Original Daily Telegraph newsstand poster advertising the paper’s coverage of the 1966 World Cup. The tournament was covered for the newspaper by the sportswriter David Miller. A rare poster indeed, which features unique artwork for the 1966 World Cup – a British bulldog wearing a floppy hat adorned with the Union flag, rather than the official ‘World Cup Willie’ mascot (a football playing lion). All-in-all an outstanding collector’s item from one of England’s greatest sporting achievements. A higher resolution image is available for viewing on request.
