There's over 3,600 programmes in there, there's 8 missing (all aways); all the rest are there.
Plus many rare friendlies like vs Albion Rovers 46-47; Dublin Bohemians, Shamrock Rovers, The Army (away) 47-48; Chester (A) 48-49; Clyde (away in Belfast), Home Farm away 53-54; Shamrock Rovers & Glentoran (A) 56-57; plus lots more.
I've been collecting since 1959 when I started watching the Blues. I'm in my early 70s now and think it's time to move it on, especially as my son & daughter are both Reds (but have hardly ever been!).
If anyone wants lists, just email me â€” I've listed them all during lockdown.

I imagine you've searched or advertised for the missing eight programmes, they could increase the value of your collection obviously. Possibly Everton fans on here might have some of them; list them just in case. I bet they are from the 1940s or 1950s.

Congratulations on amassing such a fine collection â€“ make that an exceptional one.
Besides feeling a sense of freedom, you be helping many a youngster with their collections.

I would recommend this to anyone looking to get the full list of Everton programmes post-1945.

Also got one from a game at Goodison that wasn't played, Everton v Spurs from about 1975, game was called off late due to a frozen pitch and me dad got us a programme in the morning because he worked for Everton pools. I'd love to know how rare that is, could be a one-off.

The Army one could have some value, there might be some famous names in the Army team that played that day, the Everton team would, most probably, have been a mixture of reserves and older players, that fixture was an annual event, it was usually played during the season, not pre season.

Not sure but I think the game was played much later and it would be a bit weird having a date on the programme months earlier than when the match was played. Plus the relevance of stuff in it could have changed drastically, players may have moved on, league tables obviously changed, even managers sacked.
I'll have to dig for them, could be interesting.
