    Because one can never have too many David Beckham pics.

    The retired soccer star is ready to head out on the field again—well, at least the publishing field—as he gears up to release a book of photos chronicling his highly publicized sports career.

    Per Reuters, Victoria's Beckham's hubby has struck a deal with U.K.-based Headline Publishing Group to work on the as-yet-unnamed tome, which is scheduled to hit shelves on Oct. 31.

    The book will corral images from the 38-year-old's sprawling, globe-trotting career, which included stints with U.K.'s Manchester United, Spain's Real Madrid, Los Angeles' LA Galaxy and, most recently, France's Paris St.-Germain.

    "David Beckham is, without a doubt, the most universally recognized and popular sports person on the planet, and this gorgeous book will be a superb way for his millions of fans around the world to celebrate David's remarkable achievements within football," Headline Publishing Group said in a statement.

    In May, Beckham announced that he was retiring from soccer after a 20-year career that, during his time with Manchester United, saw him win two FA Cups and the Intercontinental Cup, among a slew of victories on the field.

    His stint with England's national team—115 appearances over 11 years—stands as a record for a player.

    But Beckham has remained anything but idle since hanging up his cleats.

    He's been maxing out his star power with a slew of product deals, hawking H&M clothing as well as his own celebrity fragrance.

    He's has also been lapping up his daddy downtime: The father of four has been spotted spending more time with his family, recently participating in a sports day at his kids' school in London, where—surprise!—he aced a race against other dads and won the gold medal. Score!
