What's your most treasured Hearts possession?

Recommended Posts

I’ve got a few wee bits and bobs I wouldn’t part with but oddly the bit I’m proudest of is my totally worthless share certificate from when Vlad left us totally in the shit and it looked doomed. Loads of us bought them, and most knew they were utterly worthless and money that would never be seen again. A reminder of supporting the club when it needed it most. Not that my girlfriend saw it that way when she discovered I’d given my bank account a kicking that left me skint for a month.

Signed 2012 cup final program.

 

Have a signed ball from around 97/98. It's in pretty bad nick though. Can't bring myself to throw it out though even though the wife keeps trying.

I've got Robbie's shirt from 2006 final framed on the wall. 

 

But my 98 cup final ticket and programme are probably the prized-possessions. 

 

And I got a lovely maroon, white and navy "girondins de bordeaux" scarf which I'm quite attached to.

I’ve got 3 shirts signed by the full squads of different years, although sadly it’s all squads of the last few years and there aren’t many players we’ve had that recently whose signature I’m delighted to have 😂

 

Got loads of wee photos from hospitality in the Gorgie that I’ve had signed by any players and staff who’ve been in.

 

My favourite is my framed 2012 cup final piece, which has the programme, a picture of rudi shooshing the vermin, signed by the man himself, and another of Danny Grainger sliding after his pen. Massive frame that the wife has made me put in the bathroom! 
 

Second favourite is probably my cup final ticket, which is still in perfect nick and hopefully when I’m ancient will be a cool wee thing to pass on.

This is almost the same as my memorabilia. I have a signed 2015 strip and an old Ajax/Texaco Cup strip signed by the 2017 squad. I was in corporate hospitality in 2012 and have my programme, laminate badges and team sheet (which was handed to me by Gary Mackay)

Robbo’s shirt he wore at Neil Berry’s testimonial against Lyon

 

Hi, 

 

Do you have a photograph of this please.

 

I have seen 2 different versions of embroidery on these shirts and would love to see what is on your one.

A pin badge my grandfather wore to the 1956 Scottish Cup Final. 

 

A signed menu from a meal I had with Wallace Mercer.  I'd also had a meal with him when I was just a wee boy, but he wasn't 'famous' then!

 

A Christmas card from Robbo.

 

Photos with Wallace Mercer, Robbo, JC and Craig Levein in Munich.

 

An invite to Jim Cruickshank's birthday party in his house.

You should be absolutely proud of that, you legend. 😎

 

I'm proud of mine too. 😊

I have my commemorative FOH shirt with all our names on it plus two bricks from the old stand that my nephew brought over for me (special delivery as he is a pilot with B.A. 👍). Anyone have any suggestions what to do/ how to display them? They are just sitting in the garage gathering dust and I fear when I go tits up my kids will just throw them out not knowing their significance to me😂

£1m raised in about a month. We all knew we would have no financial return but it was an astonishing response to an appeal by a discredited regime. Without that cash input I doubt we would have survived that season. But it kept us going until Ann and FOH were in a position to save us. Alex Mackay's advice not to participate could, if listened to, have killed the club.

 2012 cup final ticket? Fully expect in 25 years that'll be one of those "everyone says they were there" matches so it's nice to have that proof

Don't remember seeing the badge in the first one. The castle in it is similar to that on the Royal High School badge. The Union Jack on the second will offend a few on here.

Hearts Daft

I have a 1970/71 signed match ball with all players signatures delivered to my house by Donald Ford and Wilson Wood. Never blown up this ball. Lots of greats signed it such as the aforementioned Donald Ford, plus Alan Anderson, Jim Cruikshank's and all from that era. My big sister who had moved to London and contacted HMFC to advise them I was Heart's Daft and what could they do to make my day. They told her to send in a cheque for x amount and the above duly happened.

I also have a 1956 Scottish cup winners silk tie and scarf given to me by a long deceased Aunt.

I offered all of the above to the Hearts Museum and they were happy to take them, but advised if they no longer require them, I would not get them returned. Disappointing to say the least!

Thanks!  That is maybe something I could make myself too.

Just emailed the photo of Robbo’s shirt to you.

My son caddied for Robbo at a charity golf event at Liberton a few years ago.

Robbo shot a scratch 65 and won - he gave my son the shirt and £50!

Glad Robbo was so cool to your son.

01st >> My Dads Hearts scarf , sadly passed away in 1974 ❤️

Wallace Mercer signed program from Dukla Prague in 86 ( well more like a pamphlet )

Hearts scarf that Julian Brellier threw from the open top bus parade , about 50 meters up from the green tree, was a great catch  ( never been washed , someone's highlight will be handing it to him !!)

Gilzean sketch of the Hearts terrible trio 1956 cup win, handed down from grandfather

Gold watch given to my Granny (Gorgie Winnie) by Tommy Walker in 1962 as recognition of her service to Hearts for many, many years.

 

I also have a maroon and white polka dot, silk Hearts scarf worn by my father, his father, me and now my son who is 43.

I still have my ticket from my first ever game that I went to in 2005 with my Grandad. Now that my grandad has passed, it may only be a piece of paper but it's sentimental value priceless to me. 

 

I also have a signed Paul Hartley top which I love. 

 

I also have a program signed by Rudi from the Scottish cup final which I have framed.

Not my most treasured but a bit unique I have a slice of the old wooden tynecaatle flag pole which stood beside the main stand. Must have been cut down in the late 80s early 90s as my grandad got it for me as his pal was doing the job and he died in 93.

Used to have loads of newspaper clippings etc but they seem to have disappeared in various house moves (Wife denies everything!)  So basically I have my memories.  Forums like this are great at rolling out memorabilia, I especially love the old pics thread.  Magic.
