The sale follows the Mitchell Cole benefit match held at Stevenage in May. Among the players taking part were Andy Carroll, Joe Cole, Matt Jarvis and James Collins. Joe provided a signed shirt that he played in for his second Premiership debut for West Ham â€“ a 2-2 FA Cup draw with Manchester United at Upton Park on Saturday, January 5th. The other players all signed the shirts they played in for the benefit match. These are in the sale, complete with mud and sweat!
Joeâ€™s shirt from the benefit match went in an earlier ebay auction, raising Â£161 of the Â£450 profits for the CMA.
The Manchester United home shirt is from 2012/13, the final season of Sir Alex Fergusonâ€™s tenure at the club. It comes in a smart presentation box and includes a team photo and a certificate of authenticity
The auctions are now live on the Cardiomyopathy Associationâ€™s Ebay profile and you have less than ten days to secure yourself a bit of history â€“ start your bidding here.
Mitchell, who died last year aged 27, had hypertrophic cardiomyopathy. After having to retire from football in 2011 because of the disease he became an ambassador for the CMA, helping the charity raise awareness of the condition and the work of the charity.
