 Silent Auction: 1968 Cup Final Signed Prints
Topic Originator: Stanza  
Date:   Sun 13 Mar 22:03

A few years ago the celebrated football artist Paul Town painted this scene from the 1968 Cup Final, with Pat Gardner scoring for The Pars. Numbered prints were then produced, and some of them were individually signed by several members of the 1968 Dunfermline team.


Each print measures 42cm x 30cm and would make a great addition to your collection of Pars memorabilia, as well as helping your fellow-DAFC fans.

Dunfermline Athletic Disabled Supporters’ Club (DADSC) has 10 of these signed prints, and we are holding a silent auction of them to help provide access to the 1st Floor at EEP for people who use a wheelchair or have mobility problems.

The auction rules are as follows:

• The auction will close on Sunday 20 March at 5pm

• There is a reserve price of £15 on each individual print

• All bids must be submitted before the closing time to John Simpson at jasimpson123@yahoo.co.uk

• Bidders will be notified individually if their bid makes it into the top 10 or if it subsequently drops out

• Progress in the bidding will be reported on this thread (and on other social media), but the amount of any individual bid will NOT be published during or after the auction.

• Bidders should NOT disclose their own bids before the auction is concluded.

The prints are NOT individually signed by Paul Town, unfortunately, but his signature was on the original artwork the prints were made from (bottom LH corner)

The players DID sign each print individually, as shown on the image. The names I can make out are Roy Barry, Pat Gardner, Alex Edwards, Tommy Callaghan, Willie Callaghan, Bert Paton. There are two other signatories I can`t make out.

Hope that helps.

There`s been quite a bit of interest in this auction, as well as some tasty bids! It shows how much Pars fans value their heritage, and are also willing to support DADSC.

Everyone who bid has been notified whether or not they are on the Top Ten leaderboard - if you have sent in a bid and not heard back, please get in touch again.

Thanks to everyone so far - still time to get a bid in (minimum amount £15). Auction closes at 5pm on Sunday.

Bids close at 5pm today, so if you want one of these superb prints (as a reminder of when the Pars used to win trophies!) drop me an email no later than 5pm - minimum bid £15, higher if you want to be sure of getting a print.

Thanks to everyone who has submitted a bid, there has been a great response.

Thanks to everyone who bid for one of these great prints.

Everyone has now been notified of their success (or otherwise!) in the auction, and the prints will all be delivered to their new owners in the next week. The money raised is a considerable help towards DADSC`s aim of making all the reception areas in the Main Stand fully accessible by fans with mobility problems.

Thanks again
