As a child, Firma Stella CEO Peter Johnson became obsessed with collecting autographs. After leaving school he set his sights on travelling the world, visiting some of the world’s biggest sporting events, from the Euros in Poland, Cricket in Australia to the F1 in Melbourne & Kuala Lumpur! On his return, he set up Firma Stella to follow his passion for collecting sporting memorabilia. The company is now one of the biggest retailers of sports autographs in the UK and has regular customers all over the world.
According to Peter:
“There is something really special about collecting memorabilia. Each piece is a permanent reminder of a special moment in a sport’s star or team’s career. It forms an emotional connection to an item. That moment of sporting greatness forever celebrated in a unique piece, be it a football, rugby shirt or cricket bat, signed by the player! Who can forget when England won the rugby world cup in 2003? l have collected hundreds of special items over the years and each one takes me back to that special moment, forming a connection to the success and sporting achievement!”
The company has been built from the ground up, self-financed, with years of blood sweat and tears going into it, driven by the passions of the owner – sports, travel and entrepreneurship!
We understand the power of memorabilia. It connects individuals with teams, players and historical events. It’s this connection, this bond, that creates a strong emotional pull, allowing fans and collectors alike to share in the pure joy, the vicarious sharing of the achievements of high profile personalities. A physical manifestation of sporting prowess and historical encounters. Firma Stella’s number one aim is to provide one off unique exclusive memorabilia. We guarantee that all our items are authentic. We also like to show you our items are authentic. We often show the items being signed – photo proof!
Firma Stella has teamed up with some of the greatest stars in Rugby and Football, including Sale Sharks and England International Manu Tulagi, Everton and Columbia’s James Rodriguez, Rugby International Tom Curry and Rugby Union Coach Warren Gatland. Each one has signed exclusive items – all available in our online shop!

We’re unlike other retailers, all of our items are one-offs, exclusive & unique! In these troubled times, we cannot emphasise enough the rarity value of the products we sell.

We provide photographic proof of our items being signed whenever we can. Sometimes it is not always possible to take a photo but when it is available, you will see the image on the product page. If you require this photo, we can send it to you via email once the order is confirmed. We also watermark our photographic proofs to ensure they cannot be replicated.
