Celebrative Sticker #99: THE GREAT TORINO – EGRI ERBSTEIN!

Grande Torino forever!

In collaboration with the Museo del Grande Torino we are pleased to announce the release of 23 solidarity stickers dedicated to the “immortals” and to that unforgettable season of football, to the Legend of Grande Torino, including 18 players, 2 coaches, club staff, journalists and on-board staff lost their lives in the plane that crashed in Superga on 4 May 1949.

75 years from that day, through the solidarity Celebrative Stickers, the name, the myth, the legend, the history of Grande Torino will be retraced, the team that every Italian in his heart cannot help but love and respect. An unforgettable season of Italian football, the invincibles in the grenade shirt.

“The tragedy is not dying, but forgetting.. and we do not forget”, the Celebrative Sticker #99 is dedicated to Egri Erbstein.

Egri Erbstein was born on May 13, 1898 in Nagyvarad, at the time a Hungarian part of the Austro-Hungarian Kingdom. As a footballer he began his career in Budapest and then arrived in Italy, first at Fiumana and for a year at Vicenza. He will return to Italy as a coach starting in 1928: Bari, Nocerina, Cagliari and Lucchese with whom he took it from Serie C to Serie A.

Of Jewish origins, he was forced to leave Italy due to the racial laws of the fascist government; interned in a labor camp in Hungary, he manages to save himself from deportation to the extermination camps. He maintains contacts with the world of football as much as possible, in particular with the President of Torino Ferruccio Novo.

He returned to Turin at the end of the war, first as a consultant and then as Technical Director of the Granata club in 1947. Erbstein was recognized for an important role in the construction of the Grande Torino.

Egri Erbstein died in Superga on 4 May 1949, but his legend had already begun before.

First edition in a numbered edition of 106 copies.
