Soccer Star first appeared in 1952, under the title "Raich Carter's Soccer Star", no doubt to give the publication the same credability enjoyed by it's monthly rival carrying Charles Buchan's name. With a good mix of news, features and results it had no serious competition until Goal and Shoot appeared in the late 1960's. The new publications with greatly enhanced colour features instantly made Soccer Star look tired and dated, and the magazine ceased publication in June 1970.
Currently, selection of stock starts from 1960. Details of the front/back cover photographs are listed.
