Ultra rare hand sewn FIFA Approved Size 5 football, hand signed in fine blue ink by Howard Kendall’s 1985-86 Everton 1st team squad that finished an impressive second in the Frist Division and also reached the FA Cup Final. Most of this squad went on to win the First Division the following season.
Autographs include manager Howard Kendall (RIP), Gary Lineker, Gary Stevens, Graeme Sharp, Neville Southall, Alan Harper, Graham Smith, Colin Harvey, Ian Pointon, Bobby Mimms, Peter Reid, Adrian Heath, Pat Van Den Hauwe, Coach Mick Heaton + more unidentified.
The ball is an original and over 35 years old. It has been carefully stored out of natural light so the signatures are bold and clear. As expected for a ball of this age it no longer fully inflates however it does hold a very reasonable shape as photographed allowing it to be effectively displayed.
It comes complete with COA issued by Footy Autographs and a signature map to help identify the autographs.
A very rare piece of memorabilia for the specialist Everton collector.
