George Best was one of the greatest footballers ever to have walked the Earth - an absolute legend. His ability as an all-round player was, and still is, unsurpassed. He was highly skillful, a tough tackler and great in the air. As well as being an exceptionally gifted sportsman, George also had a unique gift when it came to people. His open and friendly nature meant that other were naturally drawn to him and he always had time to get to know people. As well as the legions of football fans who watched, awestruck as he played, he also touched the hearts of everyone whom he came into contact with: from club managers to the grounds man at Old Trafford, Bestie had time for them all. Maureen Hunt and Bernie Smith are two avid collectors of George Best memorabilia and there is not much about the great man that they don't know or possess. They have come to realise that every collectable, keepsake and souvenir has a humourous, heart-warming or poignant story surrounding it, and piecing these gems of history together they have compiled a fitting tribute to a genuine icon. Packed with anecdotes and rare photographs, this delightful book will be a welcome addition to any Best fan's collection and is wonderful way to commemorate the man who was both hero and friend to so many people.
