Less is more, when it comes to the latest item due to go on display at the National Football Museum. Blackburn Rovers’ David Dunn has loaned a very small but precious engraved stud to our collection.
The stud is intricately engraved with all 38 of the English national team’s World Cup goalscorers, plus the famous three lions emblem. The task was undertaken by Birmingham engraver Graham Short, and took six painstaking months to complete.
"I bought it because it's a great piece of art which is a complete one of a kind. The craftsmanship is amazing and the story it tells makes it an exciting piece of football memorabilia."
Dunn has made over 300 appearances for Blackburn, his hometown club, in addition to a 4 year spell at Birmingham City.
