It's the greatest show on earth. Glorious, overblown, controversial, life-affirming and magical, the Olympics has come a long way from its roots in ancient Greece where naked men charged about for the glory of Zeus.

The modern Olympics began in 1896 in Greece (again), albeit thanks to the work of Frenchman Baron Pierre de Coubertin.

More than a century later, the Games continue to make careers, create legends and, as often as not, bankrupt host cities along the way.

Cheating, shamateurism and drug scandals are as much a part of the Olympics as faster, higher, stronger but its most recent outing, London 2012, was a roaring success and the greatest show on earth just keeps on getting greater.

We have a truly Olympian selection of 100% authentic, high quality hand-signed memorabilia in stock.

Seb Coe, Steve Redgrave, Nadia Comaneci, Daley Thompson, Victoria Pendleton, Jess Ennis – a list of legends that barely scratches the surface of the gold standard Olympic memorabilia that we have for you.
