From Telstar to Tricolore

In 1970, Adidas produced an iconic football whose unmistakable, contrasting panels have become universal shorthand for the beautiful game; that ball was the Telstar Durlast.  Eight years later, Adidas would follow one timeless design with another; one that, to a certain generation of fan, remains the quintessential World Cup ball; the Adidas Tango.

In 'From Tristar to Tricolore' Look What it Means to Him takes a glance at the Tristar and Tango designs that spanned World Cups from 1970 through 1998, providing a sprinkling of facts along the way while linking it all together with a slightly over-the-top space theme.
