We are back from the National Sport Collector's Convention: did you see our booth?
Follow us on Instagram @jonenglishsportsantiques to see some photos from the event!
My name is Jon English; welcome to my vintage sports web site.
I have been an athlete and loved sports all my life. I remember my dad bringing home a new football or glove, and I would love the smell of the new leather, or the feel of my uniforms or a new pair of athletic shoes. In my twenties, I started collecting sports items--things I could pick up and play with. I guess I am just an American "sports picker." I love items from old sporting goods stores, things I remember from when I was a kid. My collection has grown over the years, and now it's time for me to start sharing it with others.
I am still out picking, still enjoying the thrill of the hunt, so check back often, as new items will be appearing regularly. If you have things like you see on my web site and want to sell them, please email me; I am always interested in knowing where there might be sports treasures hidden away.
I hope you enjoy our site--it's taken some hard work by some dedicated people to bring this to life.
And remember one thing: everyone needs to have a hobby--it brings passion to life.
