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 a selection of classic 1960's issues available in excellent condition priced at £5, while later issues are priced at £3 each.
