Your Favourite City Memorabilia

Postby Oohvonkyvonky » Tue Apr 17, 2012 7:45 pm

I've just dug out the a City - Birmingham programme from the 1956 FA Cup Final and "The Pink" Newspaper with all the pictures of Roy Paul lifting the cup etc! My Dad gave it me years ago and I'd not looked through it for a while!

What's your most prized city possession?

My City shirt given to me by Colin Bell

The badge has the Manchester crest with the words first division runners up 1976-77
They wore them the season after

Nice possessions guys!

Mine aren't as exciting, but I have programmes from City v Sunderland and City v Leeds back in 2002/2003. The S'land one is signed by Anelka, Mettomo and Foe, and the Leeds one is also signed by Anelka, but then Nigel Martyn, Harry Kewell, and a young spotty James Milner.

I also chipped a bit of paint off the old blue gates at Maine Road. Shittest claim to memorabilia ever, but I've kept it safe since 2003 ;) most of my memorabilia is in my mind, privileged to have seen the last ever City goal at Maine Road.

At moment, it's the original 7" single The Boys in Blue.
Trying to get a relative to give me their 1969 Cup Final LP audio commentary...no idea how much that is worth as don't think there's many knocking about.

I also have the silver away shirt from 2000/2001, the last relegation year, signed by the entire squad of that time. Top autographs like Goater, Dickov, Richard Dunne, etc. Not so good autographs like Ostenstadt et al.

I imagine it may be worth something soon, as a reminder of a time when watching football was truly shit :P

I've got an old Insurance drawing of maine road dating back to the 1940's

It's A1 size, Black ink on blue Linen, drew to scale when the Motor Insurance Co insured maine road.

It's been added onto when we built the Kippax roof & put the pylons up etc...

It's one of a kind, is framed & sit's in my hall way

My little bit of maine road history!!
