Tommy Gemmell Memorabilia auction

Recommended Posts


If the club bid for those items, they could be the first exhibits in a club museum at the stadium. 

Tommy, having played the whole of his career at Love St, should be inducted into the Hall of Fame.

Or what about the £2 discretionary SMiSA pot.

Then add vat.

although as a vat registered business you might be able to reclaim the vat as a legitimate business expense if you were displaying it.

Why on earth isn't he in it already?! Far more deserving than some folk who are in it or about to be inducted.

Given the auction is next week, I can see a whole can of worms being opened if SMISA use their money for it without getting member agreement. Of course, the same folk who would criticise them for going down that road would also moan if they didn't bid and they end up with someone else!

Aren't our major trophy teams inducted in their entirety?

Those are separate issues.

One way around it would be for the club to purchase and then ask for smisa to fund it?

I've put in a bid, if I get it I'll let the club keep it on display. (if they want)

When someone passes away many of us regret that we didn't ask them, tell them or do something for them.  Perhaps the club will respond and posthumously award Tommy induction into the Hall of Fame.

 

I can see them saving him for a big occasion. 150th anniversary, century anniversary of our first Scottish cup or his birth. Something like that instead of a run of the mill year

May I congratulate the club for investing on behalf of our community, the buying of these sacred historical items which will, hopefully, adorn the creation of a club museum in the stadium.  Together, with our trophies and other artifacts, a walk-through experience of the St Mirren story will prove to be a great attraction solidifying our identity, our community and our history.

Agreed and also a wee bit extra special on the 60th anniversary of our 59 cup win.
