Astle Day shirt auction - just hours to go!

27 April 2015

Help raise money for The Jeff Astle Foundation

ALBION fans, here it is, the chance to get YOUR hands on an exclusive item of memorabilia which will truly stand the test of time.

How do you fancy owning one of the matchworn replica 1968 FA Cup-winning shirts which Baggies players donned to pay an historic tribute to club legend Jeff Astle in the recent Barclays Premier league clash against Leicester at The Hawthorns?

Jeff’s famous number nine shirt worn on the day by Saido Berahino. The number 11 shirt pulled on by club captain Darren Fletcher. Craig Gardner’s number eight jersey worn when he volleyed home in front of the Smethwick End. Each could be yours…

Astle Day was only the second time in the Premier League era that a club had been given special permission to wear a one-off shirt – stripped of names and branding and complete with original numbers - for such an occasion.

Now this is YOUR opportunity own a unique piece of history and, at the same time, donate vital funds to The Jeff Astle Foundation. 

All 18 unwashed matchday shirts are ready to be auctioned, complete with mud stains, to the highest bidders.

All proceeds from the auction will go to the Foundation so dig deep. 

The respective winners will also get the option to choose whether the player who wore their special shirt on the day signs the jersey. 

The shirts come complete with an authentication sticker and official certificate.

So without further ado, let the bidding commence!

Jeff passed away from chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE) in 2002 at the age of just 59.

The Foundation has been established as a fitting and lasting legacy to both raise awareness of brain injury in all forms of sport and to offer much needed support to those affected.
