I hope DCFC buy em. Would be good if we had a 'museum' type installation somewhere at the ground which could be incorporated into stadium tours. All that stuff that was at the Quad could maybe be added over time too. 

If id accrued a bit more OT this month then I'd buy them myself but what with Xmas and away game commitments, then I'm a few quid shy of the anticipated asking price.

There's plenty of room to build above the turnstiles on the east stand side. Next time you go through look up and there's horizontal girders that could be built on.

it'd make a nice feature museum/coffee bar type thing.

Surely it'll be the focal point of the Plaza...

Hear! Hear! A priceless collection that ought to be at Pride Park...perhaps the Club could buy and charge a small fee to visitors to see ....

Lovely sounding product but I think they're trying it on with that estimate. Something's worth what people will pay for it and Bloomer is mainly associated with DCFC, so this is likely to go to a fan and collector. Outside Derby Bloomer won't have much recognition and kudos. Love it if they become part of a DCFC museum, and I'd loan some of my stuff too, but they're having a laugh at half a million quid. A tenth of that maybe. But only maybe.

I think there's some mileage in a Rams museum / permanent exhibition at PP. Some innovative design and production could really showcase the Rams history and achievements.

 

If I am being brutally honest, it wouldn't need to be a large museum to show case our achievements: 1 FA Cup and 2 First Division Titles over 128 years.  Oh and a Watneys Cup and a Texaco Cup

Charity Shield!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

And several Bass Vases and Brian Clough Trophies.

It isn't all about the trophies though. it's about the history of the club.

I get that but a permanent installation is possible. The history and story of DCFC is more then enough never mind the (few yet noteworthy) trophies I reckon
