The Five Most Expensive Football Memorabilia On Planet Earth

Collect all the things!

There's a collector in each and everyone of us.

There are those who collect coins, or old bank notes, or stamps (remember it being a thing back in the 1990s?).

And for some of you out there, you like to collect football memorabilia and that's understandable, because football is one of the most popular sports on the planet.


But there are some collectibles out there that even if you have the money, you might not be able to add it to your collection.

We're not talking about the old school Manchester United posters or old issues of Kick! magazine; we are talking about these one-of-a-kind, super crazy expensive memorabilla:

#5 Alan Ball’s winner's medal

The world's most expensive medal.Valued at: £164,800 (RM880,000)
Everyone's saying that this year is England's year, and football is coming home. Well, the hype is understandable as England last won the world's greatest tournament back in 1966. When England won the title, Alan Ball became the youngest player to receive a winner's medal at the age of 21. In 2005, Ball put his medal up for auction and he managed to sell it for £164,800 (RM880,000).

#4 A replica of the Jules Rimet Trophy

Is it real or is it fake?
Valued at:
 £254,500 (RM1.3mil)
In case you didn't know, the Jules Rimet Trophy is the original trophy awarded to the winner of the world's greatest football tournament. One of these trophies were put on the auction block by FIFA back in 1997 and was eventually sold off for £254,500 (RM1.3mil) - almost ten times the reserve price. Because of the price, it was rumoured that it was a real Jules Rimet Trophy, but it was later analysed and proven to be a replica. 

#3 The FA Cup

A trophy for your collection.
Valued at: 
£478,400 (RM2.6mil)
The Football Association Challenge Cup -- now simply known as the FA Cup -- is the world's oldest football competition. Hence, it's no surprise that the original trophy would fetch a hefty sum. Only four of these trophies were made, and only one was sold. The FA Cup that was sold in 2005 was the oldest one made, and it fetched a cool £478,400 (RM2.6mil).

#2 Sheffield Football Club Rules, Regulations & Laws

Read the rules.
Valued at: 
£881,250 (RM4.7mil)
It may look like a very old, normal notebook with some scribbles on it, but mind you; it's the most important ever. This rule book was compiled by the Sheffield FC, currently the world's oldest active football club, and was sold in 1857 as a pamphlet to raise money for the club. In 2011, the rule book was auctioned off for £881,250 (RM4.7mil).

#1  Geoff Hurst’s England jersey

One pricey jersey.
Valued at: 
£2.3mil (RM12.3mil)
This England jersey from 1966 is arguably the most expensive football memorabilia in existence. When England defeated favourites West Germany in the 1966 tournament, football legend Geoff Hurst scored the winning goal. The jersey he wore in that match has become a sort of holy grail for collectors. It was first sold in an auction for £91,750 (RM490,000) in 2000, but it was later re-auctioned for a whopping £2.3mil (RM12.3mil)!


Unless you're a very rich person, it's safe to say that you'll never be able to purchase the football memorabilia we mentioned above.

But here's the good news: you don't have to be a gajillionaire to afford Carlsberg's football-themed merchandise.

Throughout the entire football tournament, the maker of probably the best beer in the world is giving football fans a chance to own their limited edition goodies.

If you call yourself a master collector, you could collect Carlsberg bottle cans or Pop cans to redeem limited edition Carlsberg football jerseys.

The jerseys come in the colours of six nations: England, Spain, Germany, Brazil, France and Portugal.


Now that you have your jersey on, you don't want your Carlsberg beer bottle to feel left out, do you?

When you buy any two buckets of Carlsberg beer at selected locations, you will get a free football jersey cooler sleeve.

Aren't they adorable?


Not only that, there are a host of other football-themed goodies for you to collect, such as umbrellas and limited edition can cooler sleeves.
