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.

Bartmag79 Trustpilot product review 5 star rating 29 August

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!

Antony Burdett-Clark (Lightbox Studios) Trustpilot product review 4 star rating 22 May

Good service, very fast turnaround but needs more accurate description.

Very fast turnaround, and easy to use service. The product size and description could have been clearer, as the book was a fair bit smaller than I expected, but otherwise it's great quality and will go down very well indeed.

I ordered a bible for my child's first…

I ordered a bible for my child's first Communion and paid extra to have it delivered before or on the 15th May. Her Communion was today, 18th and it never arrived ! Really annoyed about this service. If you want a special gift to arrive on time then choose another seller !
