Charles Buchan was captain of England, Sunderland and Arsenal before retiring from the game of football to become a journalist – giving his name to Charles Buchan’s Football Monthly, the world’s first football magazine, in 1951. And the Charles Buchan Leather Football celebrates that periodical.
Designed by Wild and Wolf, the old-style leather ball is covered in a design that uses the images and pages of the old magazine. Not just that, it’s also sold in a vintage-style cardboard box for the collectors out there.
Available to pre-order, it retails for £20.
