Match Worn Shirts

Rick Holden had an illustrious playing career with Burnley, Halifax Town, Watford, Oldham Athletic, Manchester City and Blackpool and competed at the highest level of the Football League, including the old First Division and the Premier League. He is now planning for his retirement and is therefore selling his personal collection of match worn shirts - Rick would like to add that he's not destitute but he would like the shirts to go to good homes where they can be displayed and enjoyed. All shirts come with a certificate authenticated by Rick Holden and can also be signed if the buyer so wishes. All reserve prices must be met to complete the sale and £10 will be added for UK postage - worldwide postage at cost.

White Bovis 'Blood' Shirt
Oldham Athletic This shirt is authentic but is not in the normal 'match worn' shirts category. It is a blood shirt from the Latics' ‘Lunatic Cup Season’ of 1989/90. Blood shirts are spares which may or may not have been used. They are literally to put on if there is a blood spill. Often they didn’t have a number on (like this one) as no-one knew who was going to get injured! The referee would just make a note of the number of the shirt which was replaced and knew that the blank represented that player (eg. number 6). This is the last of Rick's blood shirts, hence the last opportunity to own a very unusual piece of Oldham Athletic memorabilia.
