The Euro’s are a momentous occasion in the football calendar, and if you’ve been around long enough, you may just have a collectable hanging in your wardrobe.
The UEFA Euro’s 1996 hosted by England was home to the ‘It’s Coming Home’ era – ring a bell? During this epic season of football, England had some famous wins and even more unforgettable losses.
Remember Gazza’s famous Dentist Chair Goal Against Scotland with the delightful lobbing of Colin Hendry? If you’ve got your hands on a Gascoine or Hendry Shirt, you could cash them in for a pretty penny with them going for £220 and £200 respectively!
The Holland Shirt – the uniform donned when England unforgettably beat Holland 4-1 in their final group game. If you’ve got a Dennis Bergkamp shirt hanging around? You may be in for a treat with them fetching a cool £200.
Skip to the 1996 semi-finals – The Germany Shirt symbolises a more sombre memory of when England was beaten by Germany. Nonetheless, this German Shirt is now worth a few quid with a Klinsmann shirt still fetching £175.
Or how about Wales best player of the 2016 tournament that’s still worth £90 after just 5 years so who knows what it’ll be worth in another 25 years! Or a Beckham shirt from Euro 2000 still fetching £150 showing how he’s classed as an England all time great.
Tipping the top spot though is an England shirt that was used in the 1980 Euros & 1982 World Cup as the Home Shirt showing that England shirts of yesteryear lasted you longer than a year before being out of date. It’s now worth a staggering £450 – a nice bit of cash if you’re not sentimental.
So our advice in this tournament is look out for those special moments and players of the tournament and get buying shirts, you never know in 50 years they might be worth a pretty penny.

So, if you have something you think is of value, or thinking of buying a collectable, these are the main things to look out for:
- Age — anything over 50 years old is most collectable. What’s in your grandad’s shed?
- Rarity — if there are many available, this will bring the value down. Not everyone’s been to a FA Cup Final… anything final related holds a lot of value. A Cup Final programmes are always of a high value
- Popularity — programmes with an iconic footballer on the cover or detailing a famous match are the most prized and valuable. A footballer or managers last game for a club increases the match day programmes value… so it’s worth checking!
- Condition — It goes without saying that creases, missing staples and water damage all harm the price of the memorabilia. Keep it in the best nick you can.
With Premier League season restarting, now could be a great time to dust off any memorabilia you’ve had the last few decades hiding in storage.
