Answers of the collector
1. Since when are you a collector?
I started to collect footballs around 1980 with my first ball being the Tango River Plate. Ever since that time I've been collecting them but not consistent until after 1986 when I caught the collection bug. I've collected most of my World Cup, Euro and Olympic footballs from Europe, South America and then North America.

My favorite football design is the 1970 and 1974. In my opinion the hand made leather footballs are the best. It's great to see there are great collections all over the world and that the passion is global.

I played football for over 30 years and I enjoy having a piece of football history by collecting World Cup, Euro and Olympic balls.
