Important artefacts of sporting history in the fields of Scottish, British and international football, curling, golf and much more feature in this, the only auction of Sporting Medals & Trophies in Scotland.

McTear's is proud to offer the collection of Celtic legend Stevie Chalmers. His 1967 European Cup winner’s medal will take centre stage along with his Scottish First Division, League Cup, Scottish Cup, Glasgow Cup and Commemoration Medal, being offered for sale as the most important group of Celtic medals ever to come to auction. 

Stevie Chalmers is considered one of Celtic’s greatest ever players with his 85th minute goal in the 2-1 win against Inter Milan in the European Cup final resulting in Celtic becoming the first British team to lift the illustrious trophy. 

The medals are part of a wider archive of historic items being put to auction by the family of the late Lisbon Lion. Another highlight of the collection is Pele’s match worn jersey, which he swapped with Chalmers (the Scotland goal scorer) at the end of Scotland’s 1- 1 draw with Brazil at Hampden Park in 1966. 

For a complimentary valuation on sporting medals and trophies please contact James Bruce or Hannah Murphy on 0141 810 2880 or auction@mctears.co.uk.
