I was flying back to Heathrow after the game, it was a 2-0 win so I'd had a few celebratory scoops 😉

 

I was in Row 2 and the Duchess was sat on her own in Row 1, being a kind sort I asked her if I could buy her a drink which she politely refused so I went for the big one and asked her if she'd sign my program, which she happily did. She asked me my name and wrote "To Allan   Hearts rule" beside the signature 😎

 

I'll see if I can find it later and pop a picture on.


class :lol:

I have a squad signed Eamonn Bannon testimonial strip lying in a drawer. Presented by the man himself at a testimonial function. 

Superb.

Got a couple of things:

 

Match worn Neil Berry testimonial shirt. The pink tartan one. Don't know who wore it, has number 15 on the back I think. 
 

Match worn home shirt, Miguel Pallardo season 15/16, my uncle workes with Jamie Walker's brother or something at the time so he handed it in for me and it's signed by the whole team. Currently in a frame in my Dad's office. Ownership is disputed lol. 

 

Scotland shirt worn by Darren Jackson c. 1995/6 (the tartan one, number 9 on the back). I'm sure he played for Hibs at the time but was a family friend and gave us a Scotland shirt knowing we wouldn't be interested in a Hibs one lol). Used to be pinned to my bedroom wall but will be in my folks loft. 

 

Antti Niemi's gloves from a friendly match we played at Livi about 1998/9. I was ballboy for Livi then and was behind his goal for that game; asked for his top at the end but he said he couldn't (I now know clubs generally only have one set of strips for friendlies/reserves) and gave me his gloves instead. They were mockit and me and my brother used to wear them to play football, so they'll be long gone. 

 

And not Hearts related but I randomly have a bag of Barry Ferguson's Blackburn Rovers training gear. There's actually loads in it Inc trainers haha, again nae idea where it is but probably in my parents loft as well.

 

Got my 98, 2012 cup final tickets. Got my wee boy's first match ticket. Kept his first strip, stuff like that.

Great items. Especially Berry Testimonial shirt.

I have tried to download a photo on here but it comes up server error. 🤷‍♂️
If you PM me your mobile number or email address I will forward the photo to you.

You have to reduce the size of the photo to less than 1mb before it will load on kickback.

The ticket stub and match program from the 1998 Cup Final.  I have no idea how they survived a 4 day drinking session but they did.

Hearts ball signed by the 2006 cup final team (& Vlad :lol:)

 

edit: Also have a signed 2008/2009 top someone gave to me, doesn't seem to have been signed by that team though, can make out Lafferty, Smith, Callaghan & Milinkovic on it.

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. 

I've got them too mate !😄

Wasn't alive to experience that glorious season but was given the pennant by my 70's hero Donald Ford, who lived next door to my cousins in Linlithgow.

My two most treasured Hearts possessions are the Black 3rd Shirt which is absolutely stunning and beautiful and my pin badge which shows our beautiful Club emblem with the word OWNER underneath, the black shirt is a real head turner and conversation starter when I wear it here in Cardiff! HHGH

Maroon ♥️ Army!

After watching every final from the one in 1968 with my late brother, no matter what part of the world ether of us were in at the time, my most treasured Hearts possession is the memory I have of watching the cup final with him in 1998. Nothing else comes close.

1998 was certainly a special final for people in different ways.

Yep, and like myself, I'm sure many will think about all the different friends that took part in their journey with Hearts throughout the years. So many different people, so many wonderful memories ☺️

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.

Met Dave on new years day, was looking well, though said he was rough.

I hope you’re doing ok yourself?

 

 A belated Happy New Year to you.  👍🍺

I don't have much, but the top two are unquestionably the  FoH top with the names on it and this, bought outside Tynecastle in 2012

I have a lot of Hearts memorabilia including 300 (ish) match worn shirts, but my most treasured Hearts possession I have is a glass tankard given to me for my 21st birthday by my Gran and Grandad (who sadly are no longer with us anymore) with my name and the old Hearts badge etched on one side and a picture of Tynecastle Park (as it was circa 1992) on the back.

Got a proper print of the photo that was in the Evening News of Stephane Adam celebrating, after scoring his goal in the final. Managed to get him to sign it after a warm up prior to a match at Tynie. Now framed and a prize possession, along with my yellow replica hearts top signed by Robbo !

I bought a programme from the 1956 Scottish Cup Final signed by Freddie Glidden on ebay about 15 years ago.  Kept safe and sound.

Got a few signed jerseys over the years, from Phil Stamp to Andy Webster! Love my signed photo of Sir Paul "Hatrick" Hartley giving it the 3 finger salute in the semi final at Hampden. The most prized now though has to be my Dads Scarf & FOH badge as he sadly died last year on the 30th August 😢

A segment of the old flagpole plus a framed 1956 programme + ticket (from my passed uncle Andy).

 

Had to varnish the wood but should have used The Repair Shop truth be told.

I have a Hearts cushion with badges attached, a golden stripped Centenary Scarf. Around 20 programmes pre 80's, League and SCF along with others all handed down to Me.. A few Hearts related books .

The greatest gift i was ever grasped and held tight in my life was to possess the Heart for it.

my match worn signed John Souttar shirt :berra:

 

I'm raging because I have 2 shirts with Souttar on the back which are going to have to live in the cupboard forever :lol:

 

They were bought with the intent of winding up the Dundee United fans I played 5s with.  At least I got a good few years of use out of them!

I dunno about that. They could come in handy.

If you rip off an S,T A and an R, you can keep them for a, "Neilson and Budge out" campaign in the future.

One of them is an older shirt, with Souttar 24 on the back. 

 

Perfect for a Someone Out 2024 Campaign.  I'll get on it in 2 years time :lol:

I was very, very proud of a photo from my plot ceremony in which I receive my certificate from one of our top players. Had it as my screensaver.

 

Now it's just an embarrassing photo of me with Ratsnakehun Souttar.

Unless it is a directors medal it has to one of these Hearts heroes -

 

Oh and it can't be Dave Mackay's as his medal was sadly stolen from a private collector years ago. I am also sure Jimmy Wardhaugh's medals are in Chambers Street Museum as well.
