We love discovering sports memorabilia with great stories. Recently we acquired one of Just Fontaine’s commemorative watches, which fills exactly that brief. The wristwatch is inscribed to dial “Just Fontaine. World Record 13 goals 1958-1998”. Fontaine, French football legend, presented one of these watches to each of the twenty two members of the French 1958 […]

When we sent out our first New Stock Catalogue of the year, we realised it had been a while – too long! – since our last one in September. We reflected on the sporting legends we had lost just since September – way too many. We thought we’d like to make at least brief mention […]

SPORTSPAGES at www.sportspages.com is the only website of its kind offering thousands of sports books and items of sporting memorabilia on every sport. We inherited our name from the legendary sports bookshop in London, off the Charing Cross Road, which sadly closed in 2006. The original shop, Sportspages’ remit was to sell sports books, newspapers and fanzines on as broad a range of sports as possible. John Gaustad, the Sportspages’ shop’s founder, is said to have launched it in 1985 after he was unable to find any sports books about his beloved All Blacks in London.
We took over the Sportspages name in 2007 with the same sense of aspiration to show case as broad and as deep a range of sports books and sports memorabilia as possible. We certainly have the All Blacks covered in honour of John Gaustad and so many of our customers too.
The present Sportspages is based in Farnham and run by Magnus Bowles, who has an encyclopaedic knowledge of sports history and is always on the hunt for another rare sports book or piece of sports memorabilia. We have an extremely wide selection of Wisden Cricketers’ Almanacks, including many of the rarest editions. As well as cricket, football and rugby, we stock items on a huge range of other sports too: golf, boxing, tennis, winter sports, all Olympic sports, curling, croquet and more.
Our stock of sports books and sports memorabilia is constantly being updated so if you can’t find what you’re looking for on www.sportspages.com, it’s well worth calling us to see if we have it or can trace it for you.
We issue regular themed and New Stock e-Catalogues encompassing all sports. To receive these, register your name, email address and areas of interest on our Homepage.
We are also always interested in buying new stock, so please get in touch if you have items to sell, whether it’s a single item or a complete collection. We are happy to offer quotations over the phone but it’s always helpful to provide information via email with a picture if possible. We look forward to hearing from you.
Please note – we rarely purchase sports equipment (balls, shirts, gloves, boots etc.), whether signed or not; similarly, we are not normally interested in large framed items.
