A huge collection of sporting and music memorabilia is set to go under the hammer at a Scarborough saleroom on Saturday.

The items will be up for grabs at Dugglebys in Vine Street at 11am, with viewing on Friday from 10am to 7pm and on Saturday morning from 9am.

There are 106 lots from the same seller, who is from the Hornsea area.

Items include a picture of the 1966 World Cup football team signed by keeper Gordon Banks, a Queen gold disc set and a set of Elvis Presley stamps.

There are also Olympic first day covers signed by stars including Sir Steve Redgrave, Matthew Pinsent and cyclist Chris Boardman.

The auction will also feature a shirt signed by footballing legend Pele.

Kate Grimwood, of Duggleby’s auctioneers, said: “It’s a huge collection and it is in immaculate condition, so it must have been stored very well.

“We’ve had lots of interest, with people ringing up to find out more.”

She added that this is a lifetime’s collection from one seller and that all items are of a very high standard.

These particular lots are being shown in a separate area to other items during viewing times as there are so many of them.

Mrs Grimwood added: “It’s a great collection and we’re expecting a good crowd on Saturday.”

As well as numerous signed books, prints, football shirts and sporting memorabilia, the same seller also has a number of military items in the sale.

These include items relating to the RAF and both the George Cross and the Victoria Cross.

The whole auction will feature more than 600 lots, with a large silver section also creating interest.

The sale will start at 11am and people are welcome to view items from 9am.
