(PRWeb UK) June 22, 2010
So the last whistle has blown, the terraces have cleared and the Premiership trophy (not to mention the FA Cup) is now sitting on the shelf at Stamford Bridge. Again. Chelsea memorabilia, as predicted a few weeks ago, is once more the most sought after signed football goody in the UK.
That said, the other three clubs traditionally associated with memorabilia mayhem aren’t doing so badly either. Liverpool memorabilia retains a steady high turnover, despite the club’s somewhat peculiar performances towards the end of the season; Manchester United memorabilia hasn’t been unduly affected by last-minute disappointments on the pitch; and Arsenal memorabilia, even though the Gunners almost got pipped for third spot by arch rivals Tottenham Hotspur, has held its own as well.
In part, the continued appeal of Arsenal memorabilia, Liverpool memorabilia and Manchester United memorabilia (Chelsea memorabilia is already spoken for, thanks to their unqualified if slightly predictable success) has to do with the international brand names the clubs have become. England’s Big Four are recognised across the world, associated with the ideas both of stellar football, and of fanatic fan loyalty, in a branding trick reminiscent of coups pulled off by popular soft drinks or sports shoe companies. Simply put, Liverpool memorabilia, Arsenal memorabilia, Manchester United memorabilia and Chelsea memorabilia will always sell no matter where in the league the clubs associated with it end up finishing. The names and badges of the clubs alone are enough to sell signed merchandise by the boatload.
Boatloads are what Autographs Store has, if early indications are anything to go by. The Kent memorabilia store has been pursuing an aggressive end of season acquisitions policy, dramatically bolstering their stocks not only for the traditional close season “run” on top team clobber, but in time for a renewed fervour of interest surrounding the World Cup. It won’t have escaped the notice of the Kent based souvenir sellers, any more than it has the fans of the clubs in question, that Chelsea memorabilia, Arsenal memorabilia, Liverpool memorabilia and Manchester United memorabilia is all crammed full of the signatures of players who may end up scoring (or stopping) important goals in the World Cup.
South Africa 2010 is only weeks away, and most of the squads (certainly the first team players) of the Big Four are now appearing in friendly matches across the globe. Signatures on Autographs Store’s new stocks of Chelsea memorabilia, Arsenal memorabilia, Liverpool memorabilia and Manchester United memorabilia are popping up in international shirts all over the world, impressing fans with their pre-championship flair. The seeds are being sown for an extra flurry of interest in their signed gear and all that Autographs Store, having bulked up their stock sufficiently, needs to do is sit back and watch the orders roll in. Like everything else in the beautiful game, only one team can end up winning come two months’ time: but every autograph vendor in the business gets to win too. Particularly the lads and lasses from sports memorabilia distributor Autographs Store.
Autographs Store is a Kent based vendor of Manchester United memorabilia, Chelsea memorabilia, Arsenal memorabilia and Liverpool memorabilia. All their stock is delivered free.
