Charles Buchans Football Monthly 1955
The first issue came out over 70 years ago in September 1951. The first words written were “Our object is to provide a publication that will be worthy of our National game and the grand sportsmen who play and watch it”.
The first issue has started changing hands for £85.00 and the magazines are becoming increasingly collectable – not bad for something that originally cost 7½p (1s/6d).
It ran for just under 23 years in 3 different incarnations finally ceasing in June 1974.
