Shirt worn by Sergio Agüero when he secured the title for Manchester City in 2012 to be offered at auction

LONDON.- The shirt worn by Argentinian player and the Premier League's highest-scoring overseas player Sergio Agüero, to secure the title for Manchester City in 2012 will be included in Graham Budd Auctions’ sale on Tuesday, May 24, 2022. The historic blue Manchester City No.16 jersey was worn by Sergio Agüero when scoring the winning goal v Queen's Park Rangers in the 4th minute of extra-time at the Etihad Stadium, 13th May 2012, to secure the Premiership title for Manchester City. It is estimated to fetch £20,000-30,000.

The shirt even bears dry champagne spray marks from the dressing celebrations on the front and reverse! It will be offered with two signed letters of provenance - one from the seller and one from a former employee at Manchester City Football Club, that will be made available to the winning bidder. In his letter the seller also confirms that he is not profiting from the sale of this jersey. The auction proceeds are to be divided between an individual in need of urgent and ongoing medical assistance, and two charities that this individual has supported and who have supported him during his prolonged illness: Testicular Cancer UK ("checkemlads") and the Stroke Association. For this lot Graham Budd Auctions has waived its seller's commission so that 100% of the auction proceeds will go to these worthy causes.

Manchester City defeated Queen's Park Rangers 3-2, with Sergio Agüero scoring the winning goal in the match which also sealed the Premiership title for Manchester City and has been described as the greatest moment in Premier League history and particularly memorable for commentator Martin Tyler's reaction to the goal being scored at 93:20 "Agueroooooo."

As Adam Gascgoine, CEO of Graham Budd Auctions, commented: “We are delighted to be offering this iconic shirt in our Premier League auction – it is one of the most important pieces in the history of the Premier League as Agüero was wearing it when he scored the title clinching goal in 2012. Sergio Agüero is the fourth-highest scoring player in Premier League history, with 184 goals in 275 games; the league's highest scoring overseas player with nine more goals than Thierry Henry and Manchester City’s all-time top goal scorer. He is a true legend, so it’s no surprise that the club are celebrating the 10th anniversary of the goal by erecting a statue to him outside Etihad Stadium last week.”

He goes on to say: “In March of this year FourFourTwo Magazine published a list of the top 100 Premier League players and we very pleased that we have items relating to at least 83 of the top players in the sale.”

Celebrating 30 years of the Premier League, the live/ online sale will take place via Among more than 350 items relating to 30 years of the Premier League will be Wayne Rooney's boots, worn when he scored his first Premier League goal in October 2002, at the age of 16, in a match between Everton and Arsenal. Rooney is the second highest goal scorer in the Premier League and the boots are estimated at £5,000-10,000. The uncle of the present vendor comes from a family that are long-time friends of Wayne Rooney's family and in particular a friendship with Wayne's uncle Richie, the main trainer at the boxing gym at Croxteth Sports Centre. The vendor's uncle acquired the boots through Wayne's brother Graham and they were then later signed by arrangement through Wayne's father Thomas.

Eric Cantona was inducted into the Premier League Hall of Fame in 2021 and two items from his momentous career will be offered. A grey “invisible” shirt from 1996 is estimated at £10,000-12,000. Manchester United never won a game in the grey kit, they lost 4 and drew one, and in one game, against Southampton, Sir Alex Ferguson ordered the team to change to their third choice jerseys as the players were not recognising each other on the pitch when they wore the “invisible” jerseys; while a pair of his boots, presented personally by Eric Cantona to Lester Ellison the Old Trafford dressing room attendant is estimated at £5,000 to 10,000.

Patrick Vieira’s Arsenal shirt relating to the game on February 1, 2005 in which he had a fracas in the tunnel with Roy Keane, who is known to have said "I'll see you out there". Vieira, who was named in the Premier League PFA Team of the Year for six consecutive years from 1999 to 2004, scored the opening goal but Manchester United ultimately won 4-2. The shirt also has the 'Stand Up, Speak Up' badge which was only worn in one game (est: £4,000- 6,000).

A collection of memorabilia relating West Bromwich Albion’s Great Escape during the 2004/2005 season. West Bromwich Albion is only club to be in last place in the Premier League on Christmas Day and not be relegated. They went on to register 13 points in their 10 games post-Christmas.
