Last week Icons completed its fourth private signing session with Manchester United legend Eric Cantona.
Icons travelled to Paris to meet with the mercurial Frenchman, where he signed a new range of shirts and photos for us.
Le King put his name to a replica 1996 FA Cup final shirt commemorating the May day when his solitary strike sent arch rivals Liverpool to 1-0 defeat at Wembley.
He also signed two new photographs for our Cantona range. The first shows him, arm aloft, having inspired Manchester United to a vital win over Wimbledon. Newcastle led United by 12 points and this victory began the fightback as they defied the odds to claw back the deficit.
The second is from the same season, and shows Cantona and Roy Keane celebrating Eric's sixth-minute strike against Manchester City in April that year which put United neck and neck with Kevin Keegan's Newcastle. The Geordies crumbled under pressure and Fergie's young side went on to achieve an incredible double.
Fergie had offloaded Mark Hughes, Paul Ince and Andrei Kanchelskis in the summer leading Alan Hansen to remark famously that "You'll never win anything with kids." But a youthful team including Ryan Giggs, David Beckham, Paul Scholes, Nicky Butt and the Neville Brothers spectacularly proved him wrong.
Check out the icons shop now to buy these superb items of sporting memorabilia.

Our remaining stock of signed Eric Cantona shirts are now down to £99.99, reduced from £199.99. Unfortunately, due to a printing problem there is a slight pink tinge to the name and numbering, which is why these are such a bargain. Our money-back guarantee applies as always though.
