This is the Signed unique original Watercolour painting by Ralph Bruce.

Series of pictures showing memorable events in Football, from the top: 1934 Cup Final, Manchester City vs Portsmouth - Frank Swift giving a memorable performance before fainting at the full time whistle; Portsmouth goalie Jock Gilfillan appeared in three Cup Finals (1927 Scottish Cup Final, 1929 & 1934 Cup Final) but didn't gain a winners medal in any of them;

the West Ham team of 1930 were travelling to play Derby but their bus broke down, they managed to hitch a lift in a horse drawn removals van and made it to the stadium in time; Mark Hooper of Sheffield Wednesday had exceptionally small feet. One day he arrived to play an away match and found he had forgotten his football boots - eventually a pair that fitted him were found, belonging to the referee's schoolboy son; 1931, Ricardo Zamora, the captain of Spain, wore a large, floppy cap as a lucky mascot - humiliated at a 7-1 defeat at the hands of England, he snatched off his cap and dashed it into the mud, whilst weeping bitterly;

Tottenham Hotspur stopped using the number 13 on a locker after their star winger sustained a series of injuries that almost ruined his career - once the number was painted over the injuries stopped; Frank Barson heading a goal 35 yards for Aston Villa.

This is the original artwork from Look and Learn no. 427, 21st March 1970, "The Story of Soccer".
