A single sheet of paper detailing the teams from the 1889 FA Cup final between Wolves and Preston could fetch a world record when it is auctioned today.
The programme, one of only a handful surviving from the 19th century, is expected to fetch at least #10,000.
The current world record for a football programme is #14,400, paid in 2003 for a 1901 Spurs v Sheffield United FA Cup final programme.
The pre-sale estimate for that programme was #2,500 to #3,000 and Graham Budd, whose auction house is selling the programme at Sotheby's, said he would not be surprised if this programme pushed the record close.
"It is extremely rare, in fact it is the oldest programme I've ever seen," he said.
"You see very few programmes from before the turn of the century so I wouldn't be surprised if this fetched close to the world record."
The programme was also unusual as the game was played at the Kennington Oval and mentions Lord Kinnaird, the first great President of the Football Association, he said.
The 1889 cup final programme was particularly valuable as Preston, known as The Invincibles, became the first club to achieve the double, winning the Football League title and the FA Cup in the same season.
Also up for sale at the same auction is a programme from the 1913 FA Cup Final between Aston Villa and Sunderland.
Villa won the match 1-0, the first of their seven FA Cup victories, thanks to a late goal from Tommy Barber. It is expected to fetch #5,000. ..SUPL:
