World Soccer,  1960-90

 

First published in October 1960, WORLD SOCCER still appears on newsagents' bookshelves sixty years later. 

 

For much of it's early life the magazine was devoid of colour other than on the front cover. The subject of the front cover, and the black & white (later colour) back cover photo on later issues are listed against each date.

 

Colour coverage increased for a few months during 1987, and the magazine inevitably moved towards a full colour publication in the 1990's.

 

We have recently picked up a couple of batches of World Soccer, so can now offer a comprehensive stock of this excellent publication. Our recently acquired 1960's issues are in perfect condition. Our stock of 1980's/early 1990's are in similar condition, though a selection of these have come from a batch which were originally sent to the editorial office of national newspaper, so a number therefore carry an address label on the front or back cover. (Of course, if we have the issue without such a label, that copy will be sent, we will notify you if we only have a copy with a label available).  Details of condition/pictures of individual issues which may be of interest will be sent on request.
