Signed Jersey from mid 90's

Postby acgriffin » Thu Jan 15, 2015 3:38 pm

Hi All,

Last weekend while cleaning out my attic I came across a box from my childhood, where I found the jersey that was given to me by my mother, who was related to a player on the team at the time.
I am not a big GAA person and not even living in Offaly, but I have been told that this could be worth a few euro's. Does anybody know where would be the best place to find a buyer for this. Some of the players that signed it are: Johnny Pilkington, Johnny Dooley, Michael Duignan, Joe Errity, Tom Donoghue, Stephen Byrne, Gary Hanniffy & some more.

All suggestions welcome..

i'd say its from the 1998 hurling winning team, should get a few bob for it, frist team to win the all ireland through the back door, hold on to it could be worth more in a few years time, have a hurl myself with the 94 winning side.

That's an item to be treasured for people of a certain age like myself!!. Maybe an Offaly based charity, would be interested, problem is younger people mightn't know some of the players mentioned. What about Ger Loughnane? Joke!

Surely when players sign these things, they do it wishing it to be a memento for a fan, rather than a means for someone to make a few bob out of it?

I have a framed signed jersey from the 1998 League Winning team.It used to belong to a former Taoiseach (and not the one you'd assume it was either)
