Where has the last year gone!!! We still are glad to say we are busy and had a great year. But itís all older playersí signatures that people seem to want. As its World cup year hereís hoping for some 1966 sales!!! We get asked the question all the time should you invest in memorabilia? Our answer is always the same. Buy something because you want it primarily and if it turns out to be an investment in years to come thatís a bonus. We advised clients when to buy Nelson Mandelaís and when not to those who listened will certainly be in profit. But then the question keeps coming up about Muhammad Ali. Should you buy now or have you missed the boat? We have put together some items only available to clients who email us that we feel are price wise good value and feel the price we are selling at cannot comedown any more. More importantly the authenticity must be right whatever you buy. Our very busy valuation department had to recently advise someone who wanted something insured and needed a valuation that their item was worth a minimum amount as it was clearly a fake they were devastated it turns out they bought from somewhere that is no longer trading email address is unknown mobile number is dead. Why do people do it? We are currently holding our West Ham heads in disbelief and our valuation department was not sure what to value this seasonís team signed shirt for!!! Happy New Year!

Firstly apologies for no news for a while it has been a manic time and the memorabilia market had had up and downs this year. We as ever are busy our boss says ďif sales do not come through the door then we have to go and get them and in time this will pay offĒ and the last 12 months have certainly proved dividends using this way to get sales and try and satisfy and more discerning buying public. Auctions have been interesting silent auctions are certainly the more popular where customers can discreetly place bids on items plus the reserves are a lot less. Our vintage items are still selling and this seems to be our exclusive niche in the world memorabilia market. We have for over a year been selling the collection of the former referee Ken Aston. What a history in football he had. He invented the red and yellow cards and he was responsible for a number of rules of the game. His knowledge was used in World Cups from 1962 to 1994, Olympics from 1968 up to 1992 he was instrumental in the setting up of the American Youth Soccer organisation. He instructed referees all over the World. Domestically he refereed the FA Cup final in 1963, loads of European games. The items we have sold include lineman flags, medals, tickets, plaques, books if you are interested in the history why not look at the items we have have or we can send you a list as the stock is changing monthly. For a number of years we have try to predict the football for the forthcoming season it certainly causes some comments from our clients so here goes top 4 is fairly easy however itís the 5/6/7/8 places so we are going with Chelsea, Everton, Tottenham, Swansea. To be relegated Norwich, Cardiff, possibly dare we say it Newcastle? No European titles this year and FA Cup lets go for our team West Ham,& Swansea for the final. We also have everything crossed for the England team to get to the World cup finals at the time of writing this does not appear to be definite. Our valuation and buying department has grown from strength to strength and more and more insurance companies are now asking for valuations from proper dealers to establish credibility of items. Have a good summer just think of us chained to the desks while you all sun yourselves!

Hello there and welcome to our can you believe it half way through the year newsletter.
Thereís been some great business in the last couple of months, people buying items that have been in stock for a long time and once again we are delighted to welcome new people to our website.

We were delighted to be invited in our AFTAL capacity to feature as an advisor on BBC1ís Fake Britain, demonstrating the difference between an original autograph and a pre-printed autograph. You will be safe in the knowledge that even the BBC are now using our advice and yet another reason for buying with complete safe knowledge concerning authenticity of the memorabilia we sell.

Fathers day gifts were a bit slow we were surprised with all the ďnewĒ older stock us particularly with the legends of the early 1950s/1960s and some lovely pieces of very rare memorabilia coming through.

Since our last news letter there was the sad passing of Sir Henry Cooper. Henry was very giving autograph signer and one of the nicest Gentlemen in sport.

Please donít forget to look at our soccer-bid shop on ebay. We have got some new items on there and we discount some other items that are not necessarily all seen on this site; however we do appreciate that ebay is a worldwide shop window. Some exclusive things on the ebay shop this month include a Jesse Owens signed 1st day cover. This Iím sure you will realize is very rare lots of 1966 related items. Neil Armstrong signed autograph

As board members of the AFTAL organization, we regularly do a news letter for our AFTAL dealers and we have decided to take a portion of last months newsletter where we have put in our opinion the top ten sports signers that we have had pleasure with dealing with. A lot of which are our clients on our associate company The Old Boyís Network www.tobn.co.uk however we have worked with so many sports people across the years.
Thanks once again for your continued custom and we look forward to speaking to you soon.

Soccerbid.co.uk sports celebrities 2011 autograph signers

No 10 Pat Jennings. Pat never seems to have a problem and is always accommodating with his signature, he gives time with people and doesnít mind posing for photographs. When he puts his big hand in your hand to shake it there is genuine warmth from him.

No.9 Sir Henry Cooper now passed on but up to around two years ago he was always a very accommodating signer, particularly good with children at boxing events and fairly consistent with his style of signing, never to hurried and a lovely gentleman that hadnít let the money side of autographs change him.

No.8 A surprising choice Steve Collins a former middle weight boxer. I was recently surprised at an event when quite a number of celebrities had gone home Steve was still signing autographs, having photographs taken with people and giving people all the time in the world. He was a great boxer in his day, sadly he talks a million miles and hour and quite difficult to always understand what he is saying, however he means well and is very giving and has time for people.

