Yes the queues were massive, and after watching a highlight of Steve Young picking apart the San Diego Chargers in Super Bowl XXIX I was not exactly thrilled about only seeing on team’s Hall of Fame exhibits.

The Wembley Stadium car park became the 49ers Hall of Fame for a day

Waiting in a soggy car park at Wembley Stadium with my gorgeous wife was hardly the NFL dream, but for football memorabilia geeks like me it was worth it to see the shirt Steve Young wore in his only Super Bowl win, as well as the actual shirt that Terrell Owens wore when he caught an NFL record (at the time) 20 passes in a single game.

Here is the sign by Terrell Owens shirt

Yes 81 is my favourite number - its the one Art Monk wore. Wonder if Terrell Owens chose 81 because he admired Mr Monk?

Much to my wife's shame I got an NFL football temporary tattoo on my cheek whilst in the queue
