Never let it be said that these auction aren't
cashing in on the big derby
For sale by auction we have two home and three away programmes. Usual rules. Don't bid if you can't or don't intend to pay. Auction ends Monday 17th at 5.00 pm. Proceeds to CASTrust. The winners will need to collect or pay postage. Lot A Two Charlton homes from 10/9/66 and 15/9/64.
Both in very good condition.
The 1966 game has the added bonus of a newspaper report from the Sunday People written by Sam Bartram. Ron Saunders' goal earned Charlton a point in the 1 - 1 draw in front of 16, 986.
The 1964 game was lost 1- 2 in front of a Tuesday night crowd of 31, 498. It was the first league meeting for nearly 30 years as Palace had finally reached the dizzy heights (for them) of the old Division 2. 15 days later 29,878 saw the reverse fixture on a Wednesday night at Selhurst
Opening bid £4Lot B: Three Palace away programmes.
Just to show how hard Palace try to be "different" the three programmes are all different sizes.
The first, from 14/1/67, is a tiny 4.25" x 5.5" and dates from the time when Palace played in Claret and Blue and had never heard of the nickname Eagles. Very good condition.
The 2nd programme is from 31/8/68. It has the same plain cover design but is now normal programme size. There is some wear and tear on this programme's cover but it is otherwise good. Goals from Tees, Tracey and Campbell secured a 3 - 3 draw, It could have been more if Harry Gregory's penalty hadn't hit the underside of the bar and been cleared.
By the time of the third programme (20/10/77) Palace are experimenting with a strange letter box shape programme. Condition is good with some small creases. Charlton earned a draw with what I believe was the first ever league goal by Steve Gritt.
Opening bid for all three aways £5
