The Story of my Shirt Collecting

  For as long as I can remember, I have had 'obscure' football shirts, as my Father used to buy me a shirt from most places he went to abroad, for example I used to have Canvey Island, Legia Warsaw and Wustenrot Salzburg shirts.  At the 2010 World Cup, I immediately fell in love with the Ghana away shirt and so bought it for a hefty £45.  Naturally, I started to Google things such as 'Kyrgyzstan football shirt' and 'Nepal shirt', thinking that I would be able to buy almost any shirt in the world that I wanted at the click of a button.  Unfortunately, it wasn't to be...

  When the Ghana shirt arrived, it took my total up to 6 as I already had an England, Iceland, Peru, Angola and Croatia shirt all from previous holidays (apart from Angola which was bought during the 2006 World Cup in Germany).  Soon I discovered Nick's blog and was inspired.  In October 2010, I created this blog.  As time went by, I gradually got some extremely rare shirts for example Macau and Ethiopia match-worn shirts which now belong to Nick.  Unfortunately, about a year later, I lost interest and decided to sell the majority of my shirts to fund a well-deserved holiday.  Now, I am collecting shirts but only ones which come up at a very good price or are too rare to refuse and I also buy the occasional club shirt, which I will also put up on here.

  In the meantime, here are some other similar blogs:
