Written by Rob on 20. Oct, 2016
Hi Everyone. I'm a football collector & recently had the privilege of speaking with Alex Hamil. He suggested that I post on here, asking if anybody had any footballs from the 50's - 1990's. If so, I'd love to hear from you - even if you don't wish to part with any, it'd be great to see some photos as it's difficult to research older balls. 
Many thanks, Rob
