The No10 long-sleeved red jersey, manufactured by Umbro, is to be put up for auction by Sotheby’s on 12 July.
Gabriel Heaton of Sotheby’s said: “This shirt, worn by the match’s star player, is the most significant obtainable artefact relating to this historic match. It represents a legendary moment in the annals of English football, and a sporting achievement that has never been repeated in half a century.”
Hurst had begun the campaign as one of the substitutes but took his place in the starting line-up after Jimmy Greaves suffered an injury. He will forever be associated with Kenneth Wolstenhome’s television commentary as he completed the scoring in extra-time: “Here comes Hurst… some people are on the pitch. They think it’s all over… it is now!”
The sale comes two days after the final of the European Championship when England can only hope to still be competing.
