Sports Idols give expectant fans a boost with Man U signed shirts

Sittingbourne, Kent, (Mynewsdesk) May 14 2010 – Kent-based memorabilia merchant Sports Idols have boosted their stock of Man U signed shirts in preparation for a thrilling end of season race.  With six games left to go and Man U leading rivals Chelsea by a single point, everything looks set for a bona fide thriller – both on and off the pitch, with the off squarely centred around the fiercely contested market in Man U signed memorabilia.

Manchester United signed memorabilia, like all top flight football memorabilia, is subject to a “popularity index” based on the performance of the club in a year of signing.  Simply put, this means:  if Man U win the Premiership, sales of Man U signed shirts will go through the roof.  Small wonder, then, that Sports Idolshas increased its stock of Man U signed shirts in plenty of time for what pundits will already be calling the thrilling finale.

The whole popularity index for Manchester United memorabilia is (like most things) a little more complicated than simply selling more units at the end of a good season.  Teams who fall at the last hurdle (remember Liverpool in 1989?) find their signed merchandise subject to a similar hike in popularity – so, for example, Liverpool shirts circa 1989 are still popular, not because Liverpool won the League, but because of the part they played in football history.  When that Michael Thomas shot sank the Kop with the final touch of the ’88-’89 season, Liverpool shirts of that era became immensely popular as landmarks for a great moment in footballing history.  So if Man U lose out on their last fixture, Man U signed shirts stand a pretty good chance of rising in popularity for the same reason.  All of which, of course, means that Sports Idols, with their extended stock of Man U signed memorabilia, are sitting pretty whichever way the footie cookie crumbles.

Sports Idols stock of Manchester United signed shirts has enough A-list oomph in it to make even the most jaundiced eye water.  Consider, for a moment, the squad – and then take a sweep through the Man U signed shirts on offer. Sports Idols has collected an end of season bounty capable of bolstering even the most complete collection:  Rooney; Giggs; Ferdinand; Berbatov.  All authenticated, signed and presented (should the buyer choose to spend the extra sixty quid) in rather wonderful boardroom-quality frames.  As if that wasn’t enough, Sports Idols has built a roster of Man U signed memorabilia from past legends that makes the Football Hall of Fame’s own collection look like it came free with a packet of Panini stickers.  Anyone fancy owning a genuine Eric Cantona football boot?  How about Man U signed shirts for Paul Scholes or Ole Solskjaer?  Look no further.  The index of football popularity means that all Man United signed memorabilia for the last 20 years just keeps on getting more valuable – and Sports Idols has the most impressive collection of it in the UK.
