1889 SCOTTISH CUP MEDAL SOLD

The fever for historic sports medals continues. The Evening
Times reports that "A rare medal from Celtic's first Scottish
Cup defeat has sold at auction for more than 800.

The gold medal sparked a bidding war in Glasgow as football
collectors clamoured to get their hands on the controversial
gong.

Bought by a Scottish private collector for 850, it was presented
to player William Love of Third Lanark after his team swept to
victory with a 2-1 win in a replay in 1889."
