Hi
I have this preliminary round football programme 16 pages covers all of the prelim matches and squads
Great Britain lost 5-3 to Luxembourg!
Apparently Yugoslavia beat India 10-1 and they played without boots!
The final programme is very scarce
I have seen the next rounds programmes but not this green issue
Is it a just as common as the others?
Thanks

There are all pretty rare. The games involving USSR attract huge interest among the collectors in Russia. Hence the high prices.

They were virtually full Internationals for the teams in Eastern Europe at the time. However in western Europe are just classed as amateur Internationals.

I'm not sure they are all that rare tbh - certainly my final one didn't cost me more than about 20-30 pounds. In general, there are plenty of programmes and tickets which come out of Finland for almost all the Olympic sport which took place there. Having said this, I think I need this issue, so if you're selling it, holtie96... Smile

A couple of years ago, you could indeed get more then 1000 pounds for this one (thanks to the Russians). Last one I saw (this year) was about 300 pounds.
It's the rarest of the 1952 Olympic football programmes.
