About Arsenal Signed Shirts
Arsenal Football Club is one of the oldest and most prestigious clubs in the English Premier League. Founded as Dial Square by London ammunition workers in 1886, the team is one of the most successful in history, with a trophy cabinet containing 12 league titles, ten FA Cups, two League Cups, 12 Charity Shields, a European Cup Winners' Cup and an Inter-Cities Fairs Cup.
Famed for its red and white strip, the club has been home to many of football's greatest players over the years, including Thierry Henry, Ian Wright, Dennis Bergkamp, Marc Overmars, Tony Adams, Pat Jennings and Charlie George.
Arsenal, nicknamed 'The Gunners', also holds the distinction of being the club with the longest unbroken run in the top flight of English football ? from 1919 to present.
In addition to the club's successes on the pitch, Arsenal has become a known name on both the big and the small screen, thanks to it being referenced in movies such as The Arsenal Stadium Mystery (1939), Fever Pitch (1995) and The Full Monty (1997). The club's celebrity fans include Prince Harry, George Clooney, Matt Damon, Mo Farah and Idris Elba.
A signed Arsenal shirt can be a real collector's item. Over the past few decades, the designs and material of Arsenal shirts have changed greatly and some pieces are now incredibly rare and valuable.
Whether you are buying a signed shirt as an investment for the future or merely as something which brings back memories, it pays to know a little about them and what to expect. In particular, look out for shirts which come with Certificates of Authenticity.
