Signed handsomely on a June 1966 Anglo-American Sporting Club dinner evening menu
Autographs obtained just 40 days before England won the World Cup
The 1966 FIFA World Cup is the only World Cup football tournament to have been won by England, who beat West Germany 4-2 in the final on July 30, 1966.
The 1966 World Cup final is remembered by football fans for a number of reasons besides being England's only World Cup victory. The game was the first (and only) time that a player had scored three goals in a World Cup final, with Geoff Hurst scoring three of England's four goals.
The game is also remembered for the controversy that surrounded England's third goal. Did Geoff Hurst's shot cross the line?

1973 US Team Ryder Cup caddy bib signed by 21 of the world’s top golfers
Includes autographs from Arnold Palmer, Jack Nicklaus and Lee Trevino
The 1973 Ryder Championship took place at Murfield in Scotland. The US was the winning team, with a score of 19 to the British side’s 13.
One of the finest pieces of golfing memorabilia we’ve ever handled. This stunning bib displays a large US flag along with name Rodrigues and “Ryder Cup 1973”. Chi Chi Rodrigues' caddy wore it in the tournament.
The signatures are an extraordinary who’s who of golfing talent. On the front is the US team: JACK NICKLAUS, ARNOLD PALMER, LEE TREVINO, JUAN “CHI CHI” RODRIGUES, BILLY CASPER, JC SNEAD, TOM WEISKOPF, GAY BREWER, TOMMY AARON, JACK BURKE, DAVE HILL.
The reverse features a collection of British stars: TONY JACKLIN, PETER OOSTERHUIS, BRIAN BARNES, NEIL COLES, BERNARD GALLAGHER, MAURICE BEMBRIDGE, PETER BUTLER, CLIVE CLARK, CHRISTY O’CONNOR, JOHN GARNER.
The provenance is excellent. The previous owner was a guest of Lee Trevino at a meal during the tournament. He received the bib as a gift from Chi Chi Rodrigues’ caddy. Trevino then passed it around the table for each golfer to sign.
