Blackburn programme sells for world record price

A programme from the 1882 FA Cup final has sold at auction for a new world record of £35,250, reports BBC News.

The document, marking the tie between Blackburn Rovers and Old Etonians, was found in a box of papers bought as a job lot at a previous auction.

The previous record auction price for a programme was one from the 1909 FA Cup final, which sold for £23,500 in November.

The programme was bought by the Old Etonians Football Club.
