Title Aldershot Football Association blazer badge
Nationality British
Period 1897-98
Price £135.00

This cloth badge (8.5 x 11 cms) is quite uncommon, as far as football memorabilia goes, and almost qualifies as militaria by virtue of Aldershot being such a big army base. It appears to be mainly of wool with the embroidery in silk.

The condition is pretty good for its age, with the colour obviously a bit muted and the whole a little soiled with age.

testimonials

[From a vendor, rather than a buyer]

I'm delighted that you are happy with the badge and I hope you can sell it to someone who will value owning it.

I tried to sell it on eBay but they won't accept Nazi items. I then contacted several dealers via a Google search who mostly offered me 40-50 after some haggling. Most of the other dealers tried to conceal its true value in their replies and also lacked manners which doesn't inspire confidence.

Ultimately it's about trust. I should think that most prospective sellers have done their own research and therefore know roughly what their item is worth. You were the only dealer who had the integrity to concede that my valuation was approximately correct and I respect your comment that you can't offer this as you need to make a profit. Your honest approach is greatly appreciated and I felt comfortable taking the risk in sending it to you.

Thank you for a smooth transaction
