Chelsea Signed Football Shirts
Signed Chelsea shirts present excellent gifts for die hard Chelsea fans. It is not always practical to get the autograph of your favourite Chelsea player yourself. Many signed Chelsea shirts are framed and accompanied with a certificate of authenticity so you can be sure your idol really did sign it.
Signed football shirts should be considered an investment and their initial purchase price will always be much higher than a non-signed replica shirt. Often, the best choice of signed shirts are popular players who have established themselves at the club in the past or at present. So, current players such as Terry, Lampard and Drogba are good selections.
Most signed Chelsea shirts are presented smartly in a frame with a plaque and certificate of authenticity typically signed by a superior officer at the company selling the item or reliable witness to the signing session. You can sometimes get much better deals by buying unframed signed shirts and framing it yourself.
Be careful if purchasing on marketplaces such as eBay. Whilst the vast majority of these will be genuine, you should be on guard of suspicious listings where the seller may have just signed the shirt themselves. You will sometimes get shirts that have been signed by the players after a game.
It is often not possible to get a certificate of authenticity for these so you will just need to trust the seller (check their reputation and past track record on eBay).
