    But often it's more than just simple "supply and demand", though. Its about perceptions not supported by objective information. And maybe the pan-human need to identify with a tribe?

    To focus on football, objectively goalkeepers are the most important players on any team, as their errors are more important, but they are not glamorous so command lower fees and lower wages than strikers. Similarly their shirts are rarer (only 2 out of 20+ in a squad) but they are not so valuable.

    Another good example is "celebrity" autographs. Mark Hamill (Luke Skywalker) recently said he is stopping signing stuff as there are so many forgeries around, or if he does will personalise them so they are less tradable and more verifiable.

    I was in an auction for a shirt from the world cup 1970 went to my limit of 18k then rang my boss to ask to borrow more took my bids to in excess of 22k and this particular shirt ended up going for well over 28k.

    Its a part of history that no one else has for me personally , I own several shirts that I have paid very strong money for and hang in pride of place at my house 1 also hangs in the Centre Spot on loan to the club.

    Seems you may have something there Kirton ..... 5 days after auction and no feedback left for any sort of payment !

    I have seen it done before where a friend bids on an item to bump the price up then doesn't need to pay.

    As a friend (so to speak), you're not inviting any undesirables to set about casing your gaf are you? I'm buggered if I'd pronounce to the world what I had of value hanging about the place!

    This has been a public service anouncement.

    With Exeweb not having any detail on people's addresses, unless you actually know who Ramone is, knowing what he has in his house makes no difference.

    Good point, but he goes to the match with friends doesnt he? And I'm sure many on here know who he really is? I certainly have no clue about him, but I did recently establish he's not really called ramone
