    The one that is up is a home game for Willie McCartneys testimonial. Donít think itís that rare..Iíd stand corrected but think going rate around £100 for it.
    We played Man Utd away on 29/3/52. Itís not particularly rare either I donít think..prices £30-60 depending on condition.
    We also played them away on 30/9/53. This one is pretty rare as it was midweek, 515 KO & was testimonial for Tom Curry (Man U trainer). Might be up to £200 this one.

    In my opinion the rarest is the Leeds Utd friendly from 54/5 (not the 53/4). Think Doncaster one crops up reasonably regularly. Bury 55/6 also quite rare as small single sheet.

    Perhaps others can confirm all this.

    Iím looking for Walsall 88/9 if anyone has it!

    Nb we played Spurs 9 times in 11 seasons all away from home..1948 to 1959

    There's an old fella who has a stall at tynemouth market on a Saturday and deals almost exclusively in Newcastle programmes, I asked him about nufc v hibs stuff from the 50's and he reckoned he had some but was pretty disorganised and couldn't find them. I've asked him to put any aside and will call down this sat, is it the friendly from 3/10/1956 your after ?
    Probably a long shot, but ill ask him.