No7. Andy Murray obviously itís best to get him when he is either winning or away from the tennis environment. His signature has changed over the last few years; he still has time for people and will pose for photographs and his recent appearance on Comic Relief, although it was a sketch it shows it is typical of him where he will give time to autograph hunters.

No6. Gareth Edwards, although Gareth is now aware of the commercial implications concerning autographs, he is still a very giving person. However, if suddenly approached with a number of photographs or shirts he wonít necessary sign them all but you would certainly get one or two. He is a real legend and possibly one of the greatest rugby players in the world.

No5. Billy Bonds, obviously with our personal West Ham connection there had to be a Hammer in there somewhere. Billy who was a tough footballer, this was for solely on the pitch he is nothing like that off the pitch. He is always very giving when out and about. He doesnít mind posing for photographs and quite a number of times after a function will go and join a group of lads at the bar, have photographs done with them give autographs when really his job of work is finished and he could be on his way home.

No 4. The great Bobby Moore, our first ever client. Bobby always had time for people; it is such a same that he didnít get a real chance to experience the renewed interest in the 1966 team. He came in very early when the big interest in sports memorabilia was starting. This was in the days when former players particularly in memorabilia were just starting to get paid. I remember organizing a signing of First Day covers for him, when he was paid a massive amount of £1.50 an autograph. In those days it was thought to be disgusting that he should be paid for his autograph I had many an abusive phone calls where people felt that players should give their autograph away for nothing so they could sell at vast profits. How many of those Bobby Mooreís do we see now on the market at hundreds of pounds?

No.3 Peter Shilton Ė People often ask us why Peter Shilton signature is not so valuable. The reason is he is such a giving celebrity over the long period of his career, which was almost 35 years, and has given a lot of autographs in that time. It is quite funny watching him at functions where senior directors are barking down their phone at their secretaries and juniors giving it the big ďI amĒ sitting on the top table trying to appear important, then stand up like a little boy to try and meet and get the autograph of Englandís most Capped Footballer. Many a function has over run hours where Peter was giving his autograph to early hours of the morning.

No2 Sir Stanley Mathews ones of the legends of the game who would give hundreds of autographs away every day on street corners and outside football grounds because he gave away so many his autograph is still easy to find at reasonable cost. We did a commercial signing with him just before his passing and he was embarrassed at being paid for doing something that he had freely done most of his life.

No1 Frank Bruno is not good for the memorabilia industry as he is such a giving signer many a time people stop him in his car to get an autograph with the little face at the end of the autograph he makes the fan feel special. His signed gloves and replica shorts and bigger presentations still seem to get good money but photos and books are every where!

Once again we have been delighted with the sales we have received and meeting new customers on our Soccer-bid Ebay shop. (Please note the Ė in the title)

You would have noticed now that we have extended our range of older legends, material from the 1950ís/60ís, as we seemed to have found ourselves a specialized market for these and obviously they are quite rare. Ideal for a fatherís day present!

It is a big charity auction time at the moment and lots of charities and fund raisers are now taken advantage of the wonderful deals we are offering.

We have been pleased to work with not only charities but boxing clubs, hospicesí, rag weeks at universities and fund raising at schools.

There seems to be more and more charities now that need to earn money, plus those who havenít been able to get their grants this year and are looking for other ways to earn money. Working with us, not only does it give your event guests a chance to have something different from the normal auction item but also there is no financial risk to the charity in what is at the moment a precarious market.

We have had some horror stories from some of our competition, where they have taken 25 items to an event and not been able to sell one item. With our items starting as low as £5, surely there is something there for everybody?

We were delighted to recently conduct and on air discussion concerning memorabilia with the National Talk Radio Station in Ireland and regularly continue working with the BBC on their various radio shows.

You will notice that for a number of regular items, the prices seem to be coming down, this is probably now because of the amount of memorabilia currently available.

We are constantly striving to look for a new and interesting items away from our competition and slowly but surely are trying to offer items that are not available anywhere else.
It is quite funny this year with some of the transfers that have gone on in the football market, people now regretting buying something signed by perhaps
Andy Carroll on a Liverpool shirt or even Torres on a Chelsea Shirt. Time will tell.
We sincerely hope that although we are West Ham Fans that these do not prove to be expensive mistakes by both of the clubs.
This is where perhaps legends memorabilia is the thing to buy and how valuable a signed shirt by Torres will be next season if he doesnít perform and gets sold off to another club, this could apply to Andy Carroll as well.

Our valuation department is still busy and is getting more and more request asking for us to authenticate items.

We have now joined with another company who will give a straight yes or no authentication on items for one price or a more detailed authentication for another price. However, we are looking at the moment at the legal implications of this, because even the fakers and people who have made good money in the business selling fake memorabilia want to come out fighting and threatening legal action when we expose their wrong items.

Our valuations are ideal whether you want to sell your item or just get it insured. Please note that your general house insurance does not necessarily cover memorabilia, because they donít seem to understand memorabilia. You need to either take a separate insurance or with your existing insurance company get them to acknowledge in writing accepting the fact that you have memorabilia and this is covered by your policy. We regularly have to do valuations after someone has either lost an item or a fire has occurred and the insurance company is arguing about paying out.
The next time we write we will know if West Ham are still in the Premiership, if Andy Carroll and Tories were a good buy or not. Talking of good buys or good byes until next time.
