Manchester United v Bolton Wanderers 1963-4.

One on Ebay at £1.99 a couple around £3 never looked for any others because it was this that caught my eye

https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/RARE-George-Best-ROOKIE-Programme-Manchester-Utd-1963-64-Season-Excellent-C/233849504953

I advised seller exactly what i have written above from £1.99 and he replied saying i cannot receive emails??, but it was all sent via Ebay and he must have seen the first message to reply in the first place.

Look at some of the other stuff Get My Coat deranged for sure.

Also that was not Best's signature either and the club made a rick, i could have said George was pissed when he wrote that but he did not start drinking for another 2 years!, his signature in 1963 was almost very girlish, judge for yourself when he signed this 3 months later in the Barnsley programme in the Cup https://flic.kr/p/qxTqRQ

I've often wondered why these ridiculously overpriced items actually appear. It's highly unlikely that anyone will buy them so is there something I'm missing? Maybe a tax dodge or even money laundering?! Shocked

Probably just gross stupidity! Laughing

Nice lot of Man Utd press photos here at an interesting price - how did he arrive at that? Works out at £46.23 each inc post - a tad overpriced maybe but individually one or two might fetch £50 odd or more.

NO WAY they were sold! Listings ended £345k for a Ronaldo Card and £91k for something else. Laughing

Also that was not Best's signature either and the club made a rick, i could have said George was pissed when he wrote that but he did not start drinking for another 2 years!, his signature in 1963 was almost very girlish, judge for yourself when he signed this 3 months later in the Barnsley programme in the Cup https://flic.kr/p/qxTqRQ


Seller has sent offer of £3500.00 "Because you showed interest in this item, the seller sent you this private offer."

I think this one is just a typo - the sellers other items are listed a lot lower, and most cases close to being realistic.

There are so many examples of OTT offers they can not all be typo's. These guys are the equivalent to ticket touts.

I looked at these wildly excessive demands and look to see if the postage is included. Any one asking £20,000 (sorry typo should be £200,000) and adding postage, is a clown.

It seems as if nowadays, if you include the word "rookie" it increases the value of any sporting memorabilia by at least 10 fold.

This is particularly prevalent with Panini stickers at the moment.
