eBay – England football shirts and old game tickets that could be worth up to £950
England fans who have old shirts and old match tickets gathering dust in their loft could be sitting on a small fortune.
Football fever has reached new heights after the Three Lions secured its place in the final of the Euros 2020 – its first major tournament final in 55 years.
Their win means Gareth Southgate’s squad will now take on Italy at Wembley Stadium this Sunday (July 11) in the hopes of bringing home the trophy.
Following the success of the national team, football fans may want to check if any memorabilia they have could net them worth a fortune.
We round up five pieces of merch that have recently sold for a tidy sum on eBay.
Of course, you should keep in mind the final price you could get for an item is never guarantee when you put something up for auction.
Or if you’re planning on buying some merch, watch out for fake goods and scammers who try to trick you out of money.
Old football shirts – £950
Some of the most valuable pieces of England memorabilia we spotted on eBay include old football shirts that have been signed by ex-players.
In one example, a 1978/79 Admiral shirt signed by former footballer and coach Viv Anderson fetched an impressive £948 on the auction site.
In its product description, the player said: “It has been signed ‘All the best Viv Anderson 5/8/09’. I’m presuming this was given away by Viv at an event or as a gift.
“The shirt has been framed in the past and does have a few marks on the sleeve from where it was attached to the backing, these can be seen in the photos.”
We also spotted a 1988 Tony Adams match-worn shirt from an England versus The Netherlands match in London that sold for £750.
The seller said: “Adams scored a goal and an own goal in the game. The shirt was swapped with a Dutch player who is providing a COA.”
Match balls – £640
If you’ve got a match ball kicking around, it could be worth up to £640 if you sell it on eBay.
One Adidas Speedcell football from the 2011 U21 European Finals in Denmark recently sold for this price on the auction site.
England played Spain in this match, drawing 1-1 at the final whistle.
Upper Deck boxes – £450
Upper Deck trading cards are selling for a tidy sum on eBay, particularly if you have sealed boxes of them.
These are types of cards that are particular valuable to collectors who are trying to complete their set.
The best-selling sealed box we’ve seen on eBay was originally sold in 1997 and fetched £450.
It contained 24 packs of cards, with six cards included per pack.
Old game tickets – £270
Ticket stubs can be sold off for a few hundred pounds, with their worth increasing if they haven’t been used.
We spotted one unused ticket from the iconic World Cup England versus Germany final in 1966, plus an official pass, sell for £271.66 recently.
The seller said the ticket belonged to her husband who decided to watch the match at the pub with his friends.
She said: “It has been in my husbands possession since he was given it in 1966…
“The pass belonged to the friend who gave him the ticket and was given to him at the same time and he kept it to prove authenticity.”
Another ticket, this time used, to a Greece versus England game in 1982 also sold for £269.
Old game programmes – £250
If you still have an old game programme, it could sell for as much as £250 in the right hands.
This is what happened when a stadium programme for the Italy versus England friendly, played on May 16, 1948 in Turin, Italy.
The seller said: “This is the only official programme I have ever seen for this match.
“The item is in good condition except the white paper is discoloured with some foxing on the front and back covers and the staple is rusty but as not bled.”
