Going through all my old Christie Glasgow Catalogues today (thanks Camillo) and after seeing so many Celtic medals that have come up for auction, i think they are worthy of their own thread plus they are my main interest in collecting Celtic FC memorabilia, my aim is to record all Celtic medals that have ever appeared in auction and others i have images of, the one below shows Number 42 the 1908 Four Leaf Clover Medal.

The name John Thomson will, forever, be etched into the annuals of Celtic F.C. His untimley death at the tender age of 22 in a challenge with the Rangers forward Sam English on 5 September 1931 is one of the saddest moments in Celtic's long and proud history. Known as 'The Cat', Johnny joined Celtic from Wellesley Juniors on November 1st 1926, and he made his debut for the club in a league match against Dundee in February the following year. A fearless and commanding figure around his penalty box, Johnny Thomson went on to make over 180 first team appearances for the club and the medal above is possiobly the first of only a handful of winners medals he managed to achieve with Celtic.


Sold on the 27th September 2001 Christies London, South Kensington for £2,585

Known as 'Jean', John McFarlane made in excess of 300 appearances for Celtic, scoring 13 goals over a 10 year period with the club from 1919 to 1929. He was an extremely gifted passer of the ball who, after signing for the club from Wellesley Juniors (after trials for Cowdenbeath and Raith Rovers) originally an inside-right, he settled into the left-half role and was instrumental in making Celtic the attractive, if not entirely successful side they were. He joined Middlesbrough in June 1929, before joining Dunfermline Athletic in 1934, retiring the following year, In the final played at Hampden Park, Glasgow, Celtic defeated Rangers 2-0.
