  Bert Trautmann Signed 1956 FA Cup Final Photograph     £ 29.95

For sale is a fantastic 12" x 8" retro black and white press quality photograph of former City 'keeper Bert Trautmann being helped from the field by team mates at the end of the clubs 1956 FA Cup Final 3-1 victory over Birmingham City at Wembley. Bert had played on heroically despite sustaining a serious neck injury following a collision with Birminghams Peter Murphy.

Bert has clearly autographed this superb photograph in permanent blue Sharpie. His own remarkable story is truely fascinating stuff, serving as a Paratrooper with the German Army during WW2 and winning an Iron Cross before being captured by the British. Following his release at the end of the war, Bert settled in Lancashire and worked his way up through local football. When signed by City in October 1949 there was initial uproar including a protest attended by some 20,000 people! Eventually his performances between the sticks won the supporters over and the rest is history.
