A few months back we traveled to Prague in a quest for quality consignments from the Czech Republic. Sitting in our hotel lobby, I was patiently and anxiously looking forward to our meeting with Frantisek Tikal. When he arrived it was all I could do to contain myself in the hope that what he brought was exactly what I hoped it would be.
Frantisek sat down and told me the story of his grandfather with passion, not to mention the help of a translator! He explained to me in detail how his family managed to keep this prized jersey in his possession. I couldn’t wait to see it but that would have to wait a bit more as it remained in a plastic bag until Frantisek had told his tale. When the time finally came, it was more than worth the wait. As soon as I laid eyes on this vintage beauty I knew it would be an amazing feature in our spring auction.
The time was now appropriate for Frantisek and his family to offer this beautiful international game-worn jersey
to the collecting world. And Classic Auctions was the auction house he trusted to promote it.
