RCL Sporting Ceramic Icons have launched their latest sporting figure which is of the one and only Billy Liddell. This limited edition fine bone china figure stands ten inches high, is hand painted, the base has a marble effect finish, and the scroll is printed with Billy's statistics for Liverpool.
RCL Sporting Ceramic Icons produce fine bone china figures in the finest traditions of the old Royal Worcester works. These are top quality products, hand painted and signed by famous ex-Royal Worcester artists.
Phyllis Liddell, Billy's widow, was presented in March 2009 with Billy's wonderful statuette

"Aside from being a magnificent player, one of the great things about him was he was a giant of a man too. Though he always made you queue for his autograph, he always stayed to sign every single one. Everyone respected him. He would tell us that if there was any pushing and shoving he wouldn't sign any and we all lined up in an orderly fashion. Then, and it didn't matter how long it took, he would sign every single one with a proper signature, not just some quick scribble.
He was a great figurehead for Liverpool Football Club in an era when you didn't really have stars as such, but he was a very moderate and humble man. I was lucky enough to meet and get to know Billy quite well in later years. He was the exception to the rule that says you should never meet your heroes and was a truly great man."
