    Apologies in advance to forum admins if I've posted this in the wrong place, and please feel free to move it if required. I'm trying to get hold of a programme of the Arsenal game 1951-52 season - the year United won the league, but haven't been able to track one down for love nor money. If anyone has one and are willing to sell, could you drop me a PM? I need it for my collection of landmark games/seasons. I've now collected the entire Munich season home and away but for the very last Babes match at Red Star. I went to the graves of Eddie Colman and Geoff Bent here in Salford for the anniversary last week. Anyway I digress. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    I can't help, but good luck! You should share a snapshot of your collection if you can.

    The Munich season folder is out on loan at the moment, but that's a good idea. That's the pride and joy of my collection.

    Cheers. I don't have season after season complete collections; 57-58 is my only complete season, except for 2006-07, and I'm not sure why the latter came about. My collection is mainly significant games and rarities e.g. first European game, title winning games, cup finals. I've now got the thick end of all home European games; still a few gaps to fill.

    My Grandad has boxes and boxes and boxes of programmes from that era (he's an Arsenal fan), after 48 when he left the army, and before 57 when my mum was born.

    No promises at all, but I'll definitely ask him if I can have a look through the boxes to see if there's one there.

    Good luck regardless. Sounds like a very fulfilling hobby. The only thing I collect is watches, and that's a very bland collection for anyone but me :D

    But its your collection and that's all that matters, you shouldn't need to justify it to anyone :)
    @Salus Populi Suprema Lex good luck on your hunt.

    I used to run a website and eBay shop selling, and have my own collection of Utd memorabilia totalling 5000+ items.

    I have the programme you're looking for, and maybe some others too if you'd like to send a list or something?
