Show dedication to your favourite sports team with patch memorabilia
On eBay you can indulge your hobbies, past-times, and passions by shopping a range of vintage memorabilia products including AFL and Australian Rules Football cloth patches. Often carefully constructed and intricately embroidered with detailed and colourful emblems, these fascinating sporting collectibles come in a vast selection of shapes, sizes, and designs. Perfect for sports fans, they offer you the chance to continually show your dedication, thereby serving your team with pride.
A wide selection of vintage patches representing past and present Australian teams are available to buy on eBay. If you know exactly what you're after you can shop by era with products from five different decades in time available, some of which reach back as far as the 1950s. Alternatively, why not search by specific teams or clubs. Popular choices include the Carlton Blues, Richmond Tigers, and Sydney Swans, to name but a few.
Browsing the different designs is a fascinating process which is bound to evoke memories for sports fans. Perhaps you were present at that particular football game, think fondly back on a particular player, or just remember the emotional rollercoaster of that big win or loss. Some badges have also been produced as part of limited collections, such as a centenary celebration, so tracking down that specific, rare one is a victory in itself.
As with most second-hand collectibles, it's important to bear in mind with football memorabilia patches that while some will be well-presented and look almost as good as new, others may not be in the best condition. That said, for most buyers this is all part of the charm and only serves to add to the sense of sporting history that that particular patch represents.
Other items of memorabilia
As well as patches, you can browse other types of vintage Australian football and other sporting memorabilia on eBay. Pin badges, pennant flags, and spoons are also popular small collectible items which you can enjoy yourself or share with other fans.
