I found a rare pair of David Beckham's old boots with an embarrassing mistake – and now I'm selling them for £2,000 | The Sun

A RARE pair of David Beckham's old football boots are selling for £2,000 – but they have an embarrassing mistake.

The England legend wore the black, white and red Adidas Predators just before the France 98 World Cup.

They have his nickname embroidered on the fold down tongue, but it appears as 'Beck's' not 'Becks'.

Beckham and wife Victoria are widely referred to as Posh and Becks – with no apostrophe.

The boots also have his '7' shirt number on the heels.

Beckham, 48, wore them in the battling 0-0 draw with Italy on October 11, 1997.

The point clinched qualification for the World Cup.

The ex-Manchester United and Real Madrid ace was famously sent off in the tournament.

He kicked out at Diego Simone in the Last 16 clash which the Three Lions lost on penalties.

They are up for auction with Hansons Auctioneers and are estimated to sell for between £2,000 and £3,000.
