Launched in 1960, "World Soccer" is the world's longest continuously running football magazine, still appearing each month on newsagents' shelves to this day.
We have obtained a stock of World Soccer magazines from 1979 through to 1988 in first class condition. With the exception of a spell during 1987, the publciation was largely devoid of colour during this period, with just a colour front cover picture and a black & white back cover, details of which are included in the listings here.
ALL WORLD SOCCER MAGAZINES ARE PRICED AT £2 EACH
