So obviously I'm as noted as everyone else and looking for a project so came across pictures of a memorabilia shelf and going to build one in whats soon going to be my games room (awaiting PP from wife).
Was going to put flag from first game in new stadium, programmes I have like first CL game at WHL, signed programme from spurs 3 pool 3 in 1998, programme from league cup final win versus Chelsea, some Corinthian Prostar players like ardiles and few other bits.

Any of you got any good memorabilia? Anything you would add to it?

Great question.

In my house I have one room that is decorated as I wish- the downstairs bathroom. It has signed pictures of Greaves, the 61 double winning squad- the 62 cup final team, Harry Kane (when he was very young), Ossie Ardiles and a brilliant picture of Gazza and Paul Walsh. I then have an unsigned bit of artwork with Kane and Alli on it. All of them look brilliant, but what I really want is pictures of some if the less appreciated players that I have enjoyed watching over the years.

I have a Justin Edinburgh signed programme that I want to frame - I always liked that he gave 100% even though he wasn't great- I will add that at some point.

I most want signed pictures of: Michael Dawson (one of my all time favourite players who kept stepping up his game as if it was just to piss off our unsupportive fans), Tom Huddlestone, Popescu, Andy Reid - those kind of players. Obviously I need to add Ginola, Hoddle and Waddle too.

That's a cracking idea re the under appreciated players. Always had a soft spot for ruel fox and rebrov so wanted to get some bits of them. Worst thing I ever did was give away my navy away jersey with rebrov on the back - would love to have that on the wall on future.

Sounds like we're from a slightly different generation with who is on your wall but its a cracker though with 61 team especially.

I know a lot of this is boredom but least il have something decent when this is all over and will give my 2 young girls something to see regularly to hopefully get them more into it.

We may not be from a different generation. I am 40, but started collecting spurs bits as a kid. My dad influenced my love of the 60s team.

Plus, the teams if the 90s were largely poor.

I could never go to a game when i was a kid, not living anywhere near London. So for years from about 12 my grandparents bought me a subscription and i got every home match programme for 4 or so years in the 90's which was a thing you could do. Fuck knows where they are, either in my parents attic or as i suspect, thrown in a bin when i was 16 and needed the drawer space for gravity jeans and studded belts.

I've got all our double winning programmes, home and away, including 'friendlies' - 1960/61.

I've also got original tickets for every cup final we've played in since 1961 apart from two, both rare as rocking horse shit, if there's one out there........

1971 Torino v Spurs - Anglo Italian tournament, 1st leg.

1972 Wolves v Spurs - EUFA cup final, 1st leg.

Today I received a signed photo of Michael Dawson, in the black and yellow puma kit. Cost me about 5 euros. Chuffed- shame he didn't have a stupid grin on his face in the picture.

At my parents house they have a whole room dedicated to Spurs. We call it the shrine.

It has a wide variety of memorabilia in there; a match worn Robbie Keane boot (that I caught away v Wolves), Sandro match worn shirt, poster stolen from our first Champions League match away v Young Boys, a load of posters and artwork, various shirts and then our two most treasured pieces: a chair from the old boardroom at White Hart Lane and a Block sign from White Hart Lane that we managed to 'borrow' from the last ever game there.

We're always looking for new and interesting stuff and have never paid more than £100 for anything.

I have a pile of programmes going back to the 1950's, including European and FA Cup finals. A limited edition blue vinyl of the 1981 FA Cup final song, signed by Burkinshaw, Roberts and Miller.

Most recently met Ledley and got a signed photo and won a silent auction for a framed and signed montage of Stevie P, which hangs in the bedroom :)
