The perfect way to remember some iconic footballing greats.

Here at the Post Office Shop, we have a large range of collectible coins and stamps which commemorate a wide range of sporting events; this Celebrating Sir Bobby Charlton Cover is the perfect way to remember an English footballing great.

2013 saw the 150th anniversary of the founding of the Football Association back in 1863, together with 140 years of the Scottish Football Association. Royal Mail celebrated the event with the issue of 11 very special stamps which represent some of the greatest British footballers to have ever played the beautiful game; all of whom have been inducted into the National Football Museums Hall of Fame.

To coincide with the issue, Buckingham Covers have produced the Football Heroes - Celebrating Sir Bobby Charlton Cover which features two miniature retail Football Heroes stamps; with the cover dedicated to Sir Bobby Charlton.

Arguably one of the most famous English players of all time, Sir Bobby Charlton's name is synonymous with Manchester United and the great 'Busby Babes'. Born on 11 October 1937 in Ashington, Charlton signed for Manchester United aged 17 and went on to play alongside Dennis Law and George Best through a period of some on United's greatest ever football.

Charlton retired from international football in 1970 with 106 caps under his belt, retiring fully in 1973 and moving into management with Preston North End. Notching up more than 750 games for Manchester United and with 247 goals in all competitions, Charlton was voted 'European Footballer of the Year' in the memorable year of 1966, England's World Cup winnig year.

With numerous accolades given throughout his playing career and subsequent retirement, including a CBE and a knighthood, culminating with the Freedom of the City of Manchester on 2 March 2009, Sir Bobby Charlton will always be one of the biggest icons in football history.

Cancelled with a specially designed Old Trafford, Manchester postmark on the day of issue (9th May 2013) and with Limited Stock, the Football Heroes - Celebrating Bobby Charlton Cover is the perfect way to celebrate the success of not only the English and Scottish Football Associations, but also some iconic footballing greats.

This stamp cover also includes stamps recognising:

  • George Best - Northern Ireland: Spotted at 15 years old by Bob Bishop, a Manchester United Scout; Best went on to mesmerise fans with his impressive arsenal of footballing skills.
  • Bobby Moore - England: Serving West Ham for a marvellous 16 years, he was renowned for his defensive skill and composed nature. His career highlight was captaining England to their 1966 World Cup victory.
