Aguero’s winner against QPR ten years ago, famously scored in the fourth minute of stoppage time, gave City their first Premier League title.
Two days before the sale of Maradona’s renowned jersey, his shirt was included in Graham Budd Auctions’ catalogue with a £30,000 price tag.
Now, Aguero’s shirt is expected to skyrocket in value, maybe reaching £1 million on the May 24 auction date.
Experts in memorabilia expect that the value of classic shirts will skyrocket.
The six-time Premier League winner has been forced to retire due to medical advice, but as the League celebrates its 30th anniversary, one of its most significant goals is resurfacing in people’s minds.
Martin Tyler, a Sky pundit, is probably as well-known for his response when Aguero scored in the fourth minute of added time versus QPR.
The late strike goal, touted as the greatest moment in Premier League history, helped City win 3-2.
The Umbro shirt is short-sleeved and has the Barclays Premier League sleeve badges, club emblem, and sponsor logo.
Kun Aguero is on the reverse. The dried Champagne spray traces from the dressing room festivities are still visible on both the back and front of the garment.
Adam Gascgoine, CEO of Graham Budd Auctions who are holding the sale on May 24, said: “We are delighted to be offering this iconic shirt in our Premier League auction – it is one of the most important pieces in the history of the Premier League.
“In March of this year FourFourTwo Magazine published a list of the top 100 Premier League players and we very pleased that we have items relating to at least 83 of the top players in the sale.”
The auction earnings will be split between a patient in need of immediate and continuous medical care. Some of the revenues will go to two charities that helped him during his long illness: Testicular Cancer UK and the Stroke Association.
Graham Budd Auctions has waived its seller’s commission for this lot, ensuring that 100% of the auction proceeds go to these good organisations.
The live online auction will take place at grahambuddauctions.co.uk to commemorate the Premier League’s 30th anniversary.
