Over the next 8 to 16 weeks I will be adding some new replicas to the site. These will be a mix of replicas from my own collection and also some replicas that will be available for sale. See the list below. I also hope to change the site around a bit and re-photograph some of the trophies to show them off in a better light. All depends on my spare time!

These Dutch fans showed some rather impressive improvisation in making thir own replica European Championship trophy. Although the shape is a bit bloated and the finer details added in felt marker (!), it was nonetheless a valiant effort. Pity the Dutch team couldn't match that effort on the pitch!
