Wark gained 29 Scotland caps including in the 1982 FIFA World Cup where he made three appearances and scored twice. During his playing career Wark also appeared in the film Escape to Victory!
When Ipswich won 1980–81 UEFA Cup, Wark set a UEFA competition record by scoring 14 goals and ended the 1980–81 season with 36 goals. He won European Young Player of the Year, and gained the acclaim of his fellow professionals in England to earn the PFA Player of the Year award.
Afghan Heroes have been donated this official Professional Footballers Association framed and signed shirt, which has been valued and is estimated to be worth up to £10,000. This shirt was made as part of a collection spanning from the inaugural PFA awards in 1974 to 1997 when the PFA celebrated their centenary.
Only four sets of the shirts have been made, or will ever be made:
• The PFA own the first set • The second set was sold at an auction held at the PFA Centenary banquet in Manchester, with the proceeds contributing towards the PFA's charitable causes • Shirts from the third set were presented by the PFA to the respective Footballer of the Year. • The fourth and remaining set is now being offered for public raffle with proceeds going to charities.
The shirt is made in halved colours of the player's club and country, wire woven gold and silver official Club badges matched with the official badge of their Country. It has the winning player’s signature digitised and embroidered on the shirt between the badges, mounted on gold board within an archival quality sealed frame above a printed player profile personally signed by the Footballer of the Year. Two photographs; one portraying the player in match action, the other a portrait of the footballer receiving the PFA trophy. To complete the framed shirts the logos of the PFA Centenary year and the manufacturers 4 Club & Country Ltd are included. The shirt has a separate certificate of authenticity signed by Gordon Taylor, CEO of the PFA.
