    If anyone is interested, I have a match worn, autographed (Steven Naismith), Scotland jersey. This is a 2005-2007, light blue Diadora jersey. I would like to trade it for Glasgow Rangers, or possibly other British clubs, programmes of U.S / Canadian tour games from the 1950's, 60's, 70's or 80's.

    I collect new and old watches I have about 250 apx. Usually I change watches 2 to three times a day.

    I used to wear a regular watchs when I was not going any where. But now my knock around watches are Rado's or Fortis.

    I am old school old guy when I go out I still wear cuff links good watches and expensive suits.

    I meet some soon to be new family members. My kids can't seem to stay married. So we lose some old family and get new ones :) I have been married to the same women for almost 44 years.

    Any way my oldest introduced us to his soon to be married girl friends mother and brother. We had dinner over his house. Her brother is a nice kid and has helped my son and his sister to make a bed room a beautiful baby's room for my new grand daughter expecting her at the end of March.

    He happens to be Russian he noticed my watch I had on. I told him that was one of the watches Yuri Gagarin wore when he went into space. Then he really kept looking at it.

    At the end of the night I said goodbye to him and took off my watch and gave it to him. He is now my new best friend :).

    I'm an impulse collector-if I happen to see something at the right price that intrigues me I'll bite. Examples:
    Maradona (Napoli) figurine
    Raul figurine
    Real Madrid vs. Celtic program from the 1960s
    Kurt Rambis Lime Crush, "Thanks L.A. fans" can of soda
    1986, 200 Pesos Mexican Coin (World Cup)
    "End Of An Era" 2000 Wembley Pin
    2002 World Cup Pin
    MISL Cards (Zunga, Tatu, Branco, etc.)
    MetroStars "stuff" (I've never really let go."
    1998 World Cup program (Spanish edition)

    Things I wish I still had:

    Spaulding Pele outdoor soccer ball: This was a ball we played with that came with a Pele with Cosmos action poster. It was made of hard rubber, which kept the ball on the ground ;)

    Franz Beckenbauer, Soccer Power: This was a skills book that he put out during his Cosmos days that I had as a kid.

    1978 World Cup Program

    My collection of Soccer Corner magazines-I had this issue (sigh..)

    I collect soccer boobleheads for all outdoor soccer leagues in the US. (I'd collect indoor to if there weren't so darn many of them that my wife would have a heart attack with that many in the house!) I also collect personally obtained autographs of players and random soccer collectibles. (Fore example, the nesting dolls for the 91ers and stuff like that.)

    I just noticed this you said you had Franz's book Soccer Power. I have it in German when it first came out. I have it in English misplaced it. Then I found it on Amazon.

    The book is very out dated. But it is a great read on how the game was played tacticly in the early 80s.

    It is a great book. If your interested in our game.

    Scarfs. When ever i go abroad i try to get few of them. I prefer the bit obscure ones and smaller teams if possible.
    I also usually buy some random football related memoribilia like a nice t-shirt or a coffee cup or something of that nature as a memory of the trip.
    If i go to a game while abroad i save the ticket and the match day programme.

    I also collect football books (and books in general).
