ONE is folded longways and sideways and is torn at the spine; the other has loose pages.
Yet despite their less-than-perfect condition, two vintage Huddersfield Town FA Cup Final programmes look set to fetch nearly £2,000 at auction.
They are in a sale of football memorabilia, coming up on March 24 at the famous Christies auction rooms in London.
A 1922 Town v Preston programme is tipped to fetch up to £1,200, despite being badly folded and creased.
A second programme is from the 1928 Blackburn Rovers v Town cup final at Wembley. Despite having loose centre pages, it is likely to fetch up to £800.
The prices may sound steep but they are very modest compared to the world's most valuable football programme. The programme from the 1901 Sheffield United v Tottenham Hotspur final went for an amazing £14,400 at Sothebys last month.
Experts say condition is very important to programme collectors. Loose pages, stains and folds can all reduce prices.
But there is a lot of interest in the 1922 Cup Final as it was the last to be played at Stamford Bridge before the games were switched to Wembley. Town won 1-0, thanks to a Billy Smith penalty.
Such was the interest in the match that a crowd of more than 1,500 people gathered outside the Examiner's former offices in Ramsden Street, Huddersfield, to find out details of the score.
It was the only time that Town won the FA Cup. The game against Blackburn saw them lose 3-1.
