Derbyshire-based Hansons Auctioneers is putting the eight shirts on sale which are both Three Lions’ kits and their opponents’ jerseys from the team’s run to the semi-finals.
Charles Hanson, owner of the auction firm, said the shirts could sell for a collective £300,000 but is not at liberty to disclose whose shirts they are.
“He played a crucial role in Italia 1990 and enjoyed a stellar career in football,” Mr Hanson said of the player. Peter Shilton, Gary Lineker, John Barnes, and Paul Gascoigne were among the 22 who helped England reach the semi-finals where they lost on penalties to Germany.
Indeed, Shilton’s signed jersey is the one England kit going on sale. The other shirts are from Republic of Ireland’s Andy Townsend, Johannes van’t Schip from the Netherlands, Egypt’s Sader Eid, Belgium’s Marc van der Linden, Emmanuel Kunde from Cameroon, West Germany’s Klaus Augenthaler, and Italy’s Giuseppe Giannini.
The final one was collected after England lost to Italy in the third place play-off.
Mr Hanson added: “This unique set of retro shirts sweeps us back to a tournament that will stay forever etched in millions of memories.”
