Stanley Mathews football memorabilia

Posted on September 2, 2011 by Selby There have been 0 comments



Sir Stanley Mathews (1915-2000) football memorabilia is highly sought after especially hand signed photos, pictures, autographs, football programmes, signed presentations, signed footballs,  football attire and medals. An example would be the sale of his football boots worn when Blackpool overcame Bolton Wanderers in the 1953 cup final, the match worn boots were sold at auction by Bonhams for £38.400.

Mathews continued playing top level football until the age of 50; he was inducted into the football hall of fame2002 to honour his contribution to English football, which is not surprising as he was one of the most famous players of his generation if not of all time.

. Having made his international debut for England in 1934 He spent his pre and post years playing first division football initially signing for  Stoke City  in 1932, post war in 1947/48 he joined Blackpool FC. In 1957 he was awarded the CBE, in 1965 the year he received his Knighthood he also played his final football league match.

He played for England a total of 54 times.

His football biography “the way it was” released in 2000 if personally signed is a very collectable item of football memorabilia.

Should the reader have any hand signed football memorabilia I would always be pleased to hear from you.
