  • Money to be Made from Oval Ball Memories

    Rugby has been a little slow compared to football and cricket in gathering a collection of collectables for sale but with every passing year the market for souvenirs of great days of yore increases. That crumpled Six Nations programme under the bed, a dog-eared book gathering dust on a shelf or even a 2003 World Cup key-ring all these, and much more, could be a source of income if marketed shrewdly.
