Football Museum Cover

The first ever cover featuring the famous Tom Finney "Splash" statue and the logos of the International Football Institute and National Football Museum.

The cover and stamps were a special issue by Bletchley Park Post Office to commemorate the launch of the Institute in Preston, Lancashire.

Football legend Sir Tom Finney accepted a framed copy on behalf of the museum where it now hangs. He also signed a number of these covers.
