Fans have always enjoyed collecting and investing in sporting memorabilia. From classic replica shirts to sticker albums and other football souvenirs, fans could be sitting on a goldmine without even knowing it.
Authentic and retro vintage shirts can sell for hundreds of pounds online and are particularly popular with footie fans who are eager to spend a small fortune to collect the memorabilia.
If you manage to get your hands on the right item at the right time, you could find yourself sitting on a tidy profit.
So, the team at NetVoucherCodes started wondering, how much would the best of the best memorabilia sell for?
Do you know what to look for and how much an item you already own in storage could be worth?
Well, we’ve researched and identified exactly which football-related keepsakes have the most value in 2020.
Football fans could be sitting on a secret treasure trove without even knowing it. Here’s the lowdown on the most popular football memorabilia, from retro shirts to sticker albums.
The prices of other rare items, including medals, sticker albums and programmes, have also shot up and they can sell for hundreds.
From footballs to training strips, you can see the full research with all the items and costs here…
If you are lucky to own any of these items, then congratulations you could sell for a nice profit, or keep as it may well provide sentimental value. Either way it’s a win-win.
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.
