About Icons

The Icons signed football memorabilia shop was initially a small part of the popular personal players website of leading footballers www.icons.com. At the outset in 1999, Icons.com provided personal websites for Ryan Giggs, Dennis Bergkamp and Henrik Larsson amongst many others.

The idea for developing the Icons shop came from the great relationships we had with these leading players.

We realised that there was a huge demand from fans around the world for 100 per cent authentic signed football memorabilia. Over the years, we have travelled far and wide to carry out exclusive signing sessions with the world's greatest ever footballers: Pele, Diego Maradona, Leo Messi, Cristiano Ronaldo, Iker Casillas, Steven Gerrard, Eric Cantona, Zinedine Zidane and Ronaldo - the list goes on and on.

In 2007 we re-launched the Icons website as a standalone shop and concentrated on satisfying this demand for quality signed products from the biggest names in the game. As football fans ourselves, we want the best products from best players too.

Our aim now is simple; to provide our customers with the best range of authentic signed football memorabilia there is. Now we also provide signed memorabilia from the biggest names in sport such as Michael Jordan, Muhammad Ali and Tiger Woods.

You can view our entire range on this website, or take a look at a selection of our items in Harrods, London, UK.
