  Lot 1912


match worn by Tommy Gemmell (of St Mirren FC) in his two only international matches, with embroidered Scottish Football Association badge, with sewn numbers '10' in white to reverse, with Umbro Tangeru and The Sportsmans Emporium, Glasgow labels, size 40

Note: Tommy Gemmell (1930 - 2004) was a Scottish footballer who played as an inside forward for St. Mirren F.C. for his entire senior football career. Although also capped for the Scotland national team - playing twice in May 1955 and scoring one goal for Scotland - Gemmell is best known as one of the Saints. Gemmell made over 250 league appearances for the club and aided their 1959 Scottish Cup campaign, where they reigned victorious in the final for just the second time in St Mirren's history. This Scottish International Jersey was worn by Tommy during his international games. In May 1955 he played for Scotland in a 2-2 draw against Ugoslavia and a 3-0 win against Portugal, scoring a goal in the latter match.

Provenance: The archive of the late Tommy Gemmell, this lot included, is offered at auction on behalf of the family of the late player.
