The best memories are in physical form as there's no better way to document and write history for the upcoming generation. The tradition of exchanging jerseys has been around football for decades, however the introduction of social media has added a whole new twist. Players can now ship their jerseys off to people and share on social media, however many others still do it the traditional way after every match.
This star was arguably good during his days in the PSL. He called time on his career and has already established himself in the coaching space. He is what may be reffered to as the middle child as he got the opportunity to play with both old and young footballers. A good number of his ex teammates are still active to his day which gives an idea of his era.
Vincent Parks Kobola took to social media to share pictures of his impressive jersey collection from over the years. This is probably the biggest collection when it comes to South African football as it has players from the likes of Teko Modise to Aubrey Modiba. It also includes a couple of international stars like Jordan Ayew and a couple others.
The former Moroka Swallows defender went on to tag all of the players who are represented in his collection. He is currently 36 years and already he has made strides in his coaching career as he worked with teams like Maritzburg United and Chippa United before ending up at Baroka where he is currently based.
Parks Koboli should consider opening up a museum for fans to be able to view his collection. This is a side of football that has been ignored in South Africa for quite some time. This is definitely a great documentation of the PSL football history as it contains jerseys from players who hadn't made their impact yet. A lot of the players in his collection went on to become household names which also hints at the role he played in the development of those stars.
