A bound volume of 22 Manchester United home game programmes for 1936-37 was sold for £6600 - and that for a season in which they were relegated from the old First Division!

Bottom right: stamped 'Complimentary', this ticket to the all-Midlands 1895 FA Cup Final, in which Aston Villa beat West Bromwich Albion, was seen in a June 16-17 Mullock Madeley sale in Ludlow.

Mounted with related newspaper cuttings, including
caricatures of the players, it sold at £2700. The original Challenge Cup was later displayed in Birmingham, but was stolen and never recovered.
