    So in 2008 I won a football tournament and our team won a official (I think) EURO 2008 ball) Anyway, I thought these gain value as the s on ebay are going for about £50-£100. But when I try to find mine on google or ebay I haven't seen one? Anyone tell me if its fake or I dunno, Im guessing its worth f-all but its worth to see if it is. Thanks!

    I believe they gave you a Replica, like the one they sold in shops at the time, still you could get some money as the game was 8 years ago and there are always some collectors out there!

    It's not 'fake'.

    You should be able to tell if it was a match ball (one the professionals/competitions use) or replica (ones you usually buy in shops) based on what is written on the ball. The replicas retail at about £20-25, match balls £75-90ish. I got a Total 90 Aerow match ball (first or second edition can't remember) a few years back and the difference between that and the replica is very hard to tell unless you're looking for it but it should say something on the ball.

    I can't tell you anything about Adidas balls though. Best bet is to find a replica Adidas ball from the same period and compare or find out the exact model of ball by name.
