Quite possibly the greatest British footballer of all-time, George Best’s career and personal life were absolutely packed with incredible highs and devastating lows. Best’s early years were spent winning the European Cup, being crowned European footballer of the year and finishing as Manchester United’s top goalscorer for five years running, and this great success on the pitch was mirrored by his lifestyle off it, achieving celebrity status, appearing on Top of the Pops and dating Miss World. However, the extravagant lifestyle that was almost as famous as his skill with a football would ultimately lead to his downfall, with his later years plagued by alcoholism, divorce and money troubles. All the key moments of a legendary footballing life are presented through newspaper clippings here in this fantastic bespoke piece of George Best memorabilia.

Personalise your George Best book with a special message on the title page. Choose between cover options and emboss a name in gold to make this the perfect present for any fan of the “beautiful boy” and the “beautiful game”.

How to Personalise Your George Best Book

This edition is available in a green leatherette cover with the option to emboss with the recipient’s name, or in black luxury leather, which is already embossed in gold. Also add a unique message to feature on the book’s inside title page.

Check your personalisation: accents and other symbols cannot be used unless otherwise stated.

I bought this book for my dads 60th birthday and it was great. I was half expecting little A5 book with a few articles in it but when it arrived it was a huge book full of interesting articles about not only George Best but other stories that happened on the same day. It was made even better when I found out my dad was actually in the book!

Shipping takes forever but...

I recieved my book without ever knowing it had shipped. The tracking service did not work one time with my order. I ordered this well in advance of a birthday party and was greatful I did so since it took over 3 weeks to receive. That being said....the book is beautiful and exactly what i was expecting. The entire family loves it.

Nilani Chandan Trustpilot product review 3 star rating 17 Jan 2021

Delayed delivery and book cover was damaged

There were delays with delivery but this was due to Covid-19 restrictions. Would’ve appreciated an email to update me about this. The book was nice however, I was slightly disappointed that the cover had scratch marks on it and slightly damaged at the corners. Overall, lovely gift idea but disappointed about the damages considering how expensive the product is.
