David Seaman busts seller of signed picture who spelt his name wrong

An online seller flogging bogus signed photos of David Seaman was busted when the goalkeeper spotted his name had been spelt wrong.

A profile - named Randy Catterick - has been trying to sell a “signed picture of David Seman” for £5 on Facebook Marketplace.

The picture - from Euro 96 - says: “All the best David Seman x.”

However the ex-England hero was alerted after the chancer spelt his name wrong in the signature.

The bungling salesman, from Hull, Numbers, also left the black marker pen he had apparently used to sign the picture of Seaman in the advertising photo.

Ross Collier tweeted the 56-year-old shot stopper about the picture.

He said: “This is genuinely for sale on Facebook Marketplace @thedavidseaman.”

The ex-Arsenal ace replied: “Signed by who?”

Twitter users reacted in hilarity at the alleged “signed photo”.

One said: “Love how the pen is in clear view.”

Darren Browne commented: “I mean it’s technically accurate it’s both a picture of David Seaman and it’s signed by someone.”

Kieran Bridge laughed: “What a signature.”

Luke Dixon joked: “Seems legit.”

Neil Taylor added: “Certificate of authenticity included I assume.”

Evan Amir asked: “Maybe it was meant to be sent to David Seaman wishing him ‘All The Best’.”

Shaun Vincent commented: “It's the sharpie on the desk that does me.”

Rob Vincent added: “I’m going in with a £10 bid as it looks like the real deal to me.”

The photo is of Seaman in his iconic kit at Euro 96, when England reached the semi finals.

The goalkeeper was the hero several times in the tournament, saving a penalty in the Three Lions’ 2-0 win over Scotland, and again in a quarterfinal shootout against Spain.

Sadly England lost on penalties to Germany in the next game.

Seaman played 75 times for England between 1988 and 2002, appearing at two world cups.

He also won three league titles with Arsenal and four FA Cups.
