The term hat-trick finds its origins in cricket. Nearly a century later, however, the real reason it was created was discovered. The term was needed to describe the impact Jimmy Greaves would have on the game of soccer. The all time record holder for most hat-tricks for England, Greaves was a man destined for legend. He is England’s 4th highest goals corer, and Greaves would have been written in as England’s most iconic soccer player had he not gotten injured and Geoff Hurst been given the go ahead to play in England’s 1966 World Cup Final.
Remember this legendary hall of famer with this astonishing print signed by Greaves and 12 of the other legends of his time. Pat Jennings, Steve Perryman, Sir Geoff Hurst, Terry Dyson, George Cohen, Ron Harris, Martin Peters, Bobby Smith, Dave MacKay, Cliff Jones, Martin Chivers, Ossie Ardiles, and Peter Bonetti all helped celebrate Greaves and sign this photo, and their good deed has left us with a beautiful work of art capable of captivating any try fan of the era.
