Billy Wright (Wolverhampton Wanderers & England) Football Legend Coin/Stamp Gift Set

From the 'Football Legends' range: visit our ebay store to view the full range (multiple buy to compound carriage) at: http://stores.ebay.co.uk/historiccoinandstampsetgifts

The set contains an English Shilling dated 1946 (Struck in 50% silver), an English Shilling dated 1959.  It also contains the 1996 GB postage stamp, depicting Billy Wright, which was issued to commemorate football legends. 

The coins and stamp are housed within a display that is held in a protection case, sized just over 17cm x 12cm.  The display and case are in New/Mint condition.  Both of the coins are in Fine (or better) condition and the stamp in unused, Mint condition as issued.

Our manufacturing process includes a precision laser cutting method to create the necessary holes in each display for the required coins to be inserted and held, safely recessed, in the correct position.

This would make a wonderful and original gift for a Wolves or England supporter.

The product can be removed from the protection case, to allow frame mounted display, if so desired.

Billy Wright, CBE (6 February 1924 – 3 September 1994) was an English footballer for Wolverhampton Wanderers. A statue of him stands by their stadium in his memory.

 

Born William Ambrose Wright in Ironbridge, Shropshire, he played in the wing-half and other defensive positions. Billy was the first ever player to represent his country a hundred times. He captained England during their campaigns at the 1950, 1954 and 1958 World Cup finals.

 

His association with Wolves began in 1934 when he was taken on as a member of their ground staff; he made his first-team debut in 1939, becoming club captain soon after the Second World War. With him they won the First Division title three times (1954, 1958 and 1959) as well as the FA Cup in 1949. During his 541 appearances for Wolves and his 105 games for England, his disciplinary record was second to none — he was never cautioned or sent off by any referee. Of his 105 International appearances, 90 were as captain (an all time record shared with Bobby Moore); 70 were consecutive games.

 

He retired as a player in 1959 and was awarded the CBE soon after. He became manager of Arsenal in 1962, but was unable to bring any success to the club.

 

Wright left management and later became a television pundit and Head of Sport for ATV and Central Television. He also joined the Board of Directors at Wolverhampton Wanderers.

 

Wright became a minor media personality, and his marriage to Joy Beverley of the Beverley Sisters (at a time long before the era of footballers being known for having celebrity girlfriends) was one of the most successful showbiz marriages.

 

Wright was made an inaugural inductee of the English Football Hall of Fame in 2002 in recognition of his impact on the English game.

 

He was named the Midlands' greatest footballer by BBC Midlands Today following a public vote in May 2007. He died from stomach cancer in 1994, aged 70.
