Hi everyone

I'm new to this place so please bear with me.
I got told about it and have watched the forum for a month or so.
Must say it seems a great place for collectors to have a chat and the information and knowledge which is passed on is of great value.

I'm a Manchester United collector of pre 1960's programmes I don't bother with modern programmes.

I'm very interested in 1940's and pre war United home and away.

My collection is not massive but I like what I have so far.

I would be looking for advice on what to purchase from collectors with more knowledge than myself.

Anyway I look forward to talking to you soon.

David.

Welcome to the forum David.
As a collector of pre 1950 home and away programmes you will need deep pockets but you can sometimes find some bargains out there.
We have one of the biggest collectors of Man Utd items in the game on this forum called Leslie who is always willing to share his knowledge of the club.
So you are in good hands.
If you let forum members know what you are looking for, we may have items gor sale or exchange.
Best wishes

Hi Charlie

Welcome to the forum. I have a few MUFC 1940s programmes if I could PM you with the details? I am a new dealer and feel my prices are quite reasonable...

Thanks for the kind words Holtie.
After giving up collecting quite a few years ago I've got the 'bug' back again.
There are some silly prices quoted nowadays compared to the past.
I suppose ebay has made items more accessible to ordinary collectors but there are still high buy it nows for relative easy to get programmes.
I'm pretty much sorted out for United homes in the 40's not so much the pre war homes which I want to build up but I'm seriously short of 1940's aways against most clubs I only have three or four.
Also Holtie maybe you can help? I think it was Fishy who kindly pointed me in the direction of Eamonn ? who does programme repairs? I have three that need attention. Ive been ringing Eammon all day and sent him an email but no response so far do you know if he's still doing repairs or could he just be away from the office?

Anyway thanks again I'm really liking how friendly and helpful members are on here.

Hi Andy
thanks for getting in touch.
I'm looking for most clubs United away in the 1940's.
I do prefer the best condition possible with them if you can help?
Also trying to build pre war programmes up but realise they will be few and far between.

Thanks Andy

Any idea anyone regarding Eamonn?
He may be away as he is incredibly reliable, give it w couple of days and if anyone knows differently they will tell you.

Charlie Mitten, this is your namesake getting kicked in the nuts by Robertson, the Chelsea keeper, when he played for Fulham in 1952.

That could be a thread in itself - how many of us have names which we share with famous or known footballers? It could be an interesting one.

Welcome to the forum by the way!

I believe from story's of the Newton Heath day's that they really were a handy crew no professional fouls in them days just sparking someone out cold with one dig to the chin. I think there was one player in particular who was renowned for it think he ended up getting banned from playing...can't remember his name or the years but in the early part of United's history?

I was only discussing him today with David[Hydemaine]

1925-6 FA Cup Semi at Bramhall Lane-he knocked out cold a City player and was sent off, then he was banned the following season for a time.
Roy Keane a hard man!, Bremner, Hunter Mackay and all the rest of them.
Barson was probably a nutter, used to leave his shirt off until the last moment I heard so the opponents could take a good look-deffo a nutter!

looks it too https://flic.kr/p/6BjJZM
this was the insert from that 1925-6 Semi

Being serious for a moment welcome to the site Charlie........there is a wealth of knowledge on this forum covering many different teams and practically all aspects of the football collecting world........programmes, signatures, hand books, shirts, press photographs, etc etc. As this thread demonstrates you won't have a shortage of fellow collectors willing to help with your collection or information!

Thanks Phil yes everyone has been helpful. It's a really good site for chat and networking. I used to go to fairs years ago for the same reasons.
Now I can do all that sat at home(lazy old sod)
Some of the knowledge and experience on here is unbelievable.
Phil I have loads of odds and sods of programme's from a variety of teams in a big box. I don't want any money for them they are just taking up space. Mainly 1960's and 1970's some lower leagues as well as old 1st Division How do I go about asking if anyone wants them? I could meet them Merseyside or Greater Manchester area for a drop off they will need a car as the box is heavy.

Best thing to do Charlie is put together a list of what you have preferely with a price! Some on here might not be interested as their pretty recent but its worth a try. You might even consider a "all in" price........for the whole collection! If your serious about giving them away I'm sure someone on here will take them off your hands!
