Peter Shilton PFA Player of the Year Shirt
PFA signed shirts
Peter Shilton OBE was capped by England on 125 occasions and is their most capped player of all time.
Signed by Brian Clough for Nottingham Forest a month into the 1978/79 season, Forest went on to win the League title. Peter’s dramatic save in the 0-0 draw against Coventry City, a result that clinched the title, is considered to be the greatest save of his career, and contributed to his fellow professionals awarding him the PFA Player of the Year award.
During his time at Forest he won two European Cups, a UEFA Super Cup, the First Division championship, the Football League Cup and many other honours. His 30-year career included eleven different clubs, three World Cups, two European Cup finals and more than 1,000 competitive matches. He has the rare distinction of having played over 100 league games for five different clubs. Shilton played in 17 World Cup finals matches and shares the record 10 clean sheets in World Cup finals.
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.
