It all began at the start of the 1968-69 season, the acquisition of my first matchday programme 17th August 1968 West Ham United v. Nottingham Forest. A game which saw Geoff Hurst scoring the only goal of the match, even a 1-4 home reverse against Everton two days later didn’t dampen my enthusiasm for my new found passion West Ham United and memorabilia associated with the Claret and Blue. By then it was too late, I was hooked.
Happy collecting and remember...

The hardest decision a collector of football memorabilia is likely to have to make is what to collect. For me, it was a case of trying to draw a line under what not to collect.
Thankfully for me I didn’t succumb to that decision.

Tuesday September 22, 2020 marks the 50th anniversary of one of West Ham United's most prestigious friendly matches.
Back in 1970, in a game billed as "Bobby Moore v Pele", the Hammers flew to New York to face the world's greatest footballer and his Santos teammates in front of a capacity crowd at Downing Stadium on Randalls Island.
The 1970-71 season was not one of West Ham's most memorable but the Santos friendly game gave the Hammers some respite from their relegation worries, and the chance for 19 year old Clyde Best to match Pele in the goal stakes.
