King Charles III and Cricket

15th September 2022

We have been contemplating the huge job in front of King Charles III. We reminded ourselves what an able man he has shown himself to be over the years. Us being us, we looked to sport for the clues. We all know what a great polo player and general equestrian he was. We’ve seen him […]

England’s Lionesses in the Women’s Euros 2022: How far women’s football has come!

21st July 2022

How proud would these pioneers of women’s football from 1918 be to see England’s Lionesses perform in the Women’s Euros 2022?!

About Us – the Home for Sports Books and Memorabilia

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.
