The scamonebay website made a guide about buying signed shirts on Ebay which can help you buy the real deal.  

Heres a few facts to follow when buying a signed shirt.They are easy to spot and there are some easy rules to follow when buying a signed shirt.

1. Don't buy of eBay con men (obviously but what are the tell tale signs?)

2. Make sure they can show you photo's of the players signing the shirt

3. Don’t buy off anyone using "private auctions" were you can't see the other bidders identities - this helps them fraud you in two ways, first they can push the price up artificially and secondly its stops quality operators from contacting you and letting you know that its a fake.

4. Don’t buy from anyone that hides their feedback - WHY would a reputable dealer do that - a real dealer’s feedback is his pride and joy and they would NEVER hide it. IGNORE Certificates of Authenticity - they mean nothing and we only make them up ourselves on the computer - the only CoA that is worth anything is if it is on official club paper.

In the famous year of 1966, Adidas partnered with Le Coq Sportif. The partnership was based on complementary strengths.

Le Coq Sportif, the textile specialist introduced the German company to the world of French athletes, while brought its Leather skills and International presence to the table.

It was the best of both worlds.....

It would seem these days that every collector worth his salt has got a match worn Maradona shirt proudly displayed on his website.By Chris Forshaw

It would seem these days that every collector worth his salt has got a match worn Maradona shirt proudly displayed on his website. That might not seem strange in itself but the very fact that there are so many Maradona shirts described as match worn does beg the question.....Are they all genuine?

I have no doubts that during his playing career in Europe and, indeed, Argentina opposition players all desperately vied for the shirt swap with Diego at the end of 90 minutes of being dragged all over the park. Those players, on the whole, were not as ridiculously rewarded financially as today’s stars, which is reflected in the amount of former players who end up selling their treasured items.

It would be interesting listening to the kitmen of Maradona’s various clubs in order to ascertain just how many shirts he went through a season. Did he swap shirts every game requiring a new shirt each match?

The past few days a lot of Manchester city fans visited this site to take a look at the 1969 F.A. Cup Final shirt which was sold at Bonhams auction house.

Tennis shoes signaled the beginning of production, followed by models for basketball, volleyball, athletics and football.

Sports clothing was the company’s next venture. In the first 10 years, Lotto focused on the Italian market and became a product leader in tennis.
