A spectacular art Deco football poster from 1932 advertising a match between the two Spanish teams Valencia C.F. and Donostia FC.
The poster displays two players jumping in the air - fighting for the ball. Note their shirts reveals a bit more than contemporary shirts. Also note the brown leather ball - that ball would be very heavy on rainy days.
As seen on the poster the match was played in Primera División January the 12th at Mestalla Stadium (located in Valencia). The match ended 7-1 for Valencia - the biggest victory in that season. Despite the victory Valencia ende as number 10 out of 12 that season. Donostia FC ended as 11 and Real Betis won the league for the first time.
I was not familiar with the club Donostia FC before I found this poster so I had to do some research. The name for the club today is Real Sociedad but the club was renamed during the Spanish Civil War but in 1939 the club recovers its name of Real Sociedad. That name is from 1910 given by the Spanish King as he liked to spend his holiday around the club's home city of San Sebastián.
This is a great historical poster which is an absolutely must-have for anyone who appreciates both football and vintage posters.
