    The context is : there are expensive players memorabilia and so on.

    I'm afraid this means nothing to me; 'and so on' rarely adds anything of value to what has gone before. Have you checked that memorabilia is the word you want?

    Yes.

    Start every sentence with a capital letter.

    Re: Proper way to write players memorabilia ?

    I'd say "player memorabilia" using the singular form like we do record shop, shoe laces, car dealer, etc.

    If you use the plural, then "players' memorabilia" to show that it belonged to more than one player.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
