"In fact that very match still holds the record highest attendance at the ground.
"It just shows that Grimsby Town used to be right up there with Arsenal and Manchester City.
"We want someone to come forward and offer a fair price for the collection.
"The reason why we are selling them is because they are just kept in a cupboard and we want the items to be put to good use and enjoyed by someone.
"There are also some photos of Teddy when he played for Leeds and other players but we don't know who they are.
"The most interesting thing in the collection is his contract that shows he signed to the club for £2,000.
"We don't want to split the collection up because it depicts a great player's career."
Amongst the memorabilia there are fan letters and match reports of some of the games Buck played in.
Jackie remembers her father as a true gentleman of sport.
The 79-year-old added: "I always remember he never made much of being in one of the best teams in the country.
"He always saw it as just a job.
"I will be sad to see it all go but also happy if it goes to the right person.
"The collection really reminds you of the glory days of Grimsby Town.
"In a way it is all priceless because we don't think there is anything else like it out there.
"We just hope a fan comes forward who will enjoy the items."
