Pop star Mick Hucknall looks like taking a £25,000 hit on a pair of signed David Beckham football boots that he’s planning to sell.
The Simply Red front man bought the boots for £29,000 at a pre 2002 World Cup charity party hosted by Beckham and his wife Victoria.
The red and white Adidas Predator boots bear a personal message from Beck’s which reads: ‘To Mick, Best Wishes, David Beckham 7’.
Manchester United fan Hucknall is a well known buyer of football memorabilia but has decided to scale down his collection.
The boots are expected to fetch between £3,000 and £5,000 at a sale later today in Scotland and auctioneer David Convery said:
It’s a good time to buy Beckham memorabilia as it’s not as valuable as it once was.
But when he breaks Bobby Moore’s appearance record for England, values will rise.
