Description

A George Best Game-Used #7 Manchester United FC Home Shirt & Signed Autobiography.  This shirt was an original piece of MUFC squad equipment, and was worn on the field of play by George Best.  The shirt dates to the early 1970’s, and would most likely have been worn sometime between 1971-1973.  Accompanying the shirt is a hand-signed copy of George’s autobiography “George Best.  Blessed”.  The book has been signed by Best in black marker to the interior title page.  Upon close inspection, you will come to find these items in the following condition:  The shirt shows it’s age and use.  There are a handful of small holes to the fabric, most notably to the lower hem.  There is one small hole to the back next to the squad number.  There is another small hole at the center of the neck trim.  Contact wear and piling of the fabric throughout.  Stitching appears to be solid throughout.  The squad number remains firmly stitched to the garment.  The squad number is no longer the bright white it would have once been, but it remains in excellent condition.  The Umbro label remains intact and is fully visible.  Overall, the colors remain bright.  There is no significant staining evident, only light markings throughout.  The garment possesses that scent of a garment from this era.  The book is in good condition with slight wear to the jacket and light staining to some pages. 

Please take a moment to review the authentication notes provided, as well as the provided photographs:

1.  Made in England.

2.  Umbro manufactured.  Umbro label stitched to interior neck.  Label reads:  “Made in England.  Umbro.  Fast Dyes.  The Choice of Champions”.

3.  Best’s squad #7 stitched to back in cloth.

4.  Spread collar with triangular insert. 

5.  Red body with ribbed cream trim to collar and sleeve ends.

6.  Garment is composed of a lightweight material.  Appears to be a stretchy blend of perhaps nylon and cotton.  Beginning around 1970, Umbro began experimenting with lighter and more breathable fabrics compared to their previous cotton offerings. 

7.  No size label is evident.  The garment appears to most closely resemble a modern day Medium.

8.  George Best’s Autobiography:  Hardcover.  Published in 2001.  Signed in black marker to the interior title page.  Book measures 9.5″ x 6.5″.  374 pages.
