European Championship finals - all of them except 1964
British Internationals (England, N Ireland, Republic of Ireland, Wales and Scotland) - all homes since 1945 (some earlier) and most aways.

Inter-Cities/UEFA Cup/ Europa Cup Finals - most
FIFA Club World Cups/ Toyota Cups, etc - most
European Super Cups - most
FA Cup Finals - since 1921

Better late than never...........

Stats
Name: Graeme
Forum Nickname: Tynie Topics
Age: 39
Started Collecting: Oh, around 1982

About Me
What do you do for a living?
Credit controller

Which club do you support and why?
Hearts, because my dad and granddad did

What do you collect?
Mainly Hearts homes (all seasons) and Scotland aways (post 1970). Also dabble in Scottish Junior issues, Scotland away tickets and Wimbledon (inc AFC).

How did you get into programme collecting?
Canít quite remember, although the programme stall that used to be at Tynecastle in the early 1980ís was a big influence, at that time a neighbour took me along to games with him and dabbled a bit in collecting himself. Alan Cunningham ran the stall and when it ceased I used to visit his old shop in Edinburgh occasionally.

Your Collection
What was your first football programme?
It was probably England v Scotland 1967 programme (and ticket). My dad was at the game and somehow they survived being thrown out and ended up with me.

What was the last programme you bought?
Hearts v Hibs 1947 I think.

How big is your collection?
Iím not sure to be honest, maybe 3000 / 4000?

How do you store your collection?
Mostly plastic pockets inside ring binders

Whats the oldest programme you own?
Wimbledon 1921-22 issue for a representative match, Isthmian League v Southern League

What is the rarest item in your collection?
Probably Australia v Hearts 1976 in Sydney, itís a newspaper issue and I have never seen another for sale.

Which programme from your club is the rarest and most expensive to obtain?
Anything pre-war, plus programmes from some of the 1950ís tours eg South Africa in 1954 and Australia in 1959, also some early European aways eg. Standard Liege and Valarengen. As for Scotland aways post 1970, it has to be the four Spain issues of the 1970/1980ís, rocking horse poo so to speak and lottery win material!

What is...?
What is your worst buy?
Not really had any really terrible buys, right from the outset my pocket money and in turn my salary has never afforded me the luxury of being slap dash with my purchases!

What is your best buy?
I would have to say a complete collection of 5 programmes from the Hearts tour to Australia and New Zealand in 1976. I purchased them from a Hearts collector who was disposing of his away collection about 20 years ago for £50/60, theyíre worth a wee bit more than that now.

What is the most you have paid for a programme and which one?
A Hearts pre-war issue against Aberdeen. Pre-war Hearts programmes are hard to come by and when they do appear they reach well into three figures.

What is the most you have received for a programme and which one?
Never really dabbled too much in the selling side. Although I did sell a few Australian internationals on eBay which made £30 each and originally cost me nothing.

What is your most prized programme?
Probably the above mentioned Australia v Hearts 1976, and my pre-war issue.

Whats your biggest regret in collecting?
The periods of time when my collection lay dormant for various reasons, when Hearts programmes from the 40ís and 50ís could be had for a lot less than they are now!

The Hobby
In you opinion, is the programme collectors community shrinking or growing?
With the advent of eBay I think the hobby is gradually recovering although Iím not so sure it is as popular as it was in the 1970/80ís, the price of current season issues will still put kids off in my opinion.

What do you enjoy most about the hobby?
The thrill of plugging a gap in your collection that you never thought you would

Where do you buy most of your programmes from?
Almost exclusively from eBay and Almondvale Programmes in Edinburgh, plus attending matches.

The Future
If money was no object, which programme would you most like to add to your collection?
A pre-war Hearts v Hibs issue

Would you ever sell your collection?
Yes. I never say never and if financial circumstances dictate it in future it will go.

How do you wish to develop your collection over the coming years?
Just keep plugging away and filling gaps in my post war Hearts collection (thereís loads!) and my Scotland aways back to 1970 (about 20-odd to go)
