22 Jul Introducing First Football Shirts
Its with great excitement that we are at the stage of showcasing our brand-new website selling football shirts from all era’s.
For me the journey to this point started a long time ago, I have always since a young age been interested in sports; growing up in a small village in East Sussex with a big garden, sport of all kinds was always the choice for me and my older brother.
My dad also played football for Brighton reserves in the 1976-1977 season and my grandad worked at The Goldstone on The Lotto for many years during the 1970s and 1980s, so you could say Brighton and Hove Albion is in our blood.
One of my worst childhood memories was going to Wembley in 1991 and watching us lose to Notts County, in the Division 2 Play Off Final. I remember the feeling of being really excited walking/running up Wembley way on the way to the iconic stadium and then getting into the ground and being so high, the players looked like matchsticks, it wasn’t to be in 1991 and it took over 25 years later for us to finally achieve the pinnacle of the Premiership.
Fast forward to more recent years, I have settled in Sheffield and have 3 kids, but my affinity for sport and Brighton has not waned. I have been building my collection of Brighton and Hove Albion shirts as you can see from the picture above. For me these are to keep and cherish for myself and my family to keep the Brighton spirit alive now that we are becoming a Premier League regular (just about!).
In terms of First Football Shirts, the model was simple to sell shirts that people love or that resonate with early childhood or memories or glory days (for their specific clubs). Its combining my love for sports and building on a growing love for iconic shirts. We also want to build our collection of kids vintage shirts, so that kids from the twenty first century can enjoy some old iconic shirts too.
I started collecting and selling vintage classic football shirts three years ago, so far I have sold over 4000 shirts from the 1960s to the present day on platforms like ebay, facebook and depop.
I like many others love the iconic shirts from the 1980s to mid 1990s when Adidas, Umbro, Lotto, Bukta (to name a few) produced some amazing shirt designs. I especially love the 90s Italian Serie A shirts, which have all aged amazingly well. Teams like AC Milan, Lazio, Parma, Sampdoria, Inter Milan didn’t have a bad shirt design in that era.
I pride myself on our reputation, to me that is paramount to any successful business and am open to any feedback our fans may have. We enter an exciting period with the new website and more stock coming on daily. If we don’t have the shirts you want, please request them as per our page and we will do our best to find the shirts you want.
Hope you enjoy our shirts and our 10% discount code will last throughout July and August – Newbie2020.
