West Ham United have teamed up with Royal Mail to produce a unique commemorative stamp sheet in honour of the Hammers’ 112-year stay at the Boleyn Ground.
The individually numbered limited edition stamp sheet comprises ten labels adjacent to ten First Class Union Flag stamps featuring a snapshot of the legendary players and moments of Boleyn Ground history.
And now, the stamp sheets bearing the iconic numbers and years from Hammers history, each signed by members of the Hammers’ 2016/17 first-team squad, are up for grabs.
Each and every purchaser of a Farewell Boleyn stamp sheet* will be entered into a prize draw to win one of the XI unique stamp sheets.
There’s 0006 in honour of the late, great Bobby Moore, the formation of Thames Ironworks FC in 1895 and the founding of West Ham United five years later in 1900.
Then, it’s the Hammers’ first game at the Boleyn Ground in 1904, War Cup glory in 1940 and a first FA Cup triumph in 1964. European Cup Winners’ Cup victory at Wembley followed in 1965, before Billy Bonds twice lifted the FA Cup, in 1975 and 1980.
And finally, the Club’s unforgettable final season at the Boleyn Ground, 2015 and 2016.
Set against the backdrop of the final official West Ham United squad photo ever taken at the Boleyn Ground, the stamps include the iconic figures of Bobby Moore, Sir Geoff Hurst, Sir Trevor Brooking and Bonds, among other famous West Ham faces, past and present.
Each commemorative sheet is individually numbered and part of a limited edition. The commemorative sheet is priced at just £14.99 and is available online from the Royal Mail here or by calling 08457 641 641.
The commemorative stamp sheet is housed in a folder bearing the unmistakable Claret and Blue of the Hammers. The folder pays tribute to all things Boleyn Ground, with Club history, honours and numbers all included, as well as the words of I’m Forever Blowing Bubbles.
*The competition concludes at midnight on Sunday 31 July.
