Picked this up among a small bunch of Soccer America weekly magazines from the early 1970s. Can anyone give me a rough guide to its rarity and value please? Any help would be appreciated.

Hi Mark
Contact Steve Marsh at the West Ham website They Fly So High, he is incredibly helpful.
Let me know if you need any details.

Hi

I have 32/39 of the West Ham tour programmes in USA/Canada from 60s/70s and this is one of the rarest - the 1971 tour has some of the hardest ones to obtain as we visited some very out of the way places (earlier tours were based in either New York or Baltimore). In 1971, games took place on school playing fields, we played the same opponents on multiple occasions and we ended up with two games in Bermuda - all rather disorganised

The issue you have was a double issue programme for two games played in the Bay area. In between we played in Los Angeles (also against Necaxa) and we went on to play RW Essen again in Seattle and Los Angeles (I have all of these)

Very rare programme but the upper limit on West Ham friendlies always seems to be about #200-#300 these days

My copy is illustrated here
