With soccer's share of great teams, superb athletes, exceptional events, and its recent rise in popularity State-side, the American market for Soccer memorabilia has a bright future.

Today American soccer collectors will spend up to $250 for a Freddy Adu signed ball and possibly up to $1,000 for a ball autographed by members of the 1999 U.S. Women’s World Cup winning team. Since the American market is still in its infancy though, American collectors would be wise to follow trends set across the pond.

Figures from Walker by Matthew CarterBy Sander Neijnens - Shirtnumbers

For the upcoming tournament Euro 2008, Adidas and Puma have introduced new shirt numbers. Some examples can be seen on www.footballshirtculture.com. In the Adidas numbers (e.g. Germany, Greece) we recognize the same basic forms as in the typeface Walker that was designed by Matthew Carter for the Walker Arts Center in Minneapolis.

But in the Adidas numbers all beginnings and endings of the strokes are rounded, which remind me of the sausage numbers that were introduced by Nike in 2000. As in the number 1 the flag is chopped of, it looks like a real Frankfurter.

Puma has renounced the numbers designed by Dalton Maag in 2006. When we look at the new numbers (e.g. Czech Republic), it appears that the strokes also have rounded beginnings and endings. Were they made by the same designer who's responsible for the Adidas numbers? Or can we conclude that there's a real sausage fashion? Or is this tournament sponsored by the international meat industry?
