Jackie Milburn Remembered

8 years ago
Share

When you are making a check list for the ideal player to personify your club, I’d like to see the one who beats Jackie Milburn.

In the modern era many would put a case forward for Alan Shearer and the best compliment I can give him is that he shares many of the characteristics that made J.E.T. Milburn so special.

Great bloke

Of course the difference between the two United greats is that Jackie added silverware, winning the FA Cup three times for Newcastle and this is when the Cup meant so much more to fans than the League title. It was the competition that ended in that real glamour match at Wembley and of course was the only match shown live on TV each season.

Maybe it is no greater measure of how times change when pretty much all clubs these days would bite your hand off for fourth in the league instead of winning the FA Cup.

The imagery of the fifties is something that many of us love, when the great players were really men of the people and not millionaires before they’d played a handful of matches.

Anyway, we’ve pulled together some special items of Jackie Milburn memorabilia that we are sure will be of interest and having a look costs nothing, then if you fancy making a bid it is up to you.

There are items including Jackie Milburn’s signature, testimonial programme, rare autobiographies, nostalgic magazines of the time featuring Jackie and loads more; we have them featuring in the latest Mag Auctions of classic Newcastle United memorabilia.

With a deep love of United’s history and the classic memorabilia and programmes that are a big part of that, we have always intended to bring you our very own auctions.Delving into Newcastle’s extraordinary history, each week we will be putting a number of items up for auction via eBbay, with prices starting from as a little as 99p.

Not everybody will want to bid on the items but we are sure that the range of items will provoke interest and debate, plus the memories flooding back.

It costs nothing to look and with the auctions lasting for a week you have plenty of time to keep an eye and bid at any time over the 7 days, potentially picking up a real bargain.

Every week a selection including programmes, magazines, tickets, trading cards and clothing CLICK HERE to visit.
