About Me
What do you do for a living? Warehouse manager

Which club do you support and why? Manchester United. Season ticket holder for the last 3 years and my 9 year old son comes up with me from Dorset for most games too. My Dad supported United in his youth often making trips up to Old Trafford with a mate and some of the old London reds in the 70s, I also have 2 younger brothers, both Utd.

What do you collect? Utd post war home+away, domestic, cups, european and friendlies, including pirates, neautral games at Old Trafford and match related stuff too.

How did you get into programme collecting?. By accident in truth, was looking through the local free ads paper and saw a collection of fa cup finals for sale £200. went round and the guy had loads of cup finals including european, an extensive 60s and 70s collection of Watford and Arsenal homes, and a few more bits and pieces, think it was 5 big boxes. I kept the few Utd finals that were there and sold the rest on Ebay indivudually for about £700. Afew months later I paid just under £500 for a huge Man Utd collection which makes up a large part of my collection today.

Your Collection
What was your first football programme? 1979 FA Cup Final v Arsenal.

What was the last programme you bought? Man Utd v Leeds 46/47 - £72

How big is your collection? 60/61-present 90-95% complete at a guess, 46/47-59/60 is a relatively new expansion to my collection so only a handful from each season at present, with the exception of 57/58 and 58/59 which I have 20 odd from each season.

How do you store your collection? Official Utd programme binders, red for homes and black for aways all with club badge and season in gold.

Whats the oldest programme you own? Utd v Bolton Xmas eve 1946.

What is the rarest item in your collection? Home to Norwich City 78/79 postponed league match, sells for around the £400 mark, paid 50p for it.

Which programme from your club is the rarest and most expensive to obtain? Hmm, away to Sarajevo I guess, enough said on here about that one. 15k anyone?

What is...?
What is your worst buy? none really, I only ever buy what I want and only pay what I think its worth, I dont regret any purchase.
What is your best buy? See postponed v Norwich above.
What is the most you have paid for a programme and which one? Aston Villa v Burnley league cup semi final replay at Old Trafford, almost mint, paid £150 for it.
What is the most you have received for a programme and which one? Dont really sell alot but I think I got about £55 for a 70s european cup final programme once, cant remember which though.
What is your most prized programme? Dont have any single one I favour but for some reason I love my Toyota cup programme from Japan 1999.
Whats your biggest regret in collecting? Not starting earlier as I had a period in my life from the age of 19-24 where I was young free single and earning a shed load of money every week, could have bought alot back then!

The Hobby
In you opinion, is the programme collectors communtiy shrinking or growing? Definately growing, I see younger people gettig into it aswell, which is great. Cost wise it seems to be good at the moment aswell, people just cant afford to pay as much anymore, and more rare stuff is becoming available as skint people try to cash in.
What do you enjoy most about the hobby? Anytime I add something to my collection I'm truly glad, but I also keep a record of Utd games in history and every now and again I'll find out something I didnt know, a youth friendly from the 50s or even a different copy of an away champions league tie.
Where do you buy most of your programmes from? Ebay and a few from here or at the stalls near Old Trafford.

The Future
If money was no object, which programme would you most like to add to your collection? Wolves postponed 57/58: Sarajevo away 67/68 for a start.
Would you ever sell your collection? No
How do you wish to develop your collection over the coming years? I want to be complete post Munich season by next year, and after that concentrate on 46/47 - 56/57, which is becoming harder to obtain beacuse of the price of individual items, I never want to be complete though, wheres the fun in that??.


Just copied the main text from above, hope you enjoyed what does it for me in this hobby!

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)


Might need to update some of this Laughing
