Tom (UtdNation) is a British artist. He created a playing card artwork devoted to Eric Cantona, an iconic figure for a British football club, Manchester United. Eric finished his football career in 1997. Now he tries himself in cinema (for example, the 1998 film Elizabeth with Cate Blanchett).
MU’s fans nicknamed him “King Eric”. Eric was voted as Manchester United’s greatest ever player by Inside United magazine (the official magazine of the club).
“Eric Cantona, the King of Old Trafford is fittingly portrayed here as the King of club[s] on this playing card.” ~ Tom
Old Trafford is a football stadium in Old Trafford, Greater Manchester, England. It has been MU’s home ground since 1910 (the only break was from 1941 to 1949, as a result of bomb damage during the Second World War). It is the second-largest football stadium in the United Kingdom.
Eric Cantona was featured by several artists as a playing card King.
