1966 World Cup artwork from Wall Envy

Footy_close_1000

It's pretty hard to escape the rash of football inspired products at the moment. Here's an original piece of artwork that looks back to the 1966 World Cup, made by Wall Envy.

Wall Envy are the people behind the vintage French wall art we featured a while back. It uses the same idea: the words in this case being the names of the players in the 66 England World Cup squad. Like the other piece of artwork, the names are also illustrated onto a page from an old dictionary. However, in this piece – to help you recall that long forgotten taste of victory – the dictionary used is German. 

The piece costs £13.

Don’t know about you, but we much prefer the classic football shirts of days gone by to the super-thin, synthetic numbers of the modern-era. Just as well you can still buy classic World Cup shirts at Toffs.

Of course you can buy an England 1966 shirt, a Brazil 1970 (above), a Holland 1974, an Argentina 1986 or an Italia 1982 track top. Indeed, you can pick up every ‘big name’ team from just about every eras. But you can also pick up some of the more niche shirts of past and current World Cup participants too – like the USA 1950 shirt, also pictured above.

Or to be really niche, check out a 1960s Japan football shirt over the page, as well as the shirt worn by Australia in their first World Cup in 1975. Most prices are around the £34.99 mark, but start at £19.99. Check out the full range at the site.
