Collectors, get with the programme

WHEN my father sold his football programme collection several years ago, the gentleman who bought it had surprising news. Dad was very proud of a complete set of Tottenham Hotspur programmes from 1960-61, the season they won the Double. He thought Hungary's visit to England in 1953 might fetch a few quid, too. He was wrong. The big games, England internationals, FA Cup finals, had little scarcity value. Tens of thousands would have been printed, and many kept as souvenirs, it was explained.
