'New' Football Monthly.

 

The successor to Charles Buchan's original publication first appeared in 1974, and also incorporated the Football Digest and Football Pictorial publications. It was a particularly first class magazine throughout the 1980's, but the quality of layout and writing became narrow and dipped in the 1990's, with publication ending with the final issue in October 1996.

 

We are pleased to be able to advise collectors that we have recently obtained a substantial fresh batch of Football Monthly magazines. There are a few with slight folds/nicks, but the majority are in excellent condition.

 

Details of the colour cover and centre colour album are listed against the date of each issue. (The back cover varied from advertisements to player pictures, so for the purposes of this page, those details are not listed).

 

WITH THE EXCEPTION OF ISSUE 1,  ALL COPIES OF FOOTBALL MONTHLY ARE PRICED AT £1 EACH.
