I consider all my programmes equally worth of keeping, but how you got the programme bug (whether at your first ever match or later) is interesting. In my case, my first ever game was Oxford United v. Bristol Rovers on 06/12/75. Although I had asked to be taken to an Oxford United home game, I don't think I was really aware of the fact that there were such things as programmes and so it was a surprise when my father said to me "I'm going to buy a programme" as we entered the Manor Ground, even though he was never a collector. It was a newspaper style issue and I left it lying around the house when I got home and had finished reading it. A few days later it disappeared altogether, probably thrown away by my mother who did not realise its significance. After that, I made sure that I stored all future programmes away in my bedroom. I did eventually get a copy of the missing programme from the Bristol Rovers club shop when I ticked Eastville in 1984. Incidentally the 1975-76 Oxford United programmes are much sought after by collectors, at least when compared with other seasons.
