Memorabilia from England’s triumphant 1966 World Cup is up for sale in Ashtead this Saturday (February 3).

A collection of envelopes signed by Bobby Moore, Nobby Stiles, Martin Peters, Geoff Hurst and other players from the winning England squad such as Sir Bobby Charlton and Jimmy Greaves (along with manager Sir Alf Ramsey) are going under the hammer.

The sale, at St George’s Christian Centre, is organised by local dealers Epsom Stamp Auctions.

Co-owner Paul Warren said: “It is really a remarkable assembly which would be very difficult to put together today.”

Barry Mudie, who is also a co-owner, said: “As you can imagine, we were a bit taken aback when the vendor showed them to us.

“In our last auction we had some other World Cup items which sold well, but nothing like this album. This really is something special.”

Epsom Stamp Auctions has bucked the trend of independent businesses shrinking from town centres, having been in business for more than 30 years.

Paul Warren is a retired engineer and Barry Mudie was a police officer with the Met.

The World Cup collection has a sale estimate of £750.

Viewing is this week at the Epsom Stamp Shop, 23 Waterloo Road, Epsom or at the auction venue on the day, St George’s Christian Centre, Barnett Wood Lane, Ashtead.
