Here at the Post Office Shop, we have a large range of collectible coins and stamps which commemorate a wide range of events and themes; the Great Britons Bill Shankly First Day Cover is not only a great way to recognise this great man, but also four others from the Great Britons collection.
Arguably one of the greatest football managers whose biggest achievements probably came as manager of Liverpool FC, winning three First Division titles, two FA cups and one UEFA cup. Initially a footballer himself, his Scottish passion always came to the forefront with quotes such as 'some people believe football is a matter of life and death, I can assure you it is much, much more important than that'.
Having managed Liverpool FC for more than fifteen years, he announced his retirement a few weeks after the 1974 FA Cup final victory. He was succeeded by Bob Paisley and died seven years later on 29 September 1981 at the age of 68.
The Great Britons Bill Shankly first day cover features the 1965 Liverpool football team on the front and comes postmarked Liverpool 'You'll Never Walk Alone'.

This stamp cover also includes the following Great Britons stamps:
