Chelsea memorabilia


Carloseyebrow

Recommended Posts

After seeing the wonderful picture of 'geezer's' signed shirt , I thought that we must all between us have some collection of Chelsea memorabilia. I have as I'm sure a lot of you , programme's and ticket stubs and shirts tucked away (most of mine are at the mothers house) anyway I'm going to start it off with my most treasured.

Don't. Just don't. :sadwalk:

 

When I was about 12 or 13 I was laid up with tonsillitis. Stuck in my bedroom, surrounded by Chelsea posters and having little else to do I wrote to Chelsea FC, explained I was a fan and was poorly and asked if they could possibly get the lads to autograph the enclosed piece of paper and return it in the SAE provided.

 

About a week later, I got a reply.

 

The same piece of paper was returned to me...  with the signatures of Ray Wilkins, Ron Harris, Garry Stanley, Micky Droy, Ian Britton, John Sparrow, Tommy Langley, Peter Bonetti, Gary Locke, Clive Walker and others, I forget who else now.

 

So why am I so upset? Because I ruddy well lost that precious piece of paper in a house move some years back, that's why!

Brilliant keepsake Carloseyebrow

Aside from the shirt signed by the Champions League winners I also have one shirt signed by the Premiership winners for 2004/05, one goalkeeper shirt signed by Peter Bonetti and a 70's replica shirt signed by Ron Harris and Peter Bonetti. All are framed and have pride of place in various places in my house. 

I also managed to get a shirt signed by most players in the 2005/06 season for my daughters 18th birthday (with her name printed on the back) and I also had a birthday card signed by many players past and present. This included Roy Bentley, Ron Harris, JT and Dennis Wise but most poignantly of all it was also signed by the late great Peter Osgood just a couple of weeks before his untimely death. So whilst it was a great present for my daughter it was tinged with a lot of sadness because of Ossie.

Signed individual photographs include SuperFrank, Gianfranco Zola, Joe Cole Juliano Belletti, Alex, Arjen Robben, Geremi, Carlo Cudicini, Deco and Sheva.

But probably my most treasured possession is a limited edition painting of Ossie which he signed when me and my daughter met him in the club shop. Whereas I had met him many times it was the first time Stacy had actually met him so it was a very. very special moment for both of us.

Got a players club tie from the Athens CWC final. He was a squad member and in the reserves and used to lodge with us.

And my official supporters club membership card from 1981. I was member no 8. Not so many fans in those days, sat on the benches, think it was 50p to transfer from the shed but not certain

I will keep the story short , but the crowd that done the demolition work on the West Stand , my old man knew. It still wasn't as easy as just asking for it , I don't know the full details , but he had to do a hell of a lot of work for them in return for it. There were quite a few people after it and I'm sure the hours given in work outweighed the actual monetary value. It was given to me on Christmas day , and will be given to one of my girls when I go and so on. 

 

Maybe in a couple of hundred years or so , my great great great great grandchildren will be on antiques roadshow , and they will tell the story of how the family happened about this wonderful heirloom. Of how great great great great grandad Carloseyebrow loved it so. To then look hopefully at the valuer and hear 'do you know how much this is worth ? f**k all'.

 

And great great great great grandad Carloseyebrow , pissed himself laughing in his grave !

Splendid seat, Carloseyebrow. 

 

My collection is rather meagre, bits and bobs picked up over the years and nothing of great value. I've a ton of vintage programmes with a few signatures scattered about them, my bedroom walls are adorned with old posters along the lines of this one I nabbed:

I have the 2008/09 kit signed by the bulk of the squad, which I won in a competition. I intended to get it framed initially, but decided against it as the mere sight of the thing brings up painful memories of it's Moscow debut. It's tucked away at the back of my closet for that very reason.
