INTERSPORT World Cup 90 Edition Catalogue Match Insert

I bought a load of Match magazines from 1990 recently, and in one of them was this great INTERSPORT catalogue insert.

Being 1990 and all, everything’s gone a bit dayglo and rave-y, with shellsuits, loud graphics, geometric patterns woven into the man-made fibre shirts, and unnecessary spot colour on the boots!

The front cover – featuring happy England & Scotland footballers!

Image

England & Scotland kits, and a young Owen Hargreaves!

Image

His & Hers Scotland kit, plus Andy Roxburgh & Sir Bobby Robson…

Image

A handy visual guide to Italy, DIadora gear, & other nation’s adidas shirts…

Image

The Groups, & youth wear…

Image

Boots, balls & goalie gloves…

Image

More boots & balls…

Prices vary, but you’re looking at a very expensive (for the time) £59.99 for the Diadora Magic Van Basten boots! But then they are pro level.

The back cover – INTERSPORT shops nationwide. Remember any of them?

I grew up with Pilch’s in Norwich, and lived in Nottingham for 20 years so knew the Broadmarsh Shopping Centre well. I live in Bradford now, and Bridge Street is a faint shadow of what it once was. Nostalgia, tinged with sadness at the passing of so many great sports shops…
