A single sheet of paper detailing the teams from the 1889 FA Cup final between Wolves and Preston fetched a world record price for a football programme at auction yesterday.
The programme, one of only a handful surviving from the 19th century, was sold for £21,850 - more than double its pre-sale estimate price tag of £7,000 to £10,000.
The previous world record for a football programme was £14,400, paid in 2003 for a 1901 Tottenham Hotspur v Sheffield United FA Cup final programme.
The 1889 programme - simply a slightly torn single sheet of paper with the team line ups - was bought by Giles Lyon, a bookseller, from Farnham, Surrey.
The 1889 Wolves v Preston FA Cup final was historic because Preston North End became the first club to clinch the FA Cup and Football League Championship double. The programme was also unusual because the game was played at the Kennington Oval and mentions Lord Kinnaird, an early FA president.
A programme from the 1913 FA Cup Final between Aston Villa and Sunderland was also sold for £6,670.
