Pinboard: Old School Football

Old school and vintage are the new “in fashion”. Yet, I doubt anyone would want to wear one of those vintage football kits from Derby County, the ones in the picture. But the pic’s cool, right? Well, if you liked it, this is what you will find in the pinboard “Old school football” by James Gowans.

This pinboard is great for the reason that it is truly a historical archive. Sure, you might find some familiar faces around the pictures, such as PelĂ©, Oliver Kahn, a young Sir Alex Ferguson and Peter Beardsley; but there are also some true jewels. With this pinboard, you can go as far back as the 1920’s, the 1910’s… even the 19th century, as we can see in the previous picture… or, even further back in time.

So, what are you waiting for? Every football fan enjoys a history lesson even if you don’t support Liverpool! And, anyways, here’s something that I know will fascinate everyone as much as it did me and will make you click the link:

The world’s oldest football, dated 1497, found in Mary, Queen of Scots’ bedchamber. Apparently, it’s now a part of the Scottish Football Museum. And you can admire it here in this pinboard! Come on! What else do you need?

 

Go old school here.
