Football fans could be sitting on a secret treasure trove after a new study named the most valuable collectables of all time.
From classic replica shirts to sticker albums and other football memorabilia, fans could be sitting on a goldmine without knowing it.
New research fromNetVoucherCodes.co.ukhas identified exactly which football-related keepsakes have the most value in 2020.
Authentic and vintage shirts can sell for hundreds of pounds online, with footie fans eager to spend a small fortune to collect the memorabilia.
A David Beckham Manchester United home shirt from their treble-winning 1999 season is worth £199.99.
Sporting memorabilia has always been a popular pastime for Brits to collect and invest in, with retro football shirts being particularly popular. The 1979-80 season Liverpool Home shirt fetches £499 online, and the Arsenal 1991-92 Away shirt worth £425.
The prices of other rare items, including medals, sticker albums and programmes, have also shot up and they can sell for hundreds. The complete Panini France 98 World Cup sticker album is now worth well above its cost price at £200.
A spokesperson for NetVoucherCodes.co.uk said: “Football is one of the UK’s favourite sports and with the Premier League season restarting, the whole country will be tuning back in.
“The upcoming matches are to be played behind closed doors, so there’ll be no new programmes to collect, but Brits may have some of the most sought-after programmes from the last few decades hiding in storage.
“FA Cup Final programmes are always high value, as well as programmes that were printed for a player’s, or manager’s, first or last match.
“It’s especially interesting to see which items the public may have hidden at home already. The team atNetVoucherCodes.co.ukeven have a replica World Cup Brazuca football from the 2014 World Cup in their shed, and we’ve found it to be worth £190.
“It’s no surprise that TV shows like Antiques Road Show and Storage Hunters are popular, because Brits dream of finding something of value in the cellar or attic.”
