Has won England Youth, Under-23 and one full cap. Began as an apprentice with the Hammers in 1964 and has gone on to complete 500 League games for his only club. He's seen good times and bad, but can look back on victories in the F.A. Cup and European Cup Winners' Cup, plus the Second Division Championship. Lampard has virtually made West Ham's number three shirt his own.

The American, Chicago based Wrigley Company was founded in 1891 and originally sold products that included such items as soap and baking powder. The company began packaging chewing gum with each can of baking powder. The chewing gum eventually became more popular than the baking powder itself and Wrigley’s reoriented the company to produce the popular chewing gum. The UK subsidiary company based in Plymouth produced their leading PK brand Chewing Gum. In 1983 they issued free with their family packs the “PK Football Facts” card. One card for each of the 22 First Division sides competing in the 1983-84 season, although only 19 have been recorded. Facts recorded on the cards include, Year formed, Ground name, Record attendance, Record win, Nickname and Manager. These 67x56mm cards are now highly sought after and command the princely sum of £25.
