Football, soccer - the great sport. The word can, when taking the world into account stand for a lot of different sports, from the uk variety that it is commonly used to refer (kickabout, football) to the American football and even Chinese football which can in actual fact prove to be very different sports.
Here we discuss the british football, football that used to comprise of two teams of men chasing a pig skin around a grass field. Its developed a lot since those days, and with progression of the sport football collectables have also changed. With over 100 years of history football collectables have become varied from some original footballs, kits and programmes to the newer more celebrity game.
Now synthetic materials rule the pitchs with carbon fibre and synthetic football boots, football kits and even the ball is a far cry from yesteryear footballs. The sport of football, and therefore the football collectables associated with it have changed over the years considerably.
Football player autographs and more modern football memorabilia dominates the football collectables market for recent years, and as the more antique collectables become older they are becoming more scarce and expensive. So if you see a rare older football collectable it may be worth grabbing it while you can!
