Ken Willingham's dark blue England v Wales international cap season 1938-39, inscribed ENGLAND V WALES, 1938-39; sold together with a Wills's Cigarettes card portraying Ken Willingham.

Sheffield Wednesday's Ken Willingham was awarded this cap for his appearance against Wales in the match played at Cardiff on 22nd October 1938. Wales won this match 4-2. A programme for this match is being offered elsewhere in the auction as lot 528. This style of England cap was introduced in the 1938-39 season and was only used for this season, because when international football resumed after the war a new style of cap appeared. It therefore represents a rare collector's piece.
