This is the unique original Watercolour painting by John B Higgins.

A watercolour depiction of The Busby Babes and the Munich Air Disaster.

The "Busby Babes" were the group of footballers who progressed from the club's youth team into the first team under the management of the eponymous Matt Busby from the late 1940s and throughout the 1950s.

The squad most associated with the name "babes" was that of the 1957-58 season, many of whom died in the Munich air disaster, and who, with an average age of 22, had been touted to dominate European football for the next few years.

John Higgins is probably most famous for his work in 2000AD and for colouring Alan Moore's Watchmen series for DC Comics.

Original artwork for Look and Learn (2nd August 1980).
