Rare Imps football cap to go under the hammer

The Lincoln Auction Rooms is selling a group of early football programmes in their next collective sale on Wednesday 25th June.

Consigned by a life long supporter of Lincoln Football Club, the lot includes some rare 1940s programmes for matches against teams such as New Brighton, Gateshead and other teams no longer in the Football League. There are also some reserve team match and local derby match programmes against teams such as Grimsby and Doncaster Rovers.

In addition to the collection the same vendor has consigned a Lincoln sporting cap dating from 1923-4. The collection is split over three lots and expected to make in excess of £200.

The rest of the sale is in excess of 1300 lots and includes ceramics and glass featuring Lalique, Moorcroft, Clarice Cliff, Royal Crown Derby and Royal Doulton.  There are also well over 100 lots of silver and jewellery, including a pair of silver pheasants and a novelty pig shaped pin cushion. There is approaching 200 lots of pictures, 50 lots of books and a strong furniture section of some 400 lots catering for most tastes.

The Lincoln Collective Sale will be held at The Lincoln Auction Rooms on Wednesday 25th June at 10am. Viewing is Tuesday 24th June. 10am – 4pm and on the day of the sale from 8:30am.
