Good news. I had the forethought to make notes on things of particular interest in past WS issues, so I managed to find the list I was talking about. It's from the Apr 61 issue of WS, and has two other poll results to go with the 1960 Ballon. I have to say the Il Calcio results look to be solid stuff for something made by two guys. It gets points for including SA and having players from every position. From the previous month's issue, here's a breakdown by position: 8 GKs 8 FBs 8 CBs 13 WHs 25 FWs Il Calcio's best team: Yashin; Durkovic, Martinez; Szymaniak, Sipos, Benitez; Hamrin, Suarez, Seeler, Pele, Charlton Miroir were the rivals of France football. Their list is more over the place, typical French list. Jeffery actually does criticize the Ballon for having too much emphasis on forwards. He also makes note how a player that travels more, and thus is seen by more voters, has an advantage over a stay-at-home guy. Bonus: Kenneth Wolstenholme on Ballon 1960: "From an English viewpoint the results of the poll might shock some people". Haha, good ol' England.
