The Preston North End legend's caps are expected to see bids of up to 1,200 each ($1,500). One white and the other red, they were awarded to Goodall for playing in games against Wales and Ireland.

Goodall scored the final goal in a 26-0 FA Cup victory that is still a club record to this day

Goodall starred in Preston North End's undefeated 1889 team, dubbed The Invincibles, who won that year's league title and FA Cup. He was also the final goal scorer in the 26-0 FA Cup defeat of Hyde in 1887.

Paul Fraser Collectibles has a fantastic selection of football memorabilia for sale, including items signed by all of the 1966 World Cup-winning squad.
