At the end of a season which has seen the retirement of Javier Zanetti and Ryan Giggs take his first steps away from playing and into coaching, it's fitting that it's also the anniversary of a player who could put them both to shame for sheer longevity. Roy Race is 60 this year and in 853 issues did everything from winning the European Cup to getting shot. At least one of the IBWM team remains obsessed with Roy (mentioning no names but his initials may or may not be DH) and several of these 100 football postcards are currently making their way towards frames in Dave's, sorry, that unknown IBWM editor's house.
This 100 postcard set celebrates his entire career and features some of the most iconic covers and panels from the entire series. They look stunning, the reprinting taking away the faded colours of the issues lying in boxes in the attic across the land. If Roy of the Rovers was ever your thing, believe us when we say this is a box of absolute joy.
