The Best Goal of all time, according to the eyes of whoever looks at it, made by Diego Armando Maradona in the 1986 World Cup. The Argentines have no doubt that it was the most fantastic of all the goals ever seen. If anyone does not understand what this goal by Maradona meant to many Argentines, I recommend that they read the story: “They will have to Excuse Me” by Eduardo Sacheri. This story can be read in the book: “Waiting for Tito and other football stories” by Editorial Galerna. Diego Armando Maradona, gave us many sporting joys to the Argentines. Here you will find various series of stamps of the World Cups.
In those years the Spaniards were the only ones authorized to enter merchandise through the Río de la Plata. Foreign products coming mostly from Great Britain and France were overvalued from Spain which had a lower productive capacity than these countries. The fledgling leather, wine and tasajo industry wanted to trade directly with England.
The most vigorous promoters of the May Revolution, (Belgrano, Moreno, Castelli and Paso) favored to free themselves from this Spanish defect, which did not agree with the principles of liberal doctrines, in order to trade freely with England.

First Argentine Postage Stamp (Province of Corrientes). My old article about this postage stamp you can see here.
The first stamp of our country, began to circulate on August 21, 1856, in the province of Corrientes. The stamp was designed by a French immigrant, Matías Pipet, who was also the engraver of the only plate on which the seventeen issues were printed, released until 1880, the year in which the postal services were nationalized.
With the Pipet plate, the first stamps were printed, on tissue paper, printed in black ink and with a smooth outline. The stamp had the effigy of the goddess Ceres, Latin name of the deity of agriculture.
The Seal had been entrusted to Pipet, by Dr Juan Pujol, then Governor of Corrientes, who brought the idea of the postal stamping, from a trip he had made through Europe.
