The Football Collectables Show With Gary Ashburn

To football supporters, a signed football shirt or ball inked with the signature of their heroes can often feel priceless! Owning a piece of footballing memorabilia is the ultimate way of expressing your love for a club or icon. The bigger or better the club or player, the more elusive the memorabilia!


Here at Hochanda, we share your passion for football collectables! On Sunday 21st February, Gary ‘Gazza’ Ashburn, dubbed ‘The Collectables Guru’, will be presenting The Football Collectables show on Hochanda at 6pm and 11pm. Gary will give viewers the chance to get their hands on memorabilia from some of the game’s all time greats! Items up for sale on the show include a multi-signed England shirt, a multi-signed Chelsea shirt, personally signed football boots by Tottenham Hotspur’s local boy Harry Kane and Chelsea’s Diego Costa respectively, and a framed, mounted and multi-signed team photo by Manchester City. Many of these items, plus more from the world of sport, film, television and music, are available to purchase on our website now!

Collecting football memorabilia is a long held tradition within the sport, and the rarest of collectables can fetch jaw-dropping prices. One of the highest prices paid for an item was the Brazil national team shirt worn by the legendary Pele during the 1970 FIFA World Cup Final, which Brazil went on to win. The shirt fetched £157,750 at an auction back in 2002. The previous record belonged to a bidder who paid £91,750 for Sir Geoff Hurst’s shirt worn during the 1966 World Cup Final. Hurst, of course, scored a hat-trick in the final against West Germany at Wembley in one of England’s greatest sporting hours.

So I’m challenging myself on 2 levels – 1) use up my stuff; and 2) try something new.

Well I had some empty candle jars so I thought this would be a good way to use up some stuff and try something new at the same time and this is what I came up with.

I am over the moon with the results as it’s the first time I’ve tried anything like this.

What I used: ·Empty candle jar ·Decoart white gesso ·Starlight paints ·Decoart metallic paints ·Imagination Crafts rice papers ·Imagination Crafts fabric glue ·Twine ·Raffia ·Hessian ·Ribbon ·Paper flowers and embellishments from craft box
