of football memorabilia are on sale in South Carolina, including rare items such as Gary Lineker’s final match worn England shirt against Sweden at Euro 1992 and a leather football with several autographs from England’s 1962 squad.
Included in the auction is the front cover of the programme for Walsall’s 2-0 win over Arsenal on January 14, 1933 – which is widely regarded as one of the greatest FA Cup upsets in English football history.
The Saddlers were in the Division Three Northern Section and hosted one of the country’s best sides in Herbert Chapman’s Arsenal, where 11,000 fans at Fellows Park watched goals from Gilbert Alsop and Bill Sheppard secure the third-round win.
The highest bid on this piece of history is currently $15 and fans can bid here until just after 7pm tomorrow evening.
Meanwhile, a replica shirt of Villa’s 1982 European Cup victory, signed by 16 members of the squad, is also on sale – currently fetching $675, with the auction ending here just before 5.20pm.
A signed Wolves shirt from 1998 currently only has one bid on it, for $5 – this auction ends here just after 3pm.
