Seaman hilariously questions online seller over fake signed photo

England and Arsenal legend David Seaman hilariously questions rogue online trader after they try to sell fake signed photo of him which had his name spelt ‘Seman’ for just £5

  • David Seaman called out a seller after they posted a questionable signed photo
  • A ‘signed’ picture of Seaman was put up for sale on Facebook Marketplace
  • But the signature says ‘Seman’ and questionably has a Sharpie pen next to it
  • The attempt to sell what looks like a fake caused quite a stir on social media 

Former England goalkeeper David Seaman has hilariously quizzed somebody online after they tried to sell a signed pictured of him that had his name spelt wrong.

The seller, named Randy Catterick on their online profile, was advertising the piece of memorabilia on Facebook Marketplace.

It shows Seaman in an England shirt from Euro 96 with a hand-written message that read: ‘All the best David Seman x’.

The photo was posted on Facebook Marketplace but had the goalkeeper’s name as ‘Seman’

The former Arsenal and England goalkeeper found the attempt hilarious and questioned it

The photo was available to prospective buyers for just £5 and was listed earlier this week with the seller’s location as Hull. 

But Seaman, 56, was alerted to the picture when somebody tagged him in a tweet and he found the situation hilarious.

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?’ 

To make matters worse for the seller, they left a Sharpie pen in the picture which saw a number of people suggest the signature was a forgery. 

A post later shared on Facebook seems to suggest the picture was eventually sold for £5 and it was later taken down. 

The photo is of Seaman in his iconic kit at Euro 96, when England reached the semi finals before losing to Germany on penalties. 

Seaman won nine major trophies during 13 years with Arsenal and made 480 appearances

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 quarter-final shootout against Spain. 

Sadly England lost after an epic encounter in the next game.

Seaman played 75 times for England between 1988 and 2002, appearing at two World Cups. 

He lifted nine major trophies during his stellar 13 years with Arsenal and made 480 appearances in total for them. 

One fan wrote: ‘Love that the Sharpie is still in the shot like he’s literally just signed it, framed it and taken the picture!’ 

Chris Cook posted: ‘No way, seriously? The guys even left his sharpie in the photo’. 

Another tweeted: ‘I mean its technically accurate its both a picture of @thedavidseaman and its signed by someone’.
