Delcampe: a true collectors paradise !
If you are a collector
I strongly recommend that you take a look at Delcampe.
It is an international Buy & Sell Fixed Price and Auction website specifically designed for collectors.
Many thousands of collectables are listed and illustrated. I am sure you will find many items within your field of interests.
Take a look by clicking the Link above.
Registration is simple and FREE!! with hundreds of new members signing on every day. No costs to buyer!!

Listed below are collectable items relating to Sport.
All at fixed prices. I often sell interesting items via ebay. It may be in your interest to keep an eye on my ebay entries and or join my secure emailing list. For further details please click the
Site Map here or above.

The list will be updated on a regular basis with new items added and sold items removed.
The list should therefore be worth revisiting on a regular basis and/or entering on your favourites list.

To order simply mark and copy the item/s you wish to purchase and then paste them into an email. Send me your email. I will then prepare an invoice and email it back to you. As soon as I receive full payment by PayPal for UK and overseas customers. (UK customers may also pay by Cheque, Postal Order or Bank Credit Transfer) I will then post/ship your items.

I will endeavour to keep the list up to date but there may be the odd occasion where an item has already been sold and I have not had time to remove it.
(Please note I am a one man business and time is always at a premium)

If you wish to place an order or have any constructive suggestions that may improve this service please email me email

All prices are in GBP (Great Britain Pounds) Postage is extra.
