If your on this site your obviously interested in football … and in particular football memorabilia. We do of course have thousands of items for sale which can be found using the links on the left hand side, however we thought it might be helpul to set up a page outling exactly what is available overall in the world of football.
The football memorabilia market is absolutely huge, ranging from little football pin badges that you can pick up for a couple of pound outside the ground through to a rare old football programme that could set you back thousands !!!
So where DO you start - Maybe you want to specialise in a certain era, a certain genre of memorabilia (cigarette cards, badges, programmes, trading cards etc) or more likely it will be your love of a particular football team that drives your collection and you will end up collecting a multitude of different items of your teams memorabilia, whichever it is there is such a massive range of football memorabilia out there that you will probably never ever stop once you get into it !!
That is why these pages are not intended to cover in great detail every aspect of the football memorabilia market, that would be impossible as it is too vast a subject to do any justice to, what we will do though is give you an idea of the various collectables and the sort of item you will find.
If you would like to get a bit more detail than that shown in the various sections I have also added a few links at the bottom of this page to some other more specific pages dedicated to the various areas of football memorabilia.
Of course in the broadest sense of the word memorabilia probably brings to mind old items, perhaps relating to teams from the 60s and 70s, however the good thing about football memorabilia is that is not necessarily the case. Yes, an item relating to the 1966 World Cup Final is going to have a high value, but then again so is something from this years FA Cup Final, especially if your lucky enough to support the team that won it !
So you see age isn’t perhaps such a big factor in what is and isnt collectable. It really is down to the individual what sort of memorabilia they want and cannot be defined by age alone.
One thing we can guarantee is that no matter how old or young you are, no matter which team you support, no matter which area of football memorabilia you concentrate on there is always going to be another item you will want to get hold of so if your going to get into football memorabilia be prepared for it to become an obsession !!
Hopefully this site may well give you an idea of the various items of memorabilia available and how and where to pick them up, we will also try and flag up a few of the pitfalls awaiting you as well if your not careful about what you buy.
