Default Anybody here collect programs?

I guess I am thinking primarily of 1960s AFL programs but really any football program. I have been looking at AFL programs on ebay, and I am absolutely blown away by the art work/graphics. Anyone have any football programs(college or pro) to show?

I've had hundreds of AFL programs (mostly Chargers) over the years. Now is a pretty good time to purchase them, at least the Chargers ones. You can not get some early 60s Chargers programs for $25-$50 apiece, when they were in the $200-$300 range a few years ago. The price on Chargers stuff has taken a huge hit since the move.

I may try and make some offers. Many prices are still in the stratosphere.

This is such a bizarre situation that I can't wrap my head around it. I would think vintage Charger stuff from San Diego would go UP in value after a move.

What do you think caused this, Todd? Local collectors fed up with Spanos?

Yes. So many people have just said "screw it" to the entire franchise. Spanos was certainly the source. It's a shame because the team actually has great history despite not winning a Super Bowl. But Spanos just absolutely killed the fan base.

Even for a life long fan outside of the west coast, it is all unsettling. I even have read talk about totally rebranding the team when the new stadium opens. If that happens, I am done. I would still collect the team from a historical perspective, but my ongoing fandom (lukewarm as it currently is) would end. It is all totally unnecessary. This franchise has a rich and colorful history and has had some wonderful teams, players, and coaches! The current ownership (I won't even use the name) is just about the worst in all of professional sports history! We need someone to come riding in on one of those white Charger horses depicted on the early 60s programs to save the day!

Great programs, Mike! That autographed NFL Championship program is one of my favorite items of yours. That is just an incredible piece.
