Venorlandus - World of Sport ~ Our Heroes (Posters)

World of Sport ~ Our Heroes
34 posters

These posters were promotional items, measuring 7¾" x 13¼", copyright Tim Holder (the artist) and Stephen Selby. These include some players who do not appear in the card set, i.e. John Charles, Billy Bremner and Denis Law (indicated by ***). The last time I saw these the football posters were priced at £125.00 each! Very rare.
UPDATE (23-05-2021 16:44):  Trevor Cotterell has provided a photo from the World of Sport Flick-Cards album, showing the complete list.
