A menu from a banquet held to celebrate Wolverhampton Wanderers reaching the 1939 FA Cup Final is set to go under the hammer.
The menu is expected to sell for up to £300 when it is auctioned at Ludlow Racecourse, Shropshire, during the two day event on April 2 and 3.
Sports enthusiasts will be treated to everything from football programmes, tennis rackets, autographs, shirts and cricket bats, to trophies, golf clubs, rugby shirts and blazers.
One of the highlights of the sale will be a rare programme from the 1950 World Cup match between Brazil and Uruguay which is expected to summon up to £700. The programme is part of a collection belonging to Jim Finney , a legendary football referee from the 1950s and 1960s.
Football is not the only sport to feature in the bidding war, with rugby, golf and Formula 1 memorabilia also up for sale. A rare South African rugby blazer from 1891 is expected to make an appearance as well as a collection of items signed during the Spanish Grand Prix in 2005 by Jensen Button, Rubens Barrichello and Mika Hakkinen .
Auctioneer John Mullock said: "There is no let up in worldwide interest in sporting memorabilia.
"We have noticed that in these uncertain financial times, collectors are also turning to this type of material for investment, especially considering that last year we achieved a world record price for a sporting item which went for £155,000."
Car buyers have the chance to follow in the footsteps of Michael J. Fox and Christopher Lloyd when a DeLorean DMC-12 , similar to the one seen in the 1980s Hollywood film series Back to the Future, is auctioned off in Malvern.
The car is just one of 8,531 cars built between 1981 and 1983 which will be sold off at the Three Counties Showground on April 3.
With only 13,000 miles on the clock, the car is expected to fetch between £15,000 and £18,000 when it is sold off by the Classic Auction Company. The sale will also feature a 1978 Argyll GT Turbo , one of only five or six thought to have been made during production in Scotland in the 1970s.
The Argyll hand-built sports car is expected to sell for between £12,000 and £16,000.
