Whether you’re a collector, or just curious to find out more about your old football memorabilia, The National Football Collection (NFC) will be attending the museum on a regular basis to value, advise and acquire your football related and sporting items. An item that you own could even find its way to being displayed at the museum for all visitors to see.
The service the NFC offers is unique; not only will funds be available on the day to purchase items brought in for valuation, but a representative from one of the UK’s leading Specialist Memorabilia Auctioneers will also be in attendance to provide an option to consign to auction.
The National Football Collection is the brainchild of Neville Evans, a passionate fan of the beautiful game, who supports many football projects, as well as helping families of retired footballers. His collection forms an important part of the museum’s displays.
Some of the objects currently on display from Mr Evans’ extensive collection include The 1930 World Cup Final Match ball, Pele’s shirt from the 1958 World Cup tournament and original Spitting Image puppets of Eric Cantona and Paul Gascoigne.
Mr Evans said “I have always been an enthusiastic and strong supporter of the National Football Museum and have assisted on numerous occasions with their displays whether in-house or abroad. All the items within the NFC are available to the museum for display. I firmly believe that this exciting new Partnership will be of great benefit to all concerned.”
Mr Evans continued “As a charity the museum has limited funds to attract and purchase new exhibits. I hope this new partnership will assist it in obtaining new and exciting objects.”
Kevin Moore, Director of the National Football Museum said “We are extremely pleased to be working in partnership with The National Football Collection. Neville Evans is a great supporter of the museum and we are looking forward to this new phase in our relationship.”
