Burgnich's Match-Issued/Worn Italia Shirt, 1970
Win this light blue Italian National Team home shirt, issued/worn by the former long-time Inter defender Tarcisio Burgnich for a 1970 season match. That season Italy was the runner-up in the Mexico World Cup.
Born in Ruda, Italy on April 25, 1939, Burgnich was one of the strongest defensive players in the history of Italian soccer. European Champion in 1968 and second place at the 1970 World Cup, Tarcisio was a flagship player of the Inter team, playing for them from 1962 to 1974.
Over twelve years he participated in 467 official games with the Nerazzurri, winning four Scudetti, two Champions Cups and two Intercontinental Cups, becoming one of the most integral elements to the team's success in the roles of both right fullback and sweeper.

The mission at the heart of Theodora is to contribute to the wellbeing of children in hospitals, hospices and specialist care centers by providing visits from professional performers who have been trained to work in a medical environment.
At the Theodora Children’s Charity, we believe that laughter is the best medicine. Our Giggle Doctors visit children in hospitals, hospices and specialist care centers across England. By combining music, play, magic and storytelling these professional performers bring magical moments to brave children in challenging times. We believe that EVERY sick or disabled child should get the giggles that only a Giggle Doctor can bring.
Our Giggle Doctors are professional performers, highly trained to work both in the medical environment and with children with disabilities. They come from a wide range of backgrounds and bring with them a variety of skills (among our team are actors, entertainers, magicians, musicians and singers). The training consists of a rigorous schedule of artistic and medical workshops, which cover topics such as child development, infection control, child bereavement and the impact of illness and bereavement on families.
