Hello all
I am a avid(wife would say certifiable) collector of anything football related and any sports memorabilia .
Presently I have over a thousand football shirts .
I am attempting to sort them out .
Does anyone know if any of the programme fairs accept football shirts.

Hi SA and welcome to the forum.
Can't answer you myself as I have never collected shirts but imagine someone with more knowledge than me will come along soon.

Cheers, Jamie.

Yes, welcome SA.

I'd say get rid of the shirts and collect something taking up less storage space.......... press photos, for example!

Welcome SA

I have seen stalls at some fairs selling shirts, but it is probably at the discretion of the individual organisers.
There are a few coming up in the next month or so depending where you are based and are listed at the bottom right of the page.

Most fairs would probably welcome something different. I occasionally take a couple of shirts with me to fairs, and will have some at the Accrington Stanley one in ten days time. It's a huge market, and some of the prices they fetch are mind boggling. Lastw eek a retro Grimsby Town top from less than ten years back went for £200 plus.

Seriously have no idea of what all the clubs and countries there actually are .
Have been collecting for over 20 years .
