Sport Express

 

 

Initially launched as Sport Weekly in 1945, the magazine ran in various formats until May 1957, with a name change to Sport Express. While not purely relying on football content, it was naturally a high component part during the football season in particular, and aspects typically common in later publications are clearly evident here.

 

We have obtained a selection of Sport Express magazines from 1954 to 1957, with the majority in good condition, a few have had rusty staples removed, while there are couple with cellotaped spines. The front cover picture is listed for each issue.

 

UNLESS STATED, ALL COPIES OF SPORT EXPRESS MAGAZINES ARE PRICED AT £4 EACH
