Outside the Box: Sir Stan's boots up for sale – but are they the sole pair?

How many pairs of boots did Stanley Matthews wear while giving the most famous performance of his career, in Blackpool's 4-3 win over Bolton in the 1953 FA Cup final? The question arises now that Bonhams are preparing to auction what they believe to be the actual footwear, despite the National Football Museum in Preston having a pair for which they make the same claim. The NFM say they were donated by someone in the Stoke area 18 months ago. But a Bonhams football specialist told Outside The Box it was most unlikely that a player in those days would have changed boots and that they are convinced they have the authentic pair, obtained from Matthews' great friend Wilf Coomer, who was given them in the dressing-room after the game. Any doubts about the provenance would reduce the price from the current estimate of £6,000 to £8,000. Also in the auction, in Chester on 24 February, is the second medal presented to Jose Mourinho for winning the Premier League, in 2005-06. Like the first, which was sold to a Chelsea fan for £21,600, the flamboyant manager threw it into the crowd.
