This 2006 Italy football shirt was personally signed by Andrea Pirlo in Ibiza on July 13, 2015. Pirlo is a legend of Italian football, having won the World Cup in 2006, six Serie A titles and two Champions League titles. His status as Italy's most creative player has earned him the nickname of "The Architect" as he is the creator of so many goals. This is a 2006 Italy shirt, of the style worn in the final, but with a fourth star added to the front to commemorate the country's fourth World Cup victory.
All our signed memorabilia is supplied with a Certificate of Authenticity signed by a company director. It features a numbered hologram that matches an identical hologram affixed to your product, and details of when and where the product was signed. Our company number and details are included on the certificate.
Signing photo Each certificate includes, where possible and in the vast majority of cases, a photo of the sportspeople or celebrity signing one of the product line at the relevant signing session. For logistical reasons it is impossible to photograph every product being signed, but showing that the sportsperson or celebrity was present and signing items is, we believe, the best way to demonstrate the legitimacy of your products.
Numbered security hologram Your certificate will come with a numbered security hologram, which will correspond to a matching, identically numbered hologram on your product. This ensures that the certificate can only be used to authenticate the item for which there is a corresponding number. If anyone attempts to remove either hologram it will destruct, so it is impossible to transfer the holograms to other items.

PACKAGING & FRAMING
Packaging options and shirt framing
As standard, your shirt will come in our smart vinyl packaging. However, you can choose to have it delivered in a presentation gift box, which not only looks great but can be used to store the shirt in the future. You might want to make your signed shirt look even more special by framing it, in which case you should consider our specialist framing service. Deluxe framing is offered in a black frame with either a gold or silver inlay with two photos of the sports star in action, plus a plaque stating who has signed the item.
After your purchase the item is sent straight to our framers where it is expertly mounted and framed to create a striking presentation. It will then be sent direct to you by the framers using a secure, trackable method of delivery. Most items are framed to order so please allow an extra 10 working days for delivery of framed items. Please contact us if you need your purchase by a certain date.
We accept Visa, MasterCard, Delta, and Maestro credit and debit cards. We also accept PayPal. All our payments are made on secure, encrypted servers, using SagePay. If you wish to purchase items by bank transfer then please contact us to arrange. This can be helpful if you are shopping from a country which has a high risk of fraud, in which case your credit card may be automatically declined.
What currencies can I pay in?
You have the option to view our prices in Australian Dollars, Euros and US Dollars but the prices shown are only a guide. All orders will be charged in Pounds Sterling as shown on your order confirmation, and converted at the rate determined by your card issuer. If you want to know exactly what rate they charge you will need to contact your card issuer.
How do I know your items are genuine?
Authenticity is everything to us, and obviously it's vitally important to you as a customer.
We've been in the signed memorabilia industry since 2002 and the foundation of our business is the strength of the relationships we have with players and agents. We've built these up slowly by treating people honestly and fairly, and we do the same with customers. We ONLY sell products with original autographs, that have come from official signing sessions. We never supply copies, prints or facsimile signatures Other companies might not be as strict. Read about our authenticity guarantee.
Is the item match worn?
No, matchworn memorabilia is usually much more expensive and not something we sell.
You know these aren't supposed to worn, right...? We buy a selection of sizes (depending on availability from the manufacturer at the time), but we might be able to find a specific size if you want.
Can I make my order anonymous?
Yes, if you like. Just email or call us and we can send the packing note separately or not at all.
What should I buy for my friend/husband/wife/nephew/cat?
Give us a call on +44 (0) 1392 877077 or chat with us via the live chat box, and we'll try to help you choose the best gift.
Are the football shirts you use official replicas?
Yes, we use the same shirts you would buy from a club shop. If the shirt is older (not in current production) we buy official "retro" replicas made by the authorised manufacturers only.
My order is a gift and I need it urgently. What can I do?
Please contact us and we will do our very best to help. We can usually ship overnight.
How do I know if an item is in stock?
On each product page it will state if an item is in stock or not. If the product you want to buy is out of stock or you can not find it then please use our contact form to tell us. We will let you know if and when it is back in stock, or if we are planning to do another signing with the sportsman you are interested in.
When I receive my item will the photo on the Certificate of Authenticity show the item being signed?
The photo will show the sportsman or celebrity signing one of the product line at the signing session listed on your certificate. For logistical reasons it is impossible to photograph every item being signed. Some of our items are authenticated by PSA/DNA or Beckett's, the leading authenticators in the United States. If this is the case this will be indicated on the product page and you will receive a COA issued by them.
Do you offer trade discounts?
Yes, if you are buying sufficient quantities we can offer trade discounts. Please read our wholesale page or contact us.
