    Default Memorabilia

    Over the last year, to keep the boredom at bay, I started back on my match worn shirt collection again. Buying some new ones and putting pictures of them on Twitter and Instagram.

    https://twitter.com/chrysalyce?s=09

    Has anyone else been doing something similar?

    Oh and (shameless request) if anyone has anything the want to sell/trade ping me or if anyone has anything you want help finding let us know someone may be able to help.
    I could agree with you but then we would both be wrong.

    I did the opposite. A few years back I realised that my shirt 'collection' was no use to anybody sitting in my loft. Mates took the ones that they wanted. Sold the rest on Ebay.
    I'm still selling my old programmes (very slowly!) for about 3 each.
    It was triggered by me clearing out my late mother things from her house. I realised that my family wouldn't particularly want the stuff I was hanging on to!

    I did that too Barry with my replicas, but I just spent my positive PayPal balance on more shirts. I am weak.

    That's not weak mate, it's 'focused'!
    As AG said, it's quite a collection you have there.

    I’ve got a handful of Saints matchworn shirts. I’d like to add to that and get some more, much to the dismay of the Mrs.

    I'm in the middle of that same exercise myself at the moment and had similar thoughts about the piles of stuff I have!

    I do have a shirt that I have not seen anywhere else. It's a match worn Lokamotiv Moscow RL shirt that I bought in an auction at Sportsman's dinner. As unique as you will get I think.

    It has been good to find out that there are a lot of collectors out there with dismayed partners. My wife has been comparing me to hank out of Breaking Bad with his mineral collection.

    The nearest thing I have seen to that is a Russian national shirt. They are very distinct. Got any pictures of it to share?

    I have an American mate who collects beer cans. Empty ones, opened from the bottom so you don't damage the ring-pull. He calls it ''can-ately', and goes to 'canventions' to trade with the like-minded.
    I thought it was mad until he started sending me money to buy them, drink the beer and send him the empties!
    I've no idea what his ex-wife thought of it!

    Just to keep with the rugby theme, I took him and his son to K Rd a few years back. Standing under the the Scaff was quite an experience for them!

    It's this exact shirt bar the badge I think mine is slightly different. Same sponsor though. I do wear it occasionally.

    This is the badge.

    That's pretty sad although I collect trainers which others probably find sad.

    I was supposed to swap a Saints training shirt for some PNG team shirt but the bloke didn't bring it. Didn't fancy it much anyway as personal hygiene wasn't their strong point.

    I think it's better in the flesh to be honest.

    You're not alone. My son works for a well known trainer manufacturer and some of the limited stuff they produce goes for silly money!

    I was going to sell this on the match worn face book site, but if you are interested I am selling a 1987 Great Britain tracksuit v France (embroidered) it was owned by Chris Arkwright and is signed by him. He was a non playing squad member.

    That sounds like a great item but I don't collect stuff like that. I have to be strict with myself otherwise I will just buy everything.
    I could agree with you but then we would both be wrong.

    That sounds like a cracking shirt, as Dave said, it has to be a rare one.

    1999 was completely different to anything we've had before or since, and is synonymous with our first grand final win, I'm surprised we've never gone back to it as a retro top.

    We've had a few very good away kits, I personally liked the 'Can of McEwans" in 1997 and the Black one we wore at Twickenham
