Vintage 1966: champagne to be auctioned in memory of Moore
It could be the perfect way to celebrate England's World Cup victory in Germany this summer.
A rare bottle of 1966 champagne direct from the cellars of the Maison Dom Perignon, signed by all 10 surviving members of that summer's World Cup-winning England team, is to be auctioned next month.
It is estimated to make between £5,000 and £8,000 - though the sky could be the limit for a football aficionado. Even the lower limit would be a champagne record.
The proceeds will go towards the charitable foundation set up by Stephanie Moore in memory of her husband, Bobby, the only member of the 1966 squad who is no longer alive.
Bobby Moore died of bowel cancer aged 51 in 1993, since when Mrs Moore has raised millions of pounds for research into the disease, which can be treated successfully in 80 per cent of cases if detected early enough yet remains Britain's second biggest cancer killer.
Unveiling the bottle at Sotheby's auctioneers in London yesterday, Mrs Moore said she hoped the sale would go some way towards her target of raising £3m for the Bobby Moore Fund for Cancer Research UK this year - twice her normal annual average.
Serena Sutcliffe, head of Sotheby's wine department, said it was almost impossible to estimate the sale price of the bottle, donated by Dom Perignon. It will be sold at Sotheby's fine and rare wines auction on 10 May.
