Teletext was a great British invention which launched in 1974 and was the primary source of information for millions of people in this country until its switchoff in 2012 due to changes in technology. Click here for more about teletext.
Over four decades, the medium was the first place football fans looked for news and live scores with many a transfer rumour quashed with the words 'well, there's nothing about it on teletext'!
Retrotext is a celebration of the iconic design of teletext and the power of sport to create cherished moments in time - from Liverpool's first European Cup triumph in 1977 to the most recent, Ricky Villa's 1981 wonder goal in the 100th FA Cup Final, Everton's greatest-ever 1980s team, Sir Alex Ferguson's 'football, bloody hell' moment in 1999, the 2005 Miracle Of Milan and the giant-killing of minnows Wigan against moneybags Manchester City in 2013, plus everything in between.
Great sporting occasions are something which live with you forever but, over the years, the details of the day can be forgotten and our Retrotext mugs vividly bring these back to life, making a unique gift for any occasion.
