Badge of the Day #96 (Wrexham AFC, 1977-78)


Coming very much closer to home than the predominantly continental aspect of the whole, this latest addition to the collection is an object of a very specific & special, fine vintage (& it certainly appears ‘vintage’, displaying  the patina of its age), commemorating as it does the glorious achievement of Wrexham’s winning of the good old Third Division championship all those many years ago in 1978, thrilling to behold as the season that unfolded before our eyes was to those of us who were there, thus imbuing the badge with a particular hauntological frisson, granting instantly ‘memorable’ access to then, an historical highpoint, from now.
