Product introduction from creator Peter Pesti:
This poster is the result of nearly two decades of work as a ball collector and photographer. It took me many years of research to accumulate enough expert knowledge about balls to be able to determine exactly what type of balls were used in the World Cups and where the original models are located. It also took years until I built such relationships with my ball collector friends, museums and the Adidas Headquarters that I was able to visit them and take photos of balls in many countries around the world, during which I also financed the trips myself. Meanwhile, it was also necessary for me to train as a photographer, step up to a professional level and take pictures of balls during the construction of a special design that is unique in the whole world. Even a book was created from my football pictures in Germany, but they have also been published in many newspapers and magazines, including The New York Times. However, a poster has never been made of them until now. That is why this World Cup poster is only available by me. Not many people can afford a real World Cup ball collection due to financial and space limitations but this poster can easily fit in every home and office, that reflects the passion that lives inside…

Certificate of authenticity:
I personally print the posters on matte paper and issue a certificate of authenticity to each customer. This is not the kind of poster that anyone can buy at IKEA, but I worked out its size so that it fits perfectly in the picture frames available at IKEA.
Size and customization:
The poster offered here is 91×61 cm (24 x 35.8 inches), but feel free to contact me for even larger custom sizes!
