Some blatant evidence of forgery in the snappily titled: ‘The Wonderful World of Soccer Stars in Action Picture Stamp Album’ from 1969-70…
Having gone to all the trouble of neatly (too neatly?) colouring in Howard Kendall in his classic amber and blue Everton away strip, as well as a team-mate’s elbow, this FKS retoucher then let the side down.
All that attention to detail, giving him new eyebrows, a nice smile and even an 18th Century style courtiers beauty spot has gone to waste. He forgot to colour in the players in the background, so there appear to be three teams competing in this match, one of whom looks suspiciously like Preston North End, Kendall’s former club.
