From a pair of 2007 FA Cup Final boots worn and signed by Wayne Rooney, white Everlast boxing shorts signed by Cassius Clay (now the legendary Mohammad Ali), football shirts framed and signed by the likes of Pele, Maradonna and George Best to mens and ladies Rolex waches and other designer jewellery all to be sold by Wilsons Auctions with 'No Reserve'.

These goods and many more were seized by West Midlands Police, under the Proceeds of Crime Act, on behalf of HM Revenue and Customs following an investigation into a 26 million pound tax scam.  The investigation, code named Operation Digit, ended with the 17 year sentencing of Thomas Scragg and his associates.

The assets will be sold at auction on Thursday 12th December 2013.
