We're thrust into the heart of an intense soccer (or football, if you will) match in this exciting 1963 poster that was printed in Spain. A goalie swats away a ball headed right for the goal, as his team mate cheers him on. This poster is shown before a banner of text would have been added; likely promoting the team's next match or a season schedule.

This poster is a bit of a mystery with regards to the teams being depicted. While many may attribute the blue and white jerseys to the national kit for Argentina, they did not play the Spanish national team in 1962 or 1963. It is much more likely that it is a La Liga game being shown here, or perhaps even a match from the Inter Cities Fairs Cup of 1962 or 1963; both years were won by the club team, Valencia. The victorious team's kits match those of Valencia, and this is the location that the poster was printed in so it appears to be a good, while not confirmed, hunch. The Inter Cities Fairs Cup was a precursor to the FIFA World Cup, featuring club teams rather than national teams in competition with one another. It is one of two images in a series.

This poster is conservation mounted, linen backed, and in excellent condition. We guarantee the authenticity of all of our posters.

  • If there's anything you want to know about posters, vintage or more modern, there's nothing Mr Ross doesn't know. His open and friendly manner helps one to choose the most suitable material whether for decoration, investment or whatever... I can't recommend him highly enough.

  • Just wanted to say thanks for the poster. You sent it on Thursday and it was delivered the following Monday (nearly quicker than it took us to get home) to our house in Perth, Australia. We have just had it framed. We love it; it goes perfectly with the room.
