Two England international caps worn by a Preston North End legend are set to sell for upto £2,400 at auction.
The caps, which were worn by John Goodall, are going under the hammer later this month.
The two caps, one white and one red, are expected to reach up to £1,200 each when they go up for auction in Newbury on March 14/15.
The white cap was awarded to John for the match against Ireland and has ‘1895’ inscribed in silver wire with a rose emblem.
The match was played at Derby with England winning 9-0 and Goodall scoring two goals.
The red cap was awarded to Goodall for the game against Wales.
It has ‘1892-93’ inscribed in silver wire with a rose emblem.
The game was played at Stoke and England won 6-1. Goodall scored one goal.
The caps are expected to reach up to £1,200 each when they go up for auction in Newbury on March 14/15.
John Goodall made his England debut against Scotland at Hampden Park on March 17,1888.
That was the year before he starred in PNE’s historic and undefeated 1889 Football League and FA Cup double team, affectionately known ever since as The Invincibles.
On 15 October 1887 – the year before he made his England debut – Goodall scored the last goal in Preston North End’s 26-0 FA Cup victory against Hyde, which is still a club record.
London-born John Goodall was 22 when he joined Preston North End at the beginning of the 1885-1886 season.
