RARE FOOTBALL MEDAL SOLD

The Independent Scottish Football network published an article on its
web site Wednesday about the recent sale of a 1900 medal.

"A piece of Derby County history was sold today at the Bamfords fine
art auction in Ashbourne. The piece in question being a 9ct gold medal
awarded to Steve Bloomer.

The medal was awarded for the FA League versus the Irish League
representational match in 1900, a very rare item of memorabilia
specifically linked to Derby County’s greatest ever player.

The item was lot 901 and came at the end of a rain soaked but enjoyable
days bidding and the winning bidder was not identified but not thought
to have links with Derby County Football Club."

"The winning bid was a whopping £1,700. This is only the hammer price
and a 15% commission fee plus VAT would have to be added to the final
price."
