Celebrate soccer history with this vintage du Maurier matchbook art print featuring the International World Cup of 1970.
The 1970 Word Cup was held in Mexico and was the first World Cup to be televised in color. It featured some of the greatest players of all time, including Pele and Gerd Muller.
The matchbook, with its faded cover and last remaining match, may remind one of the excitement and drama of the matches that were played, including the thrilling final between Brazil and Italy.
A unique piece of memorabilia for any sports fan or collector, this retro graphic design captures the excitement of the tournament and the era.
A few years ago, while browsing an estate sale, I stumbled upon a treasure trove of vintage matchbooks. As a graphic designer, I couldn't help but be captivated by their iconic and often minimalist branding. Their well-worn and weathered state adds to their distinct character that tells a story of their own.
