    What is THE holy grail of Hibs programmes?

    Been following an eBay auction for Hearts v Hibs 1/1/73 programme (sold today for £74 which afaik is about par for that item?) and it got me thinking.

    Some of you guys have a better handle on this than I have, so out of morbid curiosity - a question.

    What is the most sought after Hibs programme out there, be it due to either rarity or price or importance or some other reason?

    I always thought that the postponed Barcelona from 1960? would be the grail, and that it would never come up for sale. I managed to get it from Ebay and there's been another couple sold there since.

    All collectors will have different programmes on their wants lists. Personally I still require one home to complete my collection back to 1946/7, so if anyone has Hibs v Airdrie 13/9/47 kicking about I might show a bit of interest

    The other one required would complete my Hibs European aways. As has been mentioned before on this forum, Keflavik was thought to be a non issue but one appeared about 4 years ago. Very strange how no more came back with the players but it is now on my list.

    I donít class them as issues ( simply because I donít have them all )

    Iím missing Motherwell in early 60s, but nobody has actually seen it AFAIK. Also Rangers in early 70s.

    I have the Barca and Partick ones.

    Rare Programmes

    The Hibs Reserve Programme v Dundee No.44. from APRIL 14TH 1956.(BIG ISSUE)
    The Hibs v Ayr United Prog. No.16 from 1st March 1978 (postponed).
    THE Hibs v St Johnstone. No.15 from Sat 28th December 1968 (postponed).

    I think these are the hardest since 1949.

    As ETB knows very well the latter one is a printers proof copy which is the version prior to a print run goes live. I have a copy framed which I was going to upload a pic of but I canít seem to do this from my phone. Anyone know if this can be done? I click ĎAttachmentí button & upload pic from my album but it doesnít seem to like it.

    If you go to Manage Attachments it should let you upload, select and insert inline from there.
    I never even had these postponed issues down as potentially existing....! I need to read up more.
