i am considering sending off a Coronation Cup final Programme Celtic v Hibernian 1953 for professional repair/restoration .. what i want to know is this a good idea? will it take value off the item , even though its in poor condition , would welcome any comments and if any collectors can suggest a professional i could email then even better .

agree with everything said, he will also tell you whether you are wasting your time.
He is 100% trustworthy and reliable, does have quite a long waiting list usually. I have never been disappointed.

Don't worry about the staples. He even put new staples in for my programmes. I can't possibly think for one moment how a restored programme by a professional can devalue a programme. If you use Eamonn , be prepared to wait a few weeks , but well worth it. I'd hurry if i were you , as i'm about to send off a few more items soon.

I've just had a look at the ProgPres website, and some the examples there are just incredible!

It's fantastic to see the repairs done so well. I'm just fascinated as to how he does it! Especially when he repairs badly worn edges which are absolutely battered and frayed.

I can understand that there must be ways of removing ink writing, but the repairs look pretty invisible to me on his examples.

The man is a genius.

My thoughts exactly , but you have got to be careful. If you are getting programmes repaired for your collection, then that is fine, but if you are getting programmes restored with the idea of reselling , then be aware, that not everyone will buy repaired items. It is beyond me, but some collectors will have nothing to do with such programmes.
