Slazenger 1966 World Cup special edition match ball

Slaz

A real talking point, as well as useful thing should you fancy an impromptu kickabout – the Slazenger 1966 World Cup special edition match ball.

You may or may not know that Slazenger produced the ball used in England’s ’66 World Cup triumph and this is a replica of that very same ball. No boffins worked on this particular piece of kit, this is a genuine hand stitched leather ball made up of 25 panels. But it is said to be a little lighter than the original (currently housed in the National Football Museum, wherever that happens to be this week).

Limited edition as you might expect, it sells for £19.66.

You actually get two watches and a keyfob in the lot, the latter a circular metallic enamelled keyfob designed with World Cup Willie mascot to one side and the Jules Rimet trophy to the other. But it's the watches that are the most interesting – both produced by La Gruyere, the faces feature the World Cup Willie mascot on one side, the World Cup decal on the other.

Scoreline – graphic art showcasing classic goals

1966

Here's something that might not be obvious at first glance, so let us explain Scoreline.

Essentially these are posters that graphically outline goals scored in classic football matches. Every World Cup final since 1934 and soon, FA Cup and League Cup games too.

The one above is obviously the 1966 World Cup Final, producing an image that could be pop art from that very same decade. If you want it, head over to the company's website, where it can be yours for £30.
