Recent Soccer Pickups

Seems like this side of the board has been dead, so i will try and get it going again! Tough Puskas rookie to track down and incredibly rare Dr. Sarosi (from Malta... only a couple of known copies).

For those who do not know Sarosi, he is widely consider a top 10 pre-war soccer star and was ranked 60th European in the Player of the Century in the IFFHS' Century Elections.

Hi : Really nice pick-ups! I have the Puskas as well.
Although, since mine was not hand cut out as nice as your
I just asked SGC to encapsulate it as authentic.

The Sarosi is rare! Nice card. Grade doesn't matter very much.
Th Puskas is also rare! Again, nice pick-ups, Congrads!

Cool Ray... super cool.... love the Puskas... here is another cool one... the Sindelar rookie... Sindelar was ranked as Austria's best footballer of the twentieth century by the IFFHS, also ranking as the world's 22nd best. A top 3 pre-war soccer player and one who (many say) was killed by the Nazis due to his dissonance (refusing to play for the Germans)...

A substantially less significant Maradona.

My primary collecting interest is certain types of soccer memorabilia, albeit not cards.

This is my most recent acquisition which I took possession of last week. It is a large model of Real Madrid's Bernabeu Stadium. It took 4 years for the artist to complete and was previously on display at Real Madrid's museum from 2007 to 2015.

Wow... that stadium is amazing!! Holy cow!

how bid is it? Looks to take up most of that room.

The photo is probably slightly deceptive in that it is an inlet in a larger room. However, the stadium is fairly big - it is circa 1.7 metres by almost 1.5 metres in size.

There are circa 80,000 individual seats and, all-in-all, a nice item.

Wow... how did you get that from the museum? Are you located in Spain? Very nice piece!

The item was given back to its creator in late 2015, presumably because Real Madrid are remodelling their Bernabeu Stadium and now have a replica of what the stadium will look like by 2020 in their museum.

I was able to agree a private sale with its creator.

I am primarily located in London but my collection is all housed in Northern Ireland so I had to get the item over to Northern Ireland from Madrid. It was an expensive process !!

I am a collector primarily of high quality Real Madrid and Brazilian football memorabilia and, in particular, memorabilia relating to Belfast Celtic, my football team I support but that has not played since 1949.
