Post subject: Bristol Rovers advice please
Reply with quote

I have been offered a large collection of Bristol Rovers home and away programmes from the late 1960s and 1970s (it's amazing what turns up in small Welsh towns!). I am interested in buying it but my knowledge of the Pirates' scarcer programmes is somewhat limited. I know there are far more knowledgeable Rovers aficionados than me on this forum so can anybody please advise me of any rarities, harder issues to obtain, etc that I should keep my eye out for. Any advice would be very gratefully received.
Diolch pawb, Mark Thumbs Up

Single sheet Rovers v C Palace, League Cup 2nd round, 25.9.1963 - original printed in blue, beware photocopies in black - used to be rare and fetched over £100. Not sure how rare today but it's one to look out for.

Looking at 1965 to 1950

I think a single sheet Rochdale v Bristol Rovers 27.3.74. is probably the most difficult League game in this period.

A few Rovers home postponed games
Luton Town 20.12.69 (not sure if this exists)
Rotherham United 19.10.71
Blackburn Rovers 9.2.74
Preston North End 9.2.80

I don't know much about friendlies, but a single sheet Exeter City V Rovers 1.8.69 went for about £60 on eBay recently. Also another one went for £10!

I'm still looking for the Luton and Blackburn postponed, if anyone can help!

Thanks to flashhat for confirming the Luton issue.

Also I forgot to mention pastpirate's website, which is a great source of Rovers information. It doesn't have the Luton postponed though!

The harder to obtain Pirate programme which I still need after 25 years of looking is

1954/55 Luton Town v Bristol Rovers dated 26th February 1955 Division Two, again a postponed match.

Flashhat.
Would you mind if I add the Luton one to my site? If you PM me your name I will give you credit for providing it.

Cheers, Jamie.
