    I have a Black & White, professionally printed large photograph, in a pine frame, of George Best playing for Fulham against Wolves in Division 2 in September 1976 at Craven Cottage. I was at the game and met George afterwards for his autograph, which he duly placed onto my Programme. I traced the above mentioned photo, taken at the match, bought a genuine copy of the programme, and displayed the autograph. I have these professionally mounted in the same frame. It looks fantastic. How much would it be worth?

    • david bull says:


      As one of Southampton’s Official Historians, I am, this every day, in the process of editing a profile of your granddad for publication in the Official A-Z of Southampton FC 1885-2012. We have two pix – one of him at Middsboro and the one, that we’re likely to use in the A-Z, of him being greeted by Saints’ manager on 31.07.39.

      Might we exchange notes, do you think?
