Stanley Gibbons, Pickles the Dog and the Missing World Cup trophy

Paul Fraser Collectibles asks the question on their website, "What links the leading stamp dealer Stanley Gibbons, a used car salesman, the original Jules Rimet World Cup trophy, and a black and white mongrel dog named Pickles?"

Shown above, the Jules Rimet World Cup trophy.
