Cristiano Ronaldosigned Real Madrid shirts must be the most sought after piece of football memorabilia in the world. Icons.com have done numerous signings with Cristiano in the past so we were really excited to meet up with him in Madrid this weekend and have him sign Real Madrid home and away shirts, a selection of action photos, two differnt colours of his famous Nike Vapour boots and some Portugal shirts.
Ronaldo only signs for icons.com and we've worked with the current FIFA World Player of the Year for over five years now, going back to when he was establishing himself in the Manchester United team. The full range of Real Madrid products will be on the site tomorrow, but we still have a small amount of shirts and photos left from his last signing with us in February this year where he signed a number of Manchester United products for us.
He was looking fit and well and we hope he'll be back in the Real Madrid line up in time for 'El Clasico', the game everyone in world football is looking forward too this weekend when the Champions League winners Barcelona take on Real Madrid's new generation of Galacticos. Who will come out on top in the contest between Cristiano and Lionel Messi, hotly tipped to supplant Ronaldo as officially the best player in world football when the FIFA award is announced in early December?
We're just happy to have both amazing players available on the icons.com site. We can honestly say our memorabilia is defintely signed by the world's best.

The icons.com team was in Madrid for our exclusive signing with Cristiano Ronaldo this weekend and had the chance to make a visit to Estadio Santiago Bernabeu, iconic home of Real Madrid. We put our head in the club shop and on the wall they proclaim "Real Madrid - the most successful club of the 20th Century" which, to be fair, is true.
We were there for the game between Real and Racing Santander which ended in a relatively comfortable 1-0 win for the home team. Kaka was in the side showcasing all his trademark skills along with ex-Liverpool players Xavi Alonso and Alvaro Arbeloa. The goal was tucked away from 5 yards by Gonzalo Higuain and the 80,000 crowd went mad. Shame we didn't get to see Cristiano play but report say he'll be ready for 'El Clasico' when Real takes on Barcelona this weekend.
