memorabilia n. pl. objects kept or collected because of their associations with memorable people or events

Not satisfied with the normal memorabilia of matchday programmes from every tie on my journey to Wembley, I spent some of my son's inheritance on Cardiff City and Portsmouth FA Cup Final 2008 shirts, and framed them alongside the ticket stub and programme. Here is a photo of the end result:

My journey of course started at Chertsey Town, and as an extra bonus, my good lady wife treated me to this suitably embossed Chertsey Town shirt for my birthday:

One slight problem though; I think I need a bigger home to display both pieces of memorabilia!
