1966 World Cup Signed Autographed Shirt [E010]

A 40th anniversary replica goalkeeper shirt commemorating England's 1966 World Cup win hand signed clearly in black marker by the legendary goalkeepers Gordon Banks and Peter Bonetti. Banks was named the second best goalkeeper of the 20th Century by the IFFHS and his consistent performances in goal led to the re-wording of a common English idiom used in everyday speech to 'Safe as the Banks of England.' Bonetti is a former goalkeeper for Chelsea, the St. Louis Stars, Dundee United and England. He was known for his safe handling, lightning reflexes and his graceful style, for which he was given the nickname, 'The Cat'. He was one of several goalkeepers who specialised in a one-armed throw which could achieve a similar distance to a drop kick.
