Not a bad start!

The reason I ask is that we're looking at having a professionally produced, limited edition print made to sign of the past and start the new era of CIFC.

The prints would be originally drawn by a professional artist and reproduced only to a certain number (say 100), and be sold for a set price. After all have been sold no further prints would ever be produced and the money generated would go towards the trust.

The design will be completely up to the Trust members, but I think one essential element would be some images of past players/evetns for us to look back on as inspiration for the future.

What do you reckon?

Brilliant. I'd love one. Perhaps the players could be contacted to sign them too. That would certainly make them even more collectable.

How about producing something from the 2001 FA Trophy Final as well? The clubs greatest day and a signed print of that would be top class. Think it might raise a good few bob too.

As well as the players, what image do you think they should revolve around?

You could try contacting Sky to enquire about producing copies of the 2001 FA Trophy Final. They will almost certainly tell you to get lost so maybe homegrown copies could be produced and sold to benefit the Trust ? Could be packaged with signed photo(s) as well.

If we are including players from our history then Peter Taylor would have to be included.

Ian_W might still have copies of the photographs he took. I'm sure this one could be blown up in size...
