Fun While It Lasted’s gallery of World Football League programs from 1974 and 1975.

During the WFL’s first season, all 12 clubs sold a national game magazine called Football World, which combined national combat and cover art with some local feature stories and game rosters. These are very common and there are dozens available on e-Bay at any given moment and you shouldn’t have to pay more than $5.00 to $10.00 for most editions. The 1974 World Bowl program is sought after and can fetch $50 – $100.

During the second abbreviated season in 1975, each club was responsible for producing their own game program. Many of these 1975 programs are extremely attractive, with lavishly illustrated covers or cartoon artwork. 1975 programs from the Birmingham Vulcans, San Antonio Wings and Shreveport Steamer seem to have made their way into the collectors market by the thousands and are easily available on e-Bay every day. By contrast, programs from the 1975 Charlotte Hornets, Hawaiians, Philadelphia Bell and Portland Thunder are extremely rare and garner steep prices from collectors.

  1. I own several WFL programs and find that many have the same info so what I would be interested in are the rosters in each program and any stats in the programs.
