The match ball from the Arsenal game v Everton at Goodison Park 16th March 1935 when Frank Moss became the only goalkeeper in the entire history of Arsenal FC to score a goal, signed by the Arsenal and Everton team in ink and with a match inscription for the Moss game with 2-0 final score & goalscorers (the other being Ted Drake), in a cubic perspex display case with an original press cutting, 25cm., 9 3/4in.

Moss is also the only Arsenal goalkeeper to score in a first-class match. On 16 March 1935, in a First Division match against Everton at Goodison Park, Moss dislocated his left shoulder. With no substitutes allowed in those days, Moss was forced to play the rest of the game on the left wing with an outfield player deputizing for him between the sticks. Incredibly, he scored Arsenal's first goal in a 2-0 win. He kept the match ball as a souvenir and both teams autographed it for him. However, that match also proved to be Moss's downfall. He found it hard to recover from the injury - he played five more matches the following season but the injury recurred. He was finally advised to retire in the summer of 1937, at the age of only 27. He played 161 matches for Arsenal in total having joined them from Oldham Athletic in 1931 for a fee of £3,000. He also won 5 England caps and played in the famous 'Battle of Highbury' international v the World Champions Italy.

Here we have an original late 1960's plastic soccer ball endorsed by Manchester United & Scotland legend Denis Law- the ball is complete with its original packaging and is unused - it was manufactured in Great Britain by Peter Raphael of Hempshaw Lane Stockport - the ball itself has deflated over the years but the original valve is included - it still displays really well - I would be surprised if there are many of these about in their original packaging and it's a great piece of memorabilia.
