Most Expensive Football Shirts sold on Ebay (this past few months, January 2024)

This list might make you want to clear out your Grandad's loft and check if he has any old Football shirts! because Football shirts, especially Match worn shirts are going for a pretty penny these days! Every month I shall be posting a blog on how much shirts have sold for on eBay so we can see overtime how much prices have increased. Note that some shirts have had best offer accepted so there is no real way to tell what they actually sold for. 
The eBay links will expire over time so I have added screenshots and/or details of how much the shirts sold for and when! This is more of a guide than anything else. 

There are a few factors which make a shirt worth money and the main ones are who wore the shirt! And what the team achieved in the season the shirt was worn!

this next shirt isn’t match worn & it doesn’t have a name or number on the back but with it being a goalkeeper shirt from the 90s it’s slightly rarer than the home and shirts from that season as they would have sold less units……
