Sports events and activities and popular music reach truly vast audiences these days and there is a large and growing market for all kinds of products and memorabilia connected with noteworthy occasions and people from these spheres.

At the lower end of the scale, collectors can still acquire classic sixties and seventies seven-inch singles for modest sums but rarer items, like instruments previously owned and played by iconic rock figures, can reach staggering values at auction.

The market is relatively young, idiosyncratic and unpredictable, often driven by those who have large disposable income available from the industries concerned, but the sector is already beginning to settle and mature. Enterprising enthusiasts are building up collections of all manner of distinctive clothing, stage props, promotional materials, recorded products and celebrities’ possessions which they hope will appreciate rapidly with increasing rarity, strengthening nostalgic sentiment and the passage of time. The evidence certainly points that way.

Another satisfied customer

Richard from Cheshire

"My collection has just grown over the years. It got to the stage where I dreaded the annual ritual of having to go around the house listing everything to be included on my annual home and contents policy. To save time, I ended up just renewing without including any new items I’d acquired. Of course, this meant I wasn’t properly insured."

"A friend recommended Hiscox Collections to me and now I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend it to anyone else. It is so simple, quick and great value. Instant peace of mind."

"Even though I haven’t needed to speak with anyone at Hiscox about setting up my cover, it’s reassuring to know that my collection is now insured by one of the world’s most respected names."
