Welsh Football stalwart Tegwyn Evans’ UEFA pen set to sell at auction

Posted on

A very rare UEFA pen presentation set that belonged to the late former president of the Football Association of Wales (FAW), Tegwyn Evans, will go under the hammer alongside a host of other football memorabilia at a Wolverhampton auction room on Friday, 15th August.

The Sterling silver and 18ct gold fountain and ball point pen set, presented in a fitted hardwood case which bears an inscription marking UEFA’s 50th Anniversary, carry a guide price of £200-400. However, due to their rarity, they could well achieve more as Cuttlestones’ saleroom manager, Tom Waldron, explains:

“This is a pretty unique lot in a number of ways. First of all, these are limited edition items that were gifted to various officials and dignitaries at specialist UEFA events and, as far as we can tell, none have come up for sale on the open market before. Secondly, this particular set was purchased by the vendor from the estate of the late Tegwyn Evans, who served as an FAW council member since 1975 and was president from 2003 to 2006. Tegwyn was a true ambassador for Welsh football so fans of the game in Wales are likely to have a keen eye on this piece as well as collectors of International football memorabilia.”

Another addition to the sale catalogue likely to pique the interest of Welsh football fans is a 14CT gold and blue enamel medal of The Football Association of Wales, with an engraving to the “Amateur Cup Winners 1935-36 Llay Welfare FC.” Again, the rarity of this lot is reflected by its guide of £250-350.

The lots will come under the hammer on Friday, 15th August at Wolverhampton Auction Rooms as part of the Specialist Collectors’ Sale. The full catalogue will be available online from Friday, 8th August and with telephone, commission and live online bidding options available for remote bidders, the sale is expected to attract International interest.
