1886 FA Cup Final programme to auction at Graham Budd

A programme from the 1886 FA Cup Final is expected to sell for £20,000-25,000 ($30,858-38,573) at Graham Budd Auctions.

The sale will take place in London on October 27.

Played at the Oval, the 1886 FA Cup Final ended in a 0-0 draw. Rovers won the replay 2-0.

The lot, which lists the line-ups for West Bromwich Albion and Blackburn Rovers, is one of the earliest surviving football programmes and is also among the rarest.

The auction house comments: "This programme was issued for the 15th F.A. Cup Final in 1886 and the auctioneer has only ever seen one earlier example, the match card issued for the 1882 Cup Final between Old Etonians and Blackburn Rovers in 1882, also played at the Kennington Oval, and sold at Graham Budd Auctions 13th May 2013, lot 895, for a World Record auction price of £30,000."

A shirt worn by Manchester United "Busby Babe" Dennis Viollet in the 1958 FA Cup Final is expected to make £10,000-15,000.

Viollet took to the pitch against Bolton Wanderers just a couple of weeks after the Munich disaster, in which eight of his teammates died.

The emotionally charged match resulted in a somewhat subdued victory for Bolton.
