Often marking an important moment in sporting history, sports medals and trophies have significance to more than just the recipient. Such objects have certainly proven popular at auction with sports fans and collectors alike, with past hammer prices ranging from the tens to the ten-thousands of pounds.
This auction features a host of sporting history from the worlds of football, golf and more. An unmissable auction highlight is a collection of medals and ephemera relating to footballing father and son duo James and Harry McMenemy, including a number of Jimmy's Celtic medals and his medal from Partick Thistle F.C.'s only Scottish Cup win.
Amongst the other unmissable lots included within this auction are a rare gold medal awarded to George Toone of Notts County in 1896, a late 19th century Scottish English league medal awarded to footballing legend Dan Doyle, an iconic Scottish Rugby World Cup jersey worn by David Sole, an impressively expansive sporting autograph album and a number of early 20th century silver sailing trophies.
