Whitstable, Kent, UK (mynewsdesk), 26 November 2010 – From Arnold Palmer to Tiger Woods; from Muhammad Ali to Amir Khan; from Freddy Flintoff to Ian Botham: Kent based super sports memorabilia site Sports Idols has got it all. While football is of course very well covered (the site even has an area dedicated to non Premiership teams, ensuring that every soccer fan the length and breadth of the British Isles has something to shop for), the other major sports in the UK have been well accounted for, with boxing memorabilia, golf memorabilia and cricket memorabilia containing some surprising, and in some cases very valuable, finds.
Sports Idols has made an outstanding selection across the board of the “other” British sports, bringing fans of the gentlemen’s game (cricket), the other gentlemen’s game (boxing) and the good walk spoiled (golf) a treasure trove of items to make their pre Christmas mouths water. Golf fans all over the country will be frantically attempting to make room in the snug, study or lounge for an item of Arnold Palmer golf memorabilia, while devotees of the Queensberry rules will be wondering how much of their house they should prepare to receive a genuine authenticated Muhammad Ali, George Foreman and Sonny Liston signed glove. Boxing memorabilia fans should also look out for Jake “Raging Bull” La Motta signed souvenirs, while anyone out for cricket memorabilia is sure to be falling over him (or her) self to get his or her hands on some of the incredible Shane Warne, Ricky Ponting, Graham Gooch and Ian Botham signed memorabilia on offer.
As if that wasn’t enough to get sports fans all over Britain jumping for their PCs and lap tops, Sports Idols has rather cleverly come up with a special lottery to entice customers in for the pre Christmas buying rush. The sports memorabilia lottery, which is run directly from the site by a completely automated program, offers lucky customers the chance to win serious money, payable in the form of an electronic voucher redeemable on site. Suddenly that Ali/Foreman/Liston glove doesn’t look so out of reach...
Boxing memorabilia, cricket memorabilia and golf memorabilia items may in some cases be completely paid for by the e vouchers won as customers enter themselves for the site lottery. More expensive items in the Sports Idols sports memorabilia stock list will require further payment to make up the difference. Entry is easy and can be completed in minutes.
With most sports souvenir sites concentrating only on football, and only on Premiership football at that, Sports Idols has become one of the few online suppliers of sporting signed items that also delivers an adequate range of boxing memorabilia, cricket memorabilia and golf memorabilia. Indeed, the range sourced and shown by Sports Idols to date is way more than adequate – it’s one of the best we’ve seen, and fairly priced to ensure buyer confidence in the authenticity of the items.
Sports Idol’s track record in the world of sports memorabilia is, so far, unsullied. Its authentication process, which is one of the best in the business, ensures it remains that way. Happy shopping!
