After a great deal of encouragement from my wife I have come to the conclusion that the time has come to clear our loft of the collection of football programmes that have been lying there safely boxed up for the last 20 plus years. The collection mainly dates to the 1960s and 70s, with a large amount of Liverpool Everton and Tranmere home and aways but many many more besides.

So far I have got about 650 of them on a Microsoft Excel spreadsheet, but the job is quite simply too time consuming for me, as I estimate that there are at least another 1500 awaiting me! Included in the collection cup finals, semifinals and a great number of testimonials and other odd and unusual items. Looking on the various websites, I have quite a lot that is worthwhile, and of course some that is not. The vast bulk of the collection is in good or very good condition.

I realise that if I sell the collection as a block I will get less for it, but the alternative would be to have it take over my life (and I guess that's why it found its way into the loft in the first place) does anybody out there know of any honest person/s who would be interested in giving me a reasonable deal on this?

Not a great lover of the modern day prog at all , can take them or leave them, 50s & 60 was i think a golden age for collecting the MDP.

Sinbad on Brookside said "women, can't live with them... and ... if you don't know how to lay a patio you can't live without them" Smile

Lucky for me mine is a gem (had to put that in in case she's looking)
