The actual original match ticket from the 1955 FA Cup Final from the original Wembley Stadium, London.  Newcastle United beat Manchester City 3-1 in front of 100,000 spectators.  This ticket is a beautiful piece of English Football history.

The match was on 7th May 1955.

The 1955 FA Cup Final was contested by Newcastle United and Manchester City at Wembley. Newcastle won 3–1, with goals from Jackie Milburn in the first minute (after 45 seconds, a record in a final at Wembley, a record he held until 1997), Bobby Mitchell and George Hannah.  Bobby Johnstone scored City's goal. The game was virtually decided when Man City fullback Meadows was turned inside out by the elusive and mercurial Bobby Mitchell and after 22 minutes was stretchered off with a bad leg injury. The process of substitutions were not allowed in English football until 1967. Newcastle were already leading and this just added to City's woes, as their much-vaunted "Revie Plan" (based on a deep-lying centre-forward in Don Revie, later to be England manager) failed to fire. Man City had flashy tracksuits (virtually unheard-of at the time), so the game was "the Gaudies v the Geordies."
