Classic football shirts – hobby, fascination, addiction.
Since I remember football was a very important part of my life. At the beginning I was watching few games per month, later it was more. Right know I can watch football all the time. My favorite is English Premiership. After time I became interested something more then a football. It wasn?t enough, I needed something more, I started searching deeper about football clubs history, from beginning to present. A specially my attention focused on classic football shirts, about history, sponsors, manufacturers.
At the beginning it wasn?t so easy, internet access was hard to get. I had to searching in international press, football albums, archives. My hobby began to absorb more and more time, I was searching deeper and deeper, it start to be? a addiction. Right now is much easier, global Network is properly everywhere. Writing this blog I want to share with people like me information what I found about clubs, history, interesting facts, ?artifacts? what I found and about my personal opinions.
I know it?s a lot of people who like me are fascinating a retro football shirts. Around the world I met a lot of people who collect rare vintage football shirts, they can buy a item from pal from other end of world, they can searching for hours to find a missing part of their collection, sometimes it?s crazy!;). My hobby and people similar to me is very hard because like I wrote before is like addiction, real! If You started ?playing? whit this, You want more and more ?I?ve got vintage Manchester United football shirt from 1994, no I want older, rarer?. It?s like that. When I was starting it was hard to get a original classic football shirt, so I was buying fake reply, I remember my first shirt, it was a replica of Juventus from Champions League final 1997, on the back: ?#21 Zidane?, I was love it! I was a just a kid but I now it is love for whole life.
After that I was spending more money, more time to search for original and more rare shirts. At the beginning classic football shirts it was a small part of my closet, right now it?s a quite big collection. The biggest part of my ?trophies? are shirts of English clubs but I got a lot of more different stuff. I like to get old football shirts from ?exotic? parts of world, like for example Sierra Leone national team or Basque national team. Another thing are away and second or third shirts. It?s very hard to get a rare shirt in good condition, that?s why there are so valuable.
My favorite in collecting a classic football shirts is unique of them. Unique in almost everything, it?s amazing! Sometimes it?s a real small difference, color of collar, location of club logo, sponsor logo shape, etc. For normal people imperceptible detail, for collector big difference. It?s something fascinating to have a something unique, something special, thing what have only a few people worldwide. That?s make You feel special, like art collectors. Yes it?s some kind art, art for people who loves football, like me, like many people similar to me. For that kind of people is this blog.
