    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.

    I see the barcalona v hibs 1960 is on eBay at £1750 plus £40 p&p, this must be the most expensive?

    IMO,.......Just because they are looking for this price does not mean that any Hibs collector is stupid enough to buy it (at that price!!).

    Its probably a £500 to £600 prog tops and you will find that all the top Hibs collectors already have it, and bought it for considerably lower than that amount. Over the years, its been easier to find than the postponed home prog. seven flags!!! (my fave number.).

    It wasnít that many years ago when I picked it up and it was quite a bit higher than £600.
    Between £800 to 1k is a realistic value IMO

    Now, now top collectors! This was only ever meant to be a sub forum intended for collectors to have a blether. Post your rarities and let the rest of us envy you.

    I picked up a few rare ones a number of years back.

    From 1888/89 i have Newcastle United v Hibernians which as far as i know is the first programme known to feature Hibs. Its a bit fragile given 131 years old & i have it framed.

    From 1925/26 the first known (again as far as i know) home prog to have been printed was 22/8/25 against Killie. The good guys won 8-0 that day. From later that season i also have a single team sheet prog from an away game v Arsenal. I'm missing around another 40 from that season though so if anyone can help please let me know

    In terms of more recent rare ones i posted above about the printers proof from the St J postponed in 1968. ETB may have more to add on this one one day . Also from 1985 a friendly i cant find record of away to Brightons Select on 28/7/85. Got this from our very own Hibeg at his usual knock down price. Not.

    One of my favourites is the Gordon Smith testimonial v Man Utd. The programme itself it reasonably common but i have an original match report from the following day entitled 'Champions Clash - Hibs dazzle the men from Manchester' with a match report under the scoreline which was 7-3 to Hibs...

    i'll try (again) to post some pics shortly..

    I got £70 recently (just realised the figure there ) for the 0-7 programme (mint). Didn't expect anything more really. Saw them go for £100+ in the past, but rare to see them go for that sort of figure now. I would say there are loads of other programmes above that on the Holy grail.

    I still need to find the 21/5/16 programme at a reasonable price. There must be loads kicking about but whenever I see them on sale they always seem to be far too excessive.

    I know G, my point was that I estimated current value £800 to 1k. You were a bit lower 😀. I think it would be a new Hibs collector that bought it, not a Barca collector. There are not that many about for the value to drop to £500 or £600.
    Itís just like the 2016 Scottish Cup run. Numerous copies of most programmes were kicking about. Now the final appears to be £50 standard. ICT away and Hearts home are much rarer.
    Most Dealers donít have copies so demand now exceeds supply.
    Europeans, friendlies and 2016 run will always be the most collectible issues.

    I've got two. I bought as much as I could on the way out the ground. I'm not ready to sell yet as I'm keeping one of them obviously.
