Blog 420 points out that the British Post Office issued a single stamp in 1966 to commemorate the previous and only time when the English football team won the World Cup in the year that England was the host country. The Post Office had issued 3 stamps to commemorate the hosting of the Championships and the lowest value was overprinted 'ENGLAND WINNERS' to commemorate the victory. Rarely has there been such a rush by the English general public to buy a stamp as occurred then and the stamp was soon selling, I recall, for 10/- (50p) compared with a face value of 4d (less than 2p). Of course anyone who bought this very common stamp for 10/- was soon to find that they had seriously overpaid to obtain their Victory souvenir.
Since 1966, The Post Office/Royal Mail has never had another chance to commemorate a second World Cup victory. Nevertheless several opportunities have been seized to issue stamps which recall the famous victory of 1966.
1999 - Millenium series, The Entertainer's Tale - 1 stamp depicting the 1966 England team captain holding the Jules Rimet Cup.
2006 - World Cup Finals hosted by Germany - 1 stamp noting the 1966 winning team.
2012 - The House Of Windsor, England World Cup winning team of 1966 - 1 stamp from a miniature sheet of 4.
2013 - Famous footballers - 3 stamps depicting members of the 1966 World Cup winning team - Bobby Moore, Gordon Banks and Bobby Charlton.
We must of course wait for the outcome of the upcoming semi-final in which the English team will play against that of Croatia and the final which will be against either Belgium or France but it will be interesting to see what Royal Mail comes up with if the English team captain Harry Kane finds himself holding the World Cup aloft next weekend.
