Your Opinion Is Needed

It's not this bad...yet.

It’s not this bad…yet.

After much consideration I have decided that it might be time for me to part with my collection of football clothing.  I have pretty much maxed-out my storage space, the cost of new acquisitions is becoming unreasonable, my increasing physical decrepitude means that I don’t play as much as I used to and when I do I’m wearing the shirt of my 40+ league team, not one of my replicas, etc..  I’ll be holding back some items (mostly Ross County F.C. and Scottish National Team items and a few others to which I am sentimentally attached), but otherwise I’m considering selling the lot of it.

Just to give you some perspective, the items listed under “Shirts for Sale” on the site’s front page represent only about 10% of my collection, which includes every thing from shirts, shorts, and socks to sweatshirts, jackets, training tops, scarfs, etc.  Generally speaking everything involved is either a men’s large or extra large and in good to mint condition.  I’m not looking to get rich off this so prices will be negotiable and I can even send you to a few sites where you’ll be able to compare their prices to mine.  But on to the really important part of this- is anyone even interested in obtaining any of these items?

At present I have about 75-80% of my collection “cataloged,” meaning I have a big list of all the items which includes what the shirt is, brand, age, sponsor, etc. which I could easily complete and post as a separate page.  Some of these entries have further information in the cases of items that are in some way “special.”  So, by a show of hands in the comments, who’d be interested in seeing the list?

Also, if you’re in the comments and want to give me an idea of what you’re looking for I can tell you if I have it or not.  I’ll tag this post with the names of some of the clubs/countries in my collection.

    If for no other reason than to see your collection, I think this would be pretty awesome – and perhaps I’d be interested in a shirt or two!

    I’m with GE above – I’d 1) just be interested to see what you’ve collected over the years, and 2) might be willing to purchase an item or two. That’s an interesting list of clubs/countries you’ve got tagged, though I tend to be an impulse buyer based on the looks of the shirt itself, so no one club or country is a guarantee of purchase…

    Alright. It sounds like there’s a bit of interest. I think what I’ll do is I’ll put up a list tomorrow of just the basics (no descriptions) and if people see something that they want more to know about they can say so in a comment/email and then the following day I’ll post pictures of those shirts along with additional information about them.

    Oooh, scarves. I collect those. Generally, I buy a scarf while I’m traveling, but I guess I can do it in reverse where now I could use these to decide where to visit next.
