Details

This historic photo was signed by Sir Roger Bannister on September 19, 2017 in his Oxford home. It shows Sir Roger at the moment where he became the first man to run a mile in under four minutes. sir Roger has added the historic time next to his signature: 3 minutes 59.4 seconds. It was an incredible achievement, shaving two seconds off the previous world record for the mile. The event happened on May 6, 1954, during a meet between British AAA and Oxford University at Iffley Road Track in Oxford. It was watched by about 3,000 spectators. With winds up to 25 miles per hour before the event, Bannister had said twice that he favoured not running, and would conserve his energy to break the four-minute barrier at another meet. However, the winds dropped just before the race was scheduled to begin, and Bannister did run.

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.
