The (ab)use of the pun in the titles of sports books: The use of puns in the titles of sports books, particularly biographies, is nothing new. 1951 gave us Plum Warner’s “Long Innings” and Jim Laker’s “Spinning Round The World”, and so a new tradition was established. Ever since these early attempts at punnery any […]

Two huge cricket records at the Oval smashed by two different cricketers and best friends in the last Test match before one of them retires from international cricket…it reads like a plot of a corny cricket novel. But, as we all know, James Anderson and Alastair Cook made it happen in the latest Test match, […]

Sportspages’ New Stock catalogue is packed with rare items and sports memorabilia, detailing iconic and extraordinary sports events. We were spoilt for choice when we tried to choose a few to highlight. In the end we plumped for three extraordinary football matches.

Are you interested in selling sports memorabilia, including old cricket books, golf books, football and rugby books? You may have built up a special collection over many years and have now decided to diversify in some way. You may have just discovered a great uncle’s amazing collection of rugby programmes or tennis books languishing in an attic. We are always interested in anyone selling sports memorabilia and we are always keen to buy good quality sports books and memorabilia. We pay top prices for the right sort of material, but the condition needs to be good and the item of a significant rarity to obtain these prices. While we are keen to offer a good price for any item, all vendors should be aware that we do, of course, buy to re-sell at a profit.
Do not be afraid to approach us if you are only looking to sell sports books and sports memorabilia in small quantities or number. We buy any amount of sports books and related material from the largest libraries or collections to the tiniest, single pamphlet. Quality is the key ingredient for us: the rarity of the items; their condition and whether they fill a key gap in our extensive stock. There are a great many books that we don’t want – that we already have or hold little re-sale value for us – so please do not be offended if we decline to make any sort of offer. In these cases, we are always happy to suggest others ways and channels that you may want to look at for selling sports memorabilia.
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.
We offer free valuation of items over the telephone, but for a more accurate appraisal
please take a photograph of your item and send it via email as a jpeg file. Once we can
gauge condition etc., we are able to make a more realistic valuation. So, the more details
concerning provenance and condition that you can supply, the better able we are to give you a pinpoint valuation.
