This is more an update on my trophy collecting experience rather than a full on blog. I'll also be featuring new trophies that I have newly acquired or will be putting up for sale here before they appear on the main site, so watch this space! All comments are welcome...

Came across an old article (Sept 2009) in the Daily Mail during my recent online travels. It's based on a Sky Sports interview with Chelsea's John Terry at his home, mainly Terry still crying about his penalty miss in Moscow. More interestingly it's quite a private museum Terry has got there, which includes replicas of the FA Premier League, FA Cup and Carling Cup trophies, and of course the few medals he's won. I wonder where he sourced them?! If they're official replicas, which they probably are, they would certainly have burnt a pretty big hole in his pocket....
Good job UEFA they don't award medals for clubs knocked out at the semi-finals stage. If they did he'd have to build an extension.

John Terry, Replica Trophies

I recently acquired another FIFA World Cup trophy for my own collection. I imported this one from Germany and it's probably the best replica of the lot so far. Genuinely full 1:1 size (unlike others which are slightly short of full size) it's a cracking replica. The only draw back is that it has to be handled with kid gloves as it's made from a type of gypsum, meaning it will chip, crack or mark very easily. One for the glass cabinet! I will add a full set of pictures to the site soon.

I finally got around to taking a full set of pictures of the Sam Maguire Cup replica. I'll be adding the full set to the site in due course but here's a preview for now:

I now have a Premier League Silver Plate Trophy available for sale - the trophy is 12 ½ inches high and comes with red or blue ribbons. It's a beautiful, solid gleaming replica and at 12 ½ inches is the perfect show piece size. Available now in the For Sale section.
