Product Description

You'll love this because...

Through headlines and pictorials, you can relive the career of the man Pelé called “the greatest footballer in the world”.

  • Personalise the cover with Any Name
  • Incredible newspaper coverage of the life of George Best
  • A variety of handbound embossed covers to choose from
  • Book made from newspaper headlines from 1963 onwards
  • The book is tabloid size at 31x38cm

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

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!

Excellent service!

I ordered the book as a Christmas gift and was doubtful if it would arrive in time as I ordered quite late. I needn't have worried as it arrived in time, even with the free postage option . I am very pleased.

Mixed feelings

I bought two books. One of the books was amazing. My daughters name was in the story on every page. It was great. The other book had my daughters name at the top of the page and not in the story. I was very disappointed.

There has been a large delay to the delivery of my product, which is disappointing as it was for my Niece's 1st birthday. Not sure I would use the website again

Lovely books, well presented and packaged. Thought they were a little pricey though, good job i had a discount code. Grandkids loved the fact their names were in the books.
