Many Ballers choose to have a dedicated collection of sporting memorabilia, collectors’ items and other objects of interest. Although sometimes these collections are dedicated towards a particular team or sport, they can also be more varied. Regardless of which team you follow or which sport in particular gets your fired up, you will know doubt have heard of the footballing legend known as Pele. Now, the Icons collection gives you the opportunity to purchase a football shirt personally signed by Pele himself.
Icons has travelled the world to organise signing sessions with some of the greatest legends of football. While the Pele shirt is possibly the most presitigious, the Maradona signed Argentina shirt runs a close second. Both are offered for sale through Harrods.
The Pelé shirt is designed to resemble a Brazilian jersey from the 1970 World Cup. It was in this tournament that Pelé really made his mark on the international scene, and cemented his reputation as one of the greatest players in the history of the game. Indeed to many the team fielded by Brazil in that tournament was the greatest international team in the history of soccer, and Pelé was it’s leading player and the lynch pin of the entire team. The shirt features the number 10, which is in itself an icon amongst soccer fans. The signed Pelé shirt harks back to the glory days of 1970, and is a valuable sporting item.
The signed Pelé Football shirt comes with a certificate of authenticity, along with a photograph of Pelé himself signing the shirt. This football shirt costs just £795, and is available from Harrods at http://www.harrods.com/HarrodsStore/find/c/giftcards,gifts-for-him/p/000000000001377211 .
The Icons collection also features a signed shirt from Diego Maradona, in this case an Argentinian World Cup shirt which is designed as a replica to those worn by the 1986 team. It was in the 1986 World Cup, which Argentina subsequently won, that Maradona made his greatest mark on the international scene. It was in this tournament that he scored his legendary Goal of the Century, and of course the infamous Hand of God goal. Again this shirt is available with a certificate of authenticity and with a photograph of Maradona during the autograph session. It is also priced at £795, and is available from Harrods at http://www.harrods.com/HarrodsStore/find/c/giftcards,gifts-for-him/p/000000000001813537.
A signed Cesc Fabergas shirt is also available through Harrods, which is a replica Spanish international football team shirt from Euro 2008. Only 20 shirts were signed by Fabergas, which adds to the value and exclusivity of this autographed shirt. The Fabergas shirt can be purchased for just £495, also from Harrods. All of the Icons collection can be viewed on the company website, www.icons.com, which offers a wide range of sporting memorabilia from all of the top players in the game.
