Stepping away from the on-field drama for a moment, it’s nice to see Wolves helping a good cause by raising some money for the British Legion.
In case you haven’t heard, the Wolves Community Trust are auctioning off the commemorative shirts our players wore against Arsenal. If you’re interested in bidding on one of the shirts, you can do so by visiting the Wolves eBay store here:
I must say, I’m intrigued to see which shirts sells for the biggest amounts and in turn, which shirts fetch the least. I was contemplating making a bid, but most of the tops have now surged far beyond what I was willing to pay.
As it stands at the moment, SEB’s shirt commands the greatest premium at £331.38, closely followed by Michael Kightly’s at £320 and Kevin Doyle’s at £311. Karl Henry is also running along quite nicely at £295.
The shirt I was tempted to go for though was Jody Craddock’s. Not only did he have a great game (in my opinion), but he scored at both ends, which is a great story to share when showing it off to friends and family. I’d also wager it represents the best deal if somebody was looking for an investment. But I suppose that’s not really in the spirit of the auction. It sits at 300 smackers already, so it certainly won’t come cheap.
Obviously, the tops attracting the least attention are those of players that didn’t manage to get on the pitch. Marcus Hahnemann in particular is going cheap at just £180. But if you’re looking for an outfield bargain player, The Hoff is only at £200 and last season’s player of the year Kevin Foley is only commanding £205.
Anyway, which shirt would you go for and how much would you pay? Maybe you’re already bidding. If so, good luck and let us know whether you’re successful or not.
