    Early 1990's David Beckham Signed Youth Football (Soccer) Identification Card, Featured in The Daily Mirror. This simple laminated identification card was brought to Heritage by a young woman who found herself sitting next to the future international soccer superstar on a flight from London to Dallas, Texas, where young Becks was to participate in the noted youth soccer tournament The Dallas Cup. In a further Dickensian twist, it just so happened that Beckham was to be staying as a guest in the home of this young woman's close friend, and so the pair became close friends over the two weeks that David was stateside. When the sad day of parting came, Beckham offered the young lady his identification card as a memento, and we're pleased to present it to our bidding audience today. A small (1x1.25") snapshot of the most photographed athlete in the world is joined by a youthful and perfectly rendered autograph on the 2.25x3.25" card. Beckham's "Essex County Schools F.A." pinback button is clipped to the upper left corner. Also included in the lot is a lapel pin once belonging to Becks, bearing the seal and name of the "English Schools Football Association." Finally, we have four personal snapshots taken by the young lady's family, each picturing the teenaged soccer star. All pieces remain in fine condition.

    In December 2007, leading UK tabloid The Daily Mirror tracked down Beckham's love interest and utilized the contents of the lot in a two-page spread featuring an interview with her. A copy of that publication is included. Full LOA from PSA/DNA. Full LOA from James Spence Authentication.
