PFA Footballer of the Year 1989 & 1991
Leslie Mark Hughes, OBE (born 1 November 1963) is a Welsh football manager and former player, who was most recently manager of Premier League club Southampton.
During his playing career he was most noted for two spells at Manchester United, but he also played for Barcelona and Bayern Munich, as well as the English clubs Chelsea, Southampton, Everton and finally Blackburn Rovers. He also made 72 appearances for Wales scoring 16 goals. He retired from playing in 2002. He won a host of winners' medals during his playing career, including two Premier League titles, four FA Cups, three League Cups and two European Cup Winners' Cups. He also collected an FA Cup runners-up medal and a League Cup runners-up medal. Hughes was the first player to win the PFA Players' Player of the Year award twice, in 1989 and 1991.
The Mark Hughes shirt is made in halved colours of his club and country, wire woven gold and silver official Manchester United badge matched with the official badge of England, the shirt has the Player signature digitised and embroidered on the shirt between the badges, the shirt is mounted on gold board within an archival quality sealed frame above a printed player profile personally signed by the Footballer of the Year, two photographs one portraying him in match action, the other a portrait of him receiving the PFA trophy. The frame measures 840mm wide x 1000mm high
To complete the framed shirt the logos of the PFA Centenary year and 4 Club & Country Ltd are included, each shirt has a separate certificate of authenticity signed by Mr Gordon Taylor, CEO of the Professional Footballers' Association and the manufacturers, 4 Club & Country Limited. This is the first time that the following has been brought together as part of one unique collection: official Club badge, official Country badge, player profile with players own signature, official PFA badge and authentication from Gordon Taylor, CEO of the PFA.
Only four of these PFA Centenary Collection shirts have been made, or will ever be made, and this is a unique opportunity to own the last one. A piece of British sporting history which will appreciate in value. In 2007, Sotheby's of London estimated the value at auction to be £1,750 - £2,250 .
