Used soccer jerseys sold for £ 2,300 on eBay – see if you have any

0


Those that mark a top club or player are the most sought after, but even worn and damaged jerseys are valuable to the right buyer.

It was the most expensive shirt owned by fans, although it was worn

Old football shirts sell for over £ 2,000 on eBay, and with the Euro 2020 tournament underway, now is a great time to check out if you own one of value.

While shirts that are signed or worn in matches tend to fetch the highest prices, fans still pay thousands of pounds for the type of replica shirts that are owned by many Premier League fans.

This could be because a jersey is from a famous club, bears the name or number of a star player, or was worn by the winning team at the time.

But while it all helps, the good news is that shirts don’t have to be in mint condition, or from reputable clubs, to be worth a lot of money. Even previously worn shirts can be invaluable to the right buyer.

Here are five of the most valuable UK soccer jerseys that have recently sold for a fortune.

1) Manchester City Home Kit 2013/14, £ 2,299








In 2013, City became the fastest club in Premier League history to score 100 goals

This large, short-sleeved men’s shirt recently sold as much as a used car, although it is wrinkled and with a few tears in the fabric.

But for a Sky Blues fan, it was worth it.

In 2013, City had a glorious season and became the fastest club in Premier League history to score 100 goals.

They went on to score 156 goals at the end of the season, breaking Manchester United’s previous record of 143 set in 1955/6.

Shirt for collectors, this long-sleeved shirt comes with its tags and original bag from the 1999/2000 season.

Although Manchester United left the Champions League in the second group stage at the time, this extra-large shirt proved irresistible to a buyer last month.

3) Manchester United jersey 1998/99, £ 1,200








Named after Ryan Giggs, this shirt is a collector’s item

The second of three Manchester United shirts on this list was also sold in mint condition in its original packaging.

The large long sleeve jersey is in good condition, but the key to its value is that it has Ryan Giggs’ name on the back – one of the most decorated footballers of all time.

Giggs won 13 Premier League winner’s medals during his period from 1990 to 2014 with the club.

4) Wimbledon FC – 1988 FA Cup Final Shirt, £ 750








Wimbledon FC used to be a small club, but this jersey has an incredible history

You might be surprised to see a jersey from a small club on this list. A smaller club, non-existent, in fact, since Wimbledon FC has not existed since 2004.

But football fans will recognize that this jersey is part of the history of the sport.

Against all odds, underdog Wimbledon FC won the FA Cup final 1-0 in 1988, against generally much better Liverpool FC.

Not only that, but the shirt was also sold in good condition and clearly made a Wombles fan happy.

5) Manchester United 1998/99 goalkeeper shirt, £ 750








Star goalkeeper and captain Peter Schmeichel’s replica jersey has been sold for £ 750

While Manchester United shirts can go for large quantities online, this one is bigger than most.

In the 1998/99 season, the team won not only the Premier League, but also the FA Cup and the UEFA Champions League.

It was also sold in mint condition and was a replica of the jersey worn by famous goalkeeper Peter Schmeichel, who led the club to victory this season.

Stay safe on eBay

You can find a lot of great deals on eBay. Many companies sell items cheaper on the auction site than in their own stores.

But beware, there are plenty of counterfeit items and questionable sellers out there looking to scam buyers.

To ensure your safety, eBay recommends that you:

  • Always finish shopping on the eBay site
  • Ignore “too good to be true” offers
  • Beware of emails with links and requests for your data
  • Use antivirus software on your computer
  • Beware of transactions where the seller and the item are in different locations
